NJPW star Hiromu Takahashi is looking for gold in Impact Wrestling.

Impact X-Division Champion Ace Austin is currently competing in the New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s Best of the Super Juniors tournament. During the fifth night of the BOTSJ tournament, Takahashi defeated Austin.

After the match, Austin tweeted, “We will meet again @TIMEBOMB1105″

Takahashi responded, “A man never breaks his word, right? I want your belt!”

Impact EVP Scott D’Amore offered a title match to the NJPW star in the near future.

“Well @TIMEBOMB1105, there is an open door for you to walk through, wrote D’Amore.  “Come step in an @IMPACTWRESTLING ring anytime. Your title shot awaits…”

NJPW stars Sanada and Taiji Ishimori are past X-Division champions. Sanada was champion from March 2, 2014, to June 20, 2014, while Taiji Ishimori was champion from November 9, 2017, to January 12, 2018.
