On July 18, 2020, he would capture the now renamed Impact World Championship for the second time, winning a fatal five-way elimination match at Slammiversary for the vacant title.[125] During this time, he would declare open challenges every week and at the same time, started a feud with the returning Eric Young. In the following weeks, he successfully defended the title in singles bouts against Trey Miguel, Sami Callihan, Brian Myers and Rob Van Dam.[126][127][128] Edwards lost the Impact World Championship to Young on the September 1 episode of Impact!.[129] At Victory Road, Edwards lost to Young in the rematch for the title.[130] On October 24, at Bound for Glory, he lost to Ken Shamrock after tapping out to the ankle lock.[131] At Turning Point, he defeated Daivari.[132] In early December, Eddie reignited his feud with Callihan after being attacked by him and going after his wife Alisha, before fighting him off after taking his bat.[133][134] At Final Resolution, he and Alisha lost an intergender tag team match against Tenille Dashwood and Kaleb with a K, before being attacked by Callihan and getting hit with a piledriver.[135]

On January 16, 2021, at Hard To Kill, Eddie defeated Sami Callihan in a Barbed Wire Massacre match, ending their feud.[136] On February 13, at No Surrender, he and Matt Cardona teamed up and fought Brian Myers and Hernandez in a losing effort.[137] The following month at Sacrifice, Edwards defeated Myers in a Hold Harmless match.[138] In April, he got involved in a feud against Violent By Design (VBD), losing to them in an eight-man Hardcore War match at Hardcore Justice and a regular eight-man tag team match at Rebellion.[139][140] On May 15, at Under Siege, Edwards teamed with FinJuice (David Finlay and Juice Robinson) in a six-man tag team match and defeated Kenny Omega and The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson).[141] On the June 24 episode of Impact!, he teamed with New Japan Pro-Wrestling talent Satoshi Kojima to face VBD members Deaner and Joe Doering for the Impact World Tag Team Championship, but failed to win.[142] In July, Edwards got into a feud with W. Morrissey, losing a singles bout at Slammiversary but defeated him at Homecoming in a Hardcore match.[143][144] On September 18, at Victory Road, he teamed with old rival Callihan to face Morrissey and Moose in a losing effort.[145] In November, Edwards won a three-way match to become the number one contender to Moose's Impact World Championship, but failed to win the title at Turning Point in a Full Metal Mayhem match.[146][147]

Honor No More (2022–present)

At Hard To Kill on January 8, 2022, Edwards, Rich Swann, Willie Mack, Heath and Rhino were attacked by Honor No More, a stable of Ring of Honor (ROH) wrestlers Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, PCO, and Vincent.[148][149][150] In the following weeks on Impact, it was announced that Team Impact (Edwards, Chris Sabin, Rhino, Rich Swann, and Steve Maclin) will face Honor No More at No Surrender.[151][152][153] At No Surrender on February 19, Edwards joined Honor No More by attacking Team Impact, costing them the match, turning heel for the first time in his Impact career.[154][155][156]
