Christian Cage & Josh Alexander Segment
Josh Alexander: In two days time, I step foot in this ring at the main event of Bound For Glory and I challenge for that IMPACT Wrestling World Championship. A lot of people have been calling this a risk. Yes, I risked my X-Division Championship for this opportunity, but what’s a risk? What is a risk? When six years ago, I thought I was done with professional wrestling. I thought I would never take another risk again. I thought I was gonna live a safe life, going to a construction site everyday to put food on the table for my family.
And through the grace of god or whatever you may believe, I was given an opportunity to come back to this business that I love. And I have scraped, and I have clawed, and I have taken every single risk I could along the way for every opportunity to be standing where I am, right now. The number one contender for the World Championship. I will take risk all day long. There is one risk, one risk I’m not willing to take, I will not risk sending a message to my sons at home that they have a dream, they do anything but chase it with everything they have. So my boys could watch me this Saturday night challenge for that World Championship and bring it home, because every risk yields the biggest rewards.
Christian Cage: So here we are, just two days away from Bound For Glory. Now, Josh, I understand the enormity of this moment. I have been in this moment, I have been in this spot many times before. I understand what it’s like to be on the biggest stage because I have been on the biggest stages in this industry. I wrestled for and won world championships. I have been in legendary matches that PPV’s are named after. I understand what it’s like to be in this moment. But, Josh, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret, what it comes down to is pressure and how you deal with it.
If you could keep your emotions in check and deal with that pressure, because, you know, pressure, pressure is a funny fickle thing, Josh. Some people, they crack under pressure, they break and they fade into oblivion, while others like me thrive under pressure and win world championships. Now, Josh, for as talented as you are, for as how hungry as you are, and believe or not, for as much as I respect you, you haven’t done anything over these last few weeks that makes me think you have it in you.
Josh Alexander: Christian, I hear your criticisms and it sounds all too familiar. You think I can’t handle the pressure. I have critics, I’ve heard what they’ve said over the years. He’s just a tag team guy, someone who isn’t capable of rising to the occasion, does this all sound familiar? Because it put a chip on my shoulder, a mile wide. Just like Christian Cage had a chip on his shoulder in 2005, when he came to IMPACT Wrestling in the first place, am I right? See, you had something to prove back then. You wanted to prove that you could be a main eventer, a world champion. That’s the shoes I’m standing in, right now, so it’s all too familiar.
You want to talk about how you came back to this business to help the next generation. As long as you’re cashing a check from a billionaire that owns a different company, you will never be the face of IMPACT Wrestling. You want to talk about handling the pressure. Understand this, at Bound For Glory, I bring that IMPACT Wrestling World Championship home where it belongs. And I’m gonna slam that forbidden door in your face and send shockwaves through this whole business, to let everybody know, that if they dare step through it, the man standing on the other side, The Walking Weapon, The IMPACT Wrestling World Champion, the best wrestler in the world will be standing there waiting for them.
Christian Cage: Josh, you’re not even the best wrestler from Canada. In fact, you’re not the best wrestler standing in this ring, right now. I am the best wrestler in the world. The IMPACT World Champion. And after Bound For Glory, in two days, nothing changes, hashtag, #AndStill.
Josh Alexander: You think that pissing me off is gonna work in your advantage, Christian? Well, let’s see how that turns out.
Cage and Alexander gets into a massive pull apart brawl to close the show.
