Chris Sabin emerged victorious in the main event of Impact Wrestling’s 1000th episode, capturing the X-Division Championship from Lio Rush. This victory marks Sabin’s 10th reign as X-Division Champion.
The highly anticipated match between Sabin and Rush took place at the Westchester County Center in White Plains, NY, and it did not disappoint. The two competitors showcased their incredible athleticism and high-flying abilities, keeping the audience on the edge of their seats.
Sabin’s win is particularly significant as he also participated in the main event of Impact Wrestling’s very first episode. Alongside Elix Skipper, Michael Shane, and AJ Styles, Sabin competed in a Fatal 4-Way match to determine the number one contender for the X-Division Championship, then held by Frankie Kazarian.
Throughout his career, Sabin has consistently proven himself as one of the top stars in the X-Division. His 10 title reigns surpass the previous record holders, AJ Styles, Austin Aries, and Jay Lethal, who all have 6 reigns to their names.
Leading up to this match, there was a compelling storyline involving Sabin’s stolen title. At Slammiversary, Sabin was advised by a doctor to withdraw from the match due to a neck injury. However, he chose to compete and lost the title in just over a minute. The victory at Impact 1000 allowed Sabin to reclaim the championship that was rightfully his.
Following the match, the locker room emptied out to celebrate with Sabin in the ring. The atmosphere was electric as everyone recognized the significance of the milestone episode and Sabin’s accomplishment.
Impact Wrestling took to Twitter to share several highlights from the main event, including Rush’s impressive offense and Sabin’s resilience in kicking out of devastating moves. These clips serve as a testament to the incredible athleticism and skill displayed by both competitors.
As the new X-Division Champion, Sabin joins an elite group of wrestlers who have held the prestigious title. His victory further solidifies his status as one of the all-time greats in Impact Wrestling’s X-Division.
