The two will be on opposite sides of a six-man tag at tonight’s Sacrifice card in Windsor, Ontario with Maclin teaming with Frankie Kazarian & Rich Swann against KUSHIDA, Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley.
Alexander announced on Busted Open Radio on Friday morning that he will be undergoing surgery for a torn triceps and therefore, was vacating the title after holding the belt for eleven months.
