This week's Impact Wrestling will feature the debut of a former member of the AEW roster.
Impact Wrestling has announced that Alan Angels will debut on Impact this Thursday, challenging "Speedball" Mike Bailey for the X-Division Championship. The match was filmed at Impact's television tapings in Atlanta this past Saturday.
It was revealed near the end of last month that Angels' AEW contract had expired. He was part of The Dark Order while with the promotion.
Angels issued a statement confirming his departure from AEW on June 30. Angels promised to "make as many towns as [he] can, meet as many fans as [he] can and wrestle as much as [he] can" until he's considered one of the best wrestlers going today.
Bailey won the X-Division Championship in an Ultimate X match at Slammiversary last month.
Deonna Purrazzo vs. Mia Yim and Laredo Kid vs. Trey Miguel have also been announced for this week's Impact. It's the first episode of the show since last Friday's Against All Odds Impact Plus special.
