“In light of the restrictions placed upon live events as a result of the coronavirus, IMPACT Wrestling will hold its next major spectacular—IMPACT: Rebellion—on a closed set with only essential personnel in attendance, as per the guidelines put in place by the CDC,” a press release from Impact Wrestling reads.

Impact Wrestling Rebellion

The following matches have been announced for Rebellion:

  • Impact World Championship
    Tessa Blanchard (c) vs Michael Elgin vs Eddie Edwards
  • Knockouts Championship
    Full Metal Mayhem
    Jordynne Grace (c) vs Taya Valkyrie
  • Ken Shamrock vs Sami Callihan
  • Kiera Hogan vs Kylie Rae

Additionally, Willie Mack challenging Ace Austin for the X-Division title will likely occur on the show.

It’s not clear at this time if some Impact wrestlers scheduled for the event will no longer be taking part due to travel restrictions or personal concerns regarding the ongoing pandemic.

Sami Callihan is scheduled to face Ken Shamrock but has expressed concerns about performing during this time. On March 13th, Callihan posted that he will not wrestle during the ongoing crisis, though the Tweets have since been deleted.

Additionally, the Wrestling Observer Newsletter stated that Tessa Blanchard may not be able to participate in the show.

“The word going around which is confirmed is that Blanchard, the Impact men’s world champion, who is based in California, is not leaving the state at this time,” wrote Dave Meltzer.
