The September 30 episode of IMPACT Wrestling is beginning to take shape.
At last weekend's Victory Road event, Josh Alexander announced that he would be invoking Option C. This meant he would be relinquishing the X Division Title in exchange for an opportunity at the IMPACT World Title. On September 23, he made his decision official and handed his belt over to Scott D'Amore.
The IMPACT Executive announced later on that a tournament to crown a new X Division Champion would commence next week and culminate at Bound For Glory on October 23, the same night Josh Alexander will challenge Christian Cage for the IMPACT World Title. Three triple threat matches will be held over the next month, with the winner of each facing off in a final triple threat for the title.
Next Thursday, September 30, the first qualifier will see Alex Zayne, Trey Miguel, and Laredo Kid do battle.
Also announced for next week's show is a #1 Contenders Match for the Knockouts Tag Team Titles. The Influence (Madison Rayne & Tenille Dashwood) will take on Rachael Ellering and Jordynne Grace. The winner will challenge Decay for the straps at Knockouts Knockdown on October 9th.
Lastly, Eddie Edwards and W. Morrissey will renew hostilities and look to settle things once and for all as they face off in a street match.
The full card can be seen below.
