Eric Young said: “[Josh Alexander] is in a long, long list of people that have the respect of me and have the respect of wrestling fans cause they earned it the hard way.”
The former two-time world champion for the promotion was asked how the current IMPACT World Champion compares to his predecessors.
Eric Young went on to say that former holders of that same belt are a “who’s who of pro wrestling”.
“To be a person on that list is something that can never be taken away from me, and is something I take very seriously, and I know that Josh would say the same thing.
“He’s in the stage of wanting to cement his legacy. I don’t think I’m going to end that – but my plan is to leave Slammiversary as the world heavyweight champion.”
