Frankie Kazarian returned to Impact Wrestling at last month’s Hard To Kill pay-per-view. At the event, the veteran wrestler cut a promo to announce his return to the Anthem-owned wrestling company. Kazarian has set his sights on the top of Impact mountain and appears to be determined enough to make the climb once again in his career.

At Impact No Surrender, Frankie Kazarian battled Big Kon in an intense, violent matchup. Although Kazarian managed to walk away with the victory, Kon almost had the match won at one point. However, the former Impact X Division Champion Kazarian fought off the interference from Alan Angels and nailed Kon with The Slingshot Cutter to pick up the victory.

Following the match, Frankie Kazarian cut a sensational promo to declare he is coming to reclaim his spot at the top of Impact Wrestling.

“The bigger they come, the harder they fall. That may be true, but tonight when it comes to Kon, the bigger they come the harder they brawl, because he did everything in his power to take my head off and he almost succeeded. He’s bigger than me, stronger than me. He doesn’t have my heart, he doesn’t have my fight. It’s not the size of the dog, it’s the size of the fight that dog brings. And this is just number 1, number 1 of my path to the top…and I’ll take everyone on the Impact roster out to get where I belong.”


In January 2019, Frankie Kazarian was announced as one of the first signees to All Elite Wrestling. Kazarian had reportedly asked for his release from AEW in November 2022, and it was later granted. His last match for AEW took place on the December 26, 2022, episode of AEW Dark: Elevation, losing to Konosuke Takeshita.

Frankie Kazarian was later said to be well-liked by AEW officials and fellow talent, and that he “did business the right way” by losing to Konosuke Takeshita before leaving. It was also reported that Kazarian would be welcomed back to AEW if he chose to return in the future.

Frankie Kazarian ain’t just a decorated Impact champion, but he has also won various titles and accolades throughout his illustrious wrestling career. Now that Kazarian is in his twilight years, it remains to be seen how far he can climb considering he appears to be in incredible shape and fired up to finish his career on the highest possible note.
