IMPACT’s Josh Alexander: It Took 15 Years, But I’m Finally A Full-Time Professional Wrestler
Josh Alexander has had an incredible 2021 so far with IMPACT Wrestling. Defending the X-Division Championship against all comers. His career is on the rise to the point where professional wrestling is now his full-time job.
This afternoon on Twitter, Josh Alexander took to social media to reveal he’s quitting his day job to become a full-time professional wrestler:
“I’ve dreamt of this day for longer than I can remember. A day when I don’t need to wake up at 3 am to work out before heading to the job site. A day when I don’t rush from my red-eye home to a shift. A day where I can finally have time to truly dedicate myself to this business that I love.
“It’s a stressful thought running around without that security blanket of guaranteed income. But risks often produce the biggest rewards. I’ve often wondered what I’d be able to do as a wrestler when I don’t have to work 40+ hours a week on top of the training & travel. It’s a scary thought. I guess now we will finally get to find out.
“None of this is possible without the support of the fans. Without Impact Wrestling giving me countless opportunities to show I’m a world-class wrestler. Without all the independent promotions that book me & give me time to grow my brand & do what I love. I can’t thank all of you enough. I’ll continue to show my gratitude by giving everything I have every time I step in a ring, no matter where or for whom,” Josh Alexander tweeted.
