IMPACT Wrestling

On Friday, Frankie Kazarian will officially no longer be the IMPACT X-Division Champion.

IMPACT Wrestling made the official announcement on Monday on their Twitter, stating that Kazarian will be forced to hand over his X-Division title on the promotion’s October 20, 2022 episode that will be aired on AXS TV. However, there is currently nothing known about whether or not Kazarian will be cashing in Option C, as many former champions have done in the past.

If you’re not familiar, Option C allows the X-Division Champion to cash in the strap in order to get a shot for the the company’s World Championship, which currently belongs to Josh Alexander.

Kazarian won the X-Division Championship on October 7, 2022, taking it from Mike Bailey.

The card for Thursday’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling currently stands as this:

October 20, 2022

  • Tag Team Championship: The OGK (Matt Taven & Mike Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis) (c) vs. Heath & Rhino
  • Eric Young vs. Rich Swann
  • Tommy Dreamer & Bully Ray vs. Bullet Club (Chris Bey & Ace Austin)
  • Taylor Wilde vs. Mia Yim
  • Joe Hendry vs. Jason Hotch
  • Frankie Kazarian gives up the X-Division Championship
