IMPACT X Division Champion Josh Alexander has issued a challenge to the AEW roster ahead of Bound for Glory in October.
At IMPACT Homecoming, Alexander successfully defended his X Division Title against Black Taurus. Alexander is now seeking a challenger from outside the promotion.
IMPACT has posted a video to Twitter featuring Alexander recapping his title reign so far. Asking AEW to send him their best for Bound for Glory, Alexander said:
“That is another title defence in the books here at IMPACT Homecoming. Black Taurus, you were AAA’s best. If we look at my title reign, I’ve beaten someone from New Japan that’s supposedly the best. Someone from AAA who’s supposedly the best. I have run through the entire IMPACT X Division.
“So, maybe I need to look elsewhere. We’re talking about all these different promotions coming in at Bound For Glory, well, AEW, yeah, you know who I’m talking about. I’m saying you give me your best and we will see which division matters most in this company.”

AEW star Kenny Omega currently holds the IMPACT World Championship. He last defended the gold against Sami Callihan at Slammiversary last month.
IMPACT has teased that AEW, AAA and NJPW stars will all feature at the October 23 Bound For Glory pay-per-view. It was previously reported that the company is open to working with other promotions more frequently.
