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.
