Days after his AEW contract expired, Alan Angels made his surprise debut at Saturday's Impact Wrestling TV taping in Atlanta, Georgia.

Angels answered X-Division Champion "Speedball" Mike Bailey's open challenge which he threw out at Friday's Against All Odds.

Saturday's taping will cover the next two weeks of TV and it's unknown at this time which date this match will air. It's also unknown whether Angels has signed a contract or if this is a one-off appearance for the Georgia native.

The 24-year-old thanked AEW for the opportunity in a Thursday statement and said he feels his career is just beginning. He had been in the company for two years, debuting at their Norcross, Georgia, pandemic era tapings. It was there he first made a name for himself in a competitive match with Kenny Omega.

It will b the second title defense from Bailey who successfully defended against former champion Trey Miguel Friday.
