Chris Bey has been collecting championships in 2023, winning the IMPACT and Revolver Tag Team Championships alongside Ace Austin and winning the FSW Mecca Grand Championship.
Bey & Austin have built off the momentum they gained in NJPW Super Junior Tag League, where they finished second to the CHAOS duo of Lio Rush & YOH.
Speaking to SP3 of Tru Heel Heat, Bey discussed his partnership with Ace.
"Man, it's been great, you know. Ace and I had a pretty good relationship before the tour and you know especially being teamed up, we're both creative and we're both professional so we wanted to make it work. But Japan really made us brothers, you know. Japan can turn people into the closest friends or it can split people, you know. Any time of tour can, you know, it can be stressful, but I think for me and Ace, we thrived through it and we became a better unit. And we were able to come back and take everything that we learned and apply it to our game right now and apply it to our craft right now. It took us so far as to finally defeating the Motor City Machine Guns for the World Tag Team Championships, so like, it was a great experience. It's been a great experience, it's a great ride right now. I'm enjoying it, I know Ace is enjoying it. The ABC 2023 Title Tour is just beginning, these are only the second belts we picked up on the tour. So it's only the third month out here, it's just our third month out here," he said.
Bey & Austin defeated Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley on the March 2 episode of IMPACT Wrestling.
Bey & Austin are set to defend the IMPACT Tag Team Titles against The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin), Aussie Open (Mark Davis & Kyle Fletcher), and TMDK (Shane Haste & Bad Dude Tito) at IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United on March 30.
