The match card for the Impact 1000th episode is getting more and more stacked with each passing day.
Impact is set to have its 1000-episode celebration on September 9, 2023, which will feature Alex Shelley defending the Impact World Title against Trey Miguel. The latter is looking to win his first World Title and this is the first time he will be in the IMPACT World title match since July 2020.
These two have already collided three times in 2022 alone. Trey Miguel won two of these fights whereas Alex Shelley only managed to win one. So, now Alex will have a chance to settle the score.
