Josh Alexander Lays Down A Challenge To AEW For IMPACT Bound For Glory 2021

Josh Alexander is seeking an inter-promotional match at IMPACT Bound For Glory.

After successfully defending his X Division Championship at Slammiversary in an Ultimate X match, Josh Alexander had a run-in with Kenny Omega on the July 22 episode of IMPACT Wrestling. The Walking Weapon was discussing his victory when Omega bumped into him and took exception with Alexander calling himself the face of the company. Omega then insulted Alexander by calling him "the X Division guy," and saying, "lightweight, right?"

After winning his match against Black Taurus at IMPACT Homecoming, Alexander said that he has beaten the best in AAA, NJPW, and IMPACT, and wants AEW's best come Bound For Glory. He said the following:

"That is another title defence in the books here at IMPACT Homecoming. Black Taurus, you were AAA's best. If we look at my title reign, I've beaten someone from New Japan that's supposedly the best. Someone from AAA who's supposedly the best. I have run through the entire IMPACT X Division. So, maybe I need to look elsewhere. We're talking about all these different promotions coming in at Bound For Glory, well, AEW, yeah, you know who I'm talking about. I'm saying you give me your best and we will see which division matters most in this company."

Bound For Glory is set for October 23 in Las Vegas and has teased that All Elite Wrestling, New Japan Pro Wrestling, and AAA Lucha Libre will all be involved in this year's event.
