Josh Alexander is ready to get violent at Hard To Kill.
At the upcoming Hard To Kill pay-per-view, Josh Alexander will defend his IMPACT World Championship against Bully Ray in a Full Metal Mayhem match. This will arguably be one of Alexander's biggest tests that he has endured throughout his entire reign, as the 'Walking Weapon' doesn't regularly engage in matches that involve weapons.
In a new interview with Pro Wrestling Torch, Alexander commented on the upcoming bout and noted that fans will see a completely different side of him on Friday, January 13.
“I think all the pieces have been set with the story to kind of get everybody invested in the match at the very least. Like you said, it’s gonna be a different style of match, different kind of opponent. Bully [Ray] has made his entire career out of being the perfectionist of Tables, Ladders, and Chairs and all of that stuff. He has made his career by being good at that stuff and using that stuff. Me, I am known as the wrestling machine and a wrestler’s wrestler. I have not used any of that stuff ever in IMPACT Wrestling, and hardly ever throughout my entire career so it’s gonna be a different type of environment for me. I’m gonna get a chance to show everybody that there’s a different side of me, a little bit more violent and extreme, but I’m excited to show fans something different than they’ve ever seen out of me because I think a lot of times, especially now, you get pigeonholed into your categories. Like this guy’s a technical wrestler, this guy’s a brawler, this guy’s a talker, this guy’s this. I believe I can check every single box in pro wrestling and I’m excited to show everybody that at Hard To Kill.”
