At the beginning of July, Ethan Page and Josh Alexander made Impact Wrestling history by becoming the first team to hold the World Tag Team Championships for a full calendar year, having lifted the gold from current Inner Circle members Ortiz and Santana on 5 July 2019. However, the Canadian duo have now marked another milestone in Impact.
The North are the longest-reigning champions in the company's history, period.
That accolade had previously been held by Taya Valkyrie, whose 377-day reign (401 days in storyline) as Knockouts Champion ended this past January (with a February airdate) at the hands of Jordynne Grace. Page and Alexander are now sitting on 382 days at the time of publication following their win at Slammiversary over Ken Shamrock and Sami Callihan.
For what it's worth, the longest reign for Impact's other two active titles are Bobby Roode's 256-day stint as the World Champion (248 days if we're going be televised dates), and Austin Aries' 301-day run as the X Division Champion.
The North's next defence sees them challenged by The Motor City Machine Guns on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling. Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley returned to the company in the opener of Slammiversary by defeating The Rascalz, before challenging Page and Alexander later in the night.
