HISTORIC IMPACT WRESTLING PAY-PER-VIEW TO TAKE PLACE ON TRADITIONAL NIGHT FOR MAJOR WRESTLING EVENTS
The countdown is on ….
The highly-anticipated REBELLION(C) Pay-Per-View – featuring the groundbreaking Title vs. Title main event pitting IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann vs. All Elite Wrestling (AEW) World Champion Kenny Omega – will now be held on Sunday, April 25.
Medd in the Morning’s Lee Medd said ” The past few Impact Pay Per Views have taken place on a Saturday night and that’s been great as I haven’t had to do a show the next morning , but there is something special about a Sunday night event. There have been some MASSIVE wrestling events that happened on Sunday nights and with a headline match of this importance I’m glad Impact executives have decided to put Rebellion on Sunday night.
IMPACT Wrestling Executive Vice-President Scott D’Amore. “Swann vs. Omega, champion vs. champion, title vs. title is a happening that every wrestling fan will want to witness … it just feels right that REBELLION take place on Sunday.”
D’Amore took the opportunity to underline what is at stake at REBELLION. “This is no gimmick, no sleight of hand. Wrestling fans can take me at my word – either Rich Swann or Kenny Omega will walk out of REBELLION as both the IMPACT and AEW World Champion. History will happen at REBELLION!”
The April 25 PPV card continues to take shape, with the IMPACT World Tag Team Championship match at REBELLION also taking on a distinctive promotion vs. promotion flavor. Newly-crowned IMPACT Tag Team Champions FinJuice, the duo of David Finlay and Juice Robinson who are currently signed to New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW), will return stateside to defend against The Good Brothers, Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson.
The X-Division Championship, now held by two-time title-holder Ace Austin, also will be on the line at REBELLION, as well as Deonna Purrazzo’s Knockouts Championship and the Knockouts Tag Team Titles, currently held by Fire ‘N Flava.
“REBELLION is going to be stacked,” D’Amore added.
Alive 107.3’s Lee Medd said “The REBELLION festivities kick off on Sunday afternoon with the Rebellion CELL-ebration, IMPACT’s two-hour virtual fan-fest, which starts at 4pm UK time, with appearances by numerous IMPACT stars, such as The Good Brothers, Deonna Purrazzo, Ace Austin and many others – and it will be participating fans who get the chance to ask questions of the wrestling stars. This will be my third Cell-ebration event and it’s my chance to be a fan again, the chance for me to get excited and chat with the superstars of IMPACT Wrestling not as Lee the radio presenter, but as Lee the wrestling fan and it’s an experience like no other.
I’d encourage any fan that wants to get a sneaky peak behind the curtain to sign up for REBELLION CELL-ebration, attendees will receive numerous perks for participating, such as the official PPV t-shirt, autographs and the first 50 fans to register will receive a unique Swag Bag of IMPACT-branded items.
