IMPACT Wrestling World Champion Josh Alexander was involved in a car accident the day before defending his strap against Tomohiro Ishii at the Under Siege pay-per-view.

Alexander tweeted the following late on Friday evening, revealing, fortunately, that everyone was fine, having been saved by a matter of “seconds or inches”:

A scary situation for sure, though the good news is that everybody involved was unscathed.

Josh went on to wrestle New Japan Pro Wrestling cult favourite and all-around hard-hitter Ishii at Under Siege. If Alexander was shaken up by the accident, it didn’t reflect in his performance, as he engaged in a spirited 23-minute main event that concluded with him putting Ishii away to successfully retain the IMPACT World Championship.

This was Alexander’s second defence of the IMPACT title since defeating Moose to claim it at Rebellion 2022 on 23 April. His title win was followed by an immediate rematch with Moose on IMPACT’s 28 April episode, after which Ishii emerged as the next challenger, going face-to-face with Alexander to set the bout up.

Alexander, 34, has been with IMPACT since 2018, signing his first full-time deal there in February 2019.
