Impact Wrestling World Champion had an offer from All Elite Wrestling before re-signing with his current employers earlier this year.

He revealed as much during an interview with Chris Van Vliet (h/t Wrestling Observer)

“It was definitely on the table and it was definitely a thought and all this other stuff. But I wouldn't say it was too close because with all the stuff that had been happening and IMPACT I really felt like [I should stay]. And like also happening in AEW, with me watching every week, I still watch everything to this day. But I just like for me as a pro-wrestler, my fulfilment of what I do is to go out there and wrestle and show what I can do. I think my benefit is bell to bell, that is where I will gain notoriety, that is where I will show my worth in the pro-wrestling scene. And at the time watching AEW, it didn't look like a lot of people were getting opportunities to do that stuff outside of like the top 20 people that were on the roster. You'd see people shuffle in and out and shuffle in and out it out there. They get their runs for a few weeks, and they go back to shorter matches on AEW Dark and it was just IMPACT has been so good to me. [Impact] were the first company that gave me an opportunity and got me that visa, did this stuff and like it's all been roses since I got there man.”

Alexander has been Impact Champion for 229 days as of writing, having defeated former Champion Moose for the gold at Rebellion in April of this year. It's his second reign with the gold having previously dethroned Christian Cage.
