Impact Wrestling announced Thursday that the Super X-Cup tournament will return at their January 9th Genesis show on Impact Plus with participants and details to be revealed later.

This will be the fourth Super X-Cup in company history, a eight-man tournament featuring X Division wrestlers that dates back to 2003. In the past, they have featured international talent from around the world.

Chris Sabin won the inaugural tournament in 2003 during the TNA era, defeating Juventud Guerrera in the finals. They brought it back in 2005 with Samoa Joe defeating AJ Styles in the finals. It then took a 12 year absence before returning in 2017 as Dezmond Xavier defeated Taiji Ishimori in the finals in an era when Impact and Global Force Wrestling were doing co-promotion.

Impact announced last week that Genesis would return for the first time since 2018. As of now, the only other announced match is Moose vs. Willie Mack in an I Quit match.
