Impact Wrestling World Champion Josh Alexander has come a long way since his days as one-half of The North. He was quite a successful tag team wrestler which is why when Ethan Page left Impact Wrestling for AEW, many fans believed that would be the end of Josh Alexander.
However, that wasn’t the case as Josh Alexander was pushed as a singles wrestler almost immediately which resulted in him quickly winning the X-Division Championship and cashing that in to become the Impact World Champion.
In a recent interview with Brian Hebner’s Refin It Up podcast, Josh Alexander stated that while he had opportunities to go elsewhere, he didn’t because he had unfinished business in Impact Wrestling.
“I had opportunities to go elsewhere 100%. If I would have not agreed to a new deal or something like that, but like it didn’t really cross my mind because I felt like I had unfinished business here at Impact. I felt like there was so much more I could do and offer and show not just Impact, but the wrestling industry as a whole, all these other companies, what I’m capable of.”
“Impact was the first company that gave me an opportunity. Scott D’Amore called me up and offered me a contract. They were the company that gave me an opportunity. That’s all you can ask for as a professional wrestler.”
“Since I got here, it’s been nothing but roses for me man. I was here for like two months and then I was tag team champion. I lost the tag belt and I was without a belt for three months and I was X-Division champion. I never lost that belt. I won the world championship. Six months later, I won the world championship again. For me, the thing that I get out of wrestling, it’s not winning all the time, it’s not the championships, it’s the challenges. I want to be challenged. I want to feel like I’m in an uncomfortable position where I have to better myself and improve. It’s been nothing but that the entire time I’ve been here and that’s all I could ask for so I’m very happy to say.”
During the interview, Josh Alexander also revealed when he felt like Impact Wrestling felt he could be their World Champion as well as the face of the company. He also talked bout his condition after his Bound for Glory match against Eddie Edwards.
