Rich Swann won the opportunity in a Golden Six Shooter Elimination Match on Thursday, January 26. In that match, Rich defeated five other former World Champions, namely Moose, Rhino, Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, and Sami Callihan.

In the end, Swann pinned Callihan, which resulted in The Design, Deaner, Big Kon, and Angels rushing the ring and attacking Rich before he was rescued by Yuya Uemura, Frankie Kazarian, and Josh Alexander himself.


In October of 2020, Rich Swann realized his dream when he became IMPACT World Champion for the very first time. After losing the title to Kenny Omega and never receiving a rematch, Swann will finally have his opportunity to reclaim his spot at the top of the mountain when he challenges Josh Alexander nearly two years later at No Surrender. It was in the Golden Six Shooter, an elimination match from the mind of Director of Authority Santino Marella, where Swann outlasted five opponents to become #1 Contender. Meanwhile, Josh Alexander is coming off perhaps his most impressive title defense to date, a hard-fought victory over Bully Ray in Full Metal Mayhem. There’s no doubt that Alexander and Swann have the utmost respect for one another. In fact, Alexander joined forces with Swann, Frankie Kazarian and Yuya Uemura to thwart a post-match attack from The Design. But as the old saying goes, there can be no friends when you’re talking about the World Heavyweight Title. Who will leave Las Vegas with IMPACT Wrestling’s top prize?
