Josh Alexander will be out of action after revealing he suffered a torn triceps.

The IMPACT performer appeared on Busted Open Radio on SiriusXM to reveal the injury, which will require surgery, and therefore, has been forced to vacate the IMPACT Championship.

Alexander is off tonight’s Sacrifice card where he was set to team with Frankie Kazarian and Rich Swann against KUSHIDA & The Motor City Machine Guns in Windsor, Ontario.

Steve Maclin has been inserted into the six-man tag to team with Kazarian and Swann on tonight’s Sacrifice card.

Alexander will also miss the upcoming WrestleMania Week events in California and next month’s Rebellion pay-per-view where he was scheduled to defend the title against Steve Maclin.

Alexander is the longest-reigning IMPACT Champion after winning the title for a second time last April.

We wish Alexander the best and as quick a recovery process as possible given the severity of the injury.
