Josh Alexander Breaks Long-Standing IMPACT Wrestling Record

Josh Alexander

IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Josh Alexander has broken a huge record in the company as he goes from strength to strength.

Josh Alexander captured the IMPACT World Title for the first time in his career back at Bound For Glory 2021 when he defeated Christian Cage for the gold. However, that title reign lasted a matter of minutes as Alexander was quickly dethroned by Moose.

The Canadian star recaptured IMPACT World Title from Moose at April 2022’s Rebellion show and Josh Alexander has carried the championship ever since.

As of the 4th of January 2023, Alexander’s second reign has lasted 257 days, making him the longest-reigning IMPACT Wrestling World Champion in history. Alexander has overtaken his compatriot Bobby Roode whose own reign lasted 256 days.

In a press release issued by IMPACT Wrestling to celebrate the milestone, former IMPACT World Champion Chris Sabin was quoted as saying that Alexander deserves his record:

“The IMPACT World Championship has a long and prestigious line of champions, and for Josh Alexander to break the record as the longest-reigning champion in company history is not something to be taken lightly. He worked for this, earned it, and deserves it. Congratulations.”

This is not the first time Josh Alexander has broken records in IMPACT Wrestling. Along with AEW star Ethan Page as The North, Alexander held the IMPACT Tag Team Championship for a record-setting 380 days.
