Steve Maclin Discusses The Mission Of Becoming Impact World Champion


Steve Maclin meets Kushida in a match to crown a new Impact Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion tonight at Impact Wrestling’s Rebellion pay-per-view event.

Last month, Josh Alexander was forced to vacate the belt due to an injury.


In a new interview with WrestleZone, Maclin spoke about the match. He said,

“It’s one of those things where I’ve been telling everybody that it could have been Kushida all along as well. Him and Josh were [going to] wrestle at Multiverse, you don’t know who’s going to come out of that. Obviously with Kushida holding on to the hoverboard lock on Josh for a long while at Battle Of The Valley, it obviously probably aided in tearing his triceps. We don’t know, but what can you do? Mission stays the same, becoming the IMPACT World Champion for me. Opponent is different, so I’ve been prepping for that and I got to witness it firsthand at Sacrifice with Kushida. I know a lot of people said I tapped out, but I did it willingly and I expressed that the other night. Everybody’s tried to express to me that I tapped out but I’ve tried to express to them that I did it on purpose because why would I be a prideful idiot when nothing is on the line, when I can go into IMPACT Rebellion 100% for the world title.”
