Josh Alexander is staying with TNA, but he reportedly didn’t want them to trigger his extension.

Former two-time TNA World Champion Josh Alexander is one of the most accomplished stars in company history. Alongside the world title, he is a former two-time World Tag Team Champion, and had an X-Division reign in 2021 before invoking ‘Option C’ to relinquish the gold and go after the top title.

Now, we know that Josh Alexander will be staying with TNA going forward, as the company took to X to confirm Sports Illustrated’s report that they have triggered a clause to extend Alexander’s contract by another year.

However, in an update from Fightful Select, it’s been reported that Alexander had actually asked TNA to not trigger the extension and add a year to his contract as he wanted to enter free agency in order to evaluate his options. It’s said that he was open to re-negotiating with TNA, and that there aren’t any issues between the two sides when it comes to working together across his extra year.

“Alexander had requested that TNA not pick up his option. He was open to negotiating a new deal, but he wanted to survey the landscape if possible. However, TNA did exercise the option, and there are no concerns from the company about Alexander meeting his contractual obligations and working hard while he’s there.

It’s believed that Alexander’s contract would have been up on February 14, an expiry date which has now been pushed back. While exact terms of the updated deal weren’t revealed, it’s clear that the star won’t be departing TNA for at least another 12 months.

As always, we’ll aim to provide any further updates on Josh Alexander’s contract extension with TNA as soon as we hear more.
