Josh Alexander re-signs with Impact, challenging for World title

The match is set for the Saturday, April 23 pay-per-view.

Josh Alexander has re-signed with Impact Wrestling.

Alexander made his return to Impact at Saturday's Sacrifice event, laying out and challenging Impact World Champion Moose to a title match at the Saturday, April 23 Rebellion pay-per-view, while also announcing that he had re-signed.

Alexander's Impact contract and US work visa had expired.

Alexander had been sent home in storyline by Impact executive Scott D'Amore. After his return and attack on Moose, Alexander stated that he had visited Anthem's headquarters while he was sent home, and secured a multi-year contract with Impact that also guaranteed him the title match. 

Alexander's attack came after Moose successfully defended the Impact World title against Heath in Sacrifice's main event. 

Tickets for Rebellion went on sale on Friday. The event will be held at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York. 

Moose's title defense against Heath was one of six title matches at Sacrifice. Deonna Purrazzo retained the ROH Women's World title with a win over Chelsea Green on the show, plus Trey Miguel retained the X Division title with a victory over Jake Something. 

Three titles changed hands on the show, as Violent By Design won the Impact World Tag Team titles, Tasha Steelz defeated Mickie James to win the Knockouts World title, and The Influence defeated the IInspiration to capture the Knockouts World Tag Team titles.
