Mike Bailey Targets Double-Championship in IMPACT

"Speedball" Mike Bailey, a renowned name in the IMPACT Wrestling arena, has recently set his sights on becoming a double-champion. In a compelling conversation on the Battleground podcast, Bailey laid out his ambitious roadmap to conquer not just one but multiple championships in IMPACT.

Bailey's top priority is to emerge victorious in the Best of the Super Juniors tournament in New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). He firmly believes that winning this prestigious event can make a significant statement in the wrestling community.

"Step one is to win the Best of Super Juniors tournament," Bailey explained. He added that he keenly observes the X-Division Championship scene, where a high-stakes match between Trey Miguel and Chris Sabin is about to take place at Under Siege.

"I'm looking at Steve Maclin, of course, I am, but I am also keeping an eye on the X-Division Championship scene. I like to keep my options open. I like to stay informed and will find my rightful place wherever I best fit."

Bailey's Quest for Double-Championship

The audacious wrestler clarified that he isn't content with holding just one title in IMPACT.

Bailey intends to create history by simultaneously having the world title and the X-Division title - a feat never before accomplished. "My goal is both. I want to be both the X-Division and World Champion simultaneously. Maybe even the tag team champion," Bailey declared.

He further mentioned, "I'm a 'shoot for the moon, and even if you miss, you'll land among the stars' kind of guy. I want to achieve great things, and it hasn't been done before. I would be thrilled to be the first one to do it." Bailey reminded me of his triumph when he won the X-Division Championship in an Ultimate X Match at the 20th Slammiversary, saying, "It seemed impossible, yet I did it." This revelation signals an exciting time ahead for fans of IMPACT wrestling.

As Bailey sets out on this ambitious journey, the wrestling community will watch closely, eager to witness whether he can turn his dreams into reality.
