Originally published at IMPACT update: Josh Alexander statement, tapings sell out, tag match announced

IMPACT Wrestling has stated that its ‘Sacrifice: Fallout’ tapings in Windsor, Ontario on Saturday are officially a sell-out.

The promotion also announced a notable match on the heels of Friday’s pay-per-view.

During Sacrifice, former NHL star Darren McCarty was put through a table by Bully Ray. McCarty will now team with Tommy Dreamer and Yuya Uemura to take on Bully and the Good Hands.

The match will air on the April 6th episode of IMPACT on AXS.

Meanwhile, Josh Alexander took to Twitter on Saturday to provide an update on his injury.

The 35-year-old had to vacate the IMPACT World Championship ahead of Sacrifice owing to a torn triceps.

He stated:

Thank you to all who reached out. For anyone who’s ever taken the time to support & bought a ticket to see me do what I love. I appreciate all the support more than I can even put into words. It’s time for me to give back. Next time you see me I’ll be better than ever.

I sit here in my 18th year of pro wrestling. The only time I’ve missed in my career was for my second neck surgery. In those 9 months off I had time to reflect and plan to come back and make good on any and all mistakes I ever made. In 7 yrs since coming back from that l’ve left it all in the ring every damn time. Whether 5, 50, 500 or 5000 in attendance you always got everything I had.

I love this sport, this business. Whatever you want to call it. Now out indefinitely with a torn tricep you can bet l’ll make the best of this time off too. I will be back and when I am I’ll be better than ever before.

I’m stepping away from socials to spend some much needed time with my family and to concentrate 100% of my energy on myself. I love you all. It’s never goodbye. It’s just see you later.
