Josh Alexander returned to IMPACT Wrestling at Sacrifice with a new multi-year contract in hand.
At the culmination of IMPACT Wrestling’s Sacrifice event, Josh Alexander made a surprise return to the Anthem-helmed promotion, laying out Moose after ‘The Wrestling God’ had successfully defended the World Championship against Heath. In Alexander’s possession was a contract to face Moose in the Rebellion main event, as well as a new contract with IMPACT that spans several years.
Alexander’s last appearance on IMPACT programming came on the 10 February broadcast of their weekly AXS TV show, where he was sent home by IMPACT Executive Vice President, Scott D’Amore. Alexander had been scheduled to represent IMPACT Wrestling against Honor No More at the No Surrender event the following week.
In reality, his IMPACT contract was due for renewal, and so this allowed IMPACT management and Josh Alexander to come to terms on a new agreement. As of this writing, the exact length of Josh’s deal is unknown, though “multi-year” would suggest he’s signed until at least 2024.

First signing with IMPACT Wrestling in 2019, Josh Alexander found success early on, embarking on a 380-day reign – the longest in the title’s history – as the World Tag Team Champions with Ethan Page in The North. They dropped the titles to The Motor City Machine Guns on the first IMPACT post-Slammiversary 2020, though regained them for a short while that October.
Over the past year, Josh Alexander has risen to become a main event-calibre IMPACT star in the absence of Page, who departed for All Elite Wrestling. A lengthy run as X Division Champion led him to capture the World Championship from Christian Cage in the Bound For Glory main event, though he dropped this minutes later to Moose. The rivalry has been ongoing ever since.
