After Josh Alexander defeated Kazarian, Bully Ray made his way down to the ring. He congratulated Josh on an amazing match and say THAT match is what professional wrestling is all about. He also stated that he told everybody from the beginning that he’s call his shot with the trophy for a World Title shot to Josh’s face, and challenged him for the IMPACT World Title at Hard to Kill. Josh accepted the challenge.
Hard to Kill will be Friday January 13th at Center Stage in Atlanta, Georgia.
Bully Ray returned to IMPACT at Bound for Glory when he was a surprise entrant in the Call Your Shot Gauntlet Match, which he ended up winning.
Almost everybody on the roster who’s previously worked with Bully has told Josh not to trust him. Bully stated from the beginning that he wants to win the title the right way, by letting Josh know he’d be cashing in and challenging.
Josh defeated Eddie Edwards at Bound for Glory, and then defeated AEW star Frankie Kazarian tonight to retain the IMPACT World Title.
After the match was agreed to, Josh was on the outside of the ring about to celebrate with his family that was at ringside. Bully interrupted the celebration in vicious fashion, beating Josh down, grabbing his wife and threatening to harm her if Josh didn’t hand over the World Title belt. Josh handed it over to save his wife.
Bully Ray walked away with the IMPACT World Title belt. Will he win it legitimately at Hard To Kill?
