A first-time one-on-one match. 

Former IMPACT World Champion Josh Alexander had to relinquish his title due to a triceps injury that required surgery.

Alexander was scheduled to defend against KUSHIDA at IMPACT x NJPW Multiverse United but Lio Rush is now going to be taking that vacant slot against KUSHIDA. 

At IMPACT’s Rebellion pay-per-view in April, KUSHIDA and Steve Maclin are going to clash for the vacant IMPACT World Championship. 

Rush is coming off a title opportunity of his own as he challenged Hiromu Takahashi for the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title on the New Japan Cup Final show.
