Brian Myers believes he’s a world champion in the making.
“I think [the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship is] mine for the taking,” Myers said. “I’ve worked my ass off for the past three years, I don’t think there’s anyone who can say they’ve done what I’ve done in IMPACT in the past three years.”
‘I’ve been the workhorse and backbone of this company for three years, I’ve done everything that’s asked of me to the best of my abilities at the highest level, never disappointed, never missed a beat, represented the company at the highest levels.”
Myers will challenge Alex Shelley for the IMPACT World Championship on the August 24 episode of IMPACT Wrestling. WrestleZone will have coverage of the show as it airs.
Brian Myers signed a contract extension with IMPACT Wrestling in December 2022 which sees him staying put through 2023. Myers told Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated that the contract extension “was an easy decision” for him. He also spoke more about his world title goals and said he wants to prove he’s the total package.
“Hands down, my goal is to become the IMPACT Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion. I’ve been an absolute workhorse for IMPACT Wrestling, and I truly believe this is my time,” he said. “I have my eyes set on Josh Alexander [then the current titleholder]. We’ve been wrestling for years, but this is our chance to do it on IMPACT’s grandest stage. I am ultimately going to be everything IMPACT wishes he was. I’m the complete package, and I’m going to prove that.”
