IMPACT Wrestling recently announced that their next huge PPV known as Rebellion has now been moved to take place on on Sunday, April 25th from Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee. Rebellion was set to take place the night before, but the promotion made the new date official just several hours ago. The show will be headlined by the Title vs. Title Match between AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann.
IMPACT Wrestling Co-Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore noted in a press release that Sunday night is the traditional night for when major pro wrestling events usually take place, which is why the PPV was moved from a Saturday night to a Sunday night.
Scott D' Amore said, “Sunday night has traditionally been the night for the big wrestling events in the sport’s history – and REBELLION is as huge of an event as any of them.” “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.”
Scott D’Amore is also guaranteeing that the winner of the major main event match will leave Rebellion with both the AEW and IMPACT World Titles.
Scott D' Amore said, “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!.”
Rebellion will also see X-Division Champion Ace Austin defend his title as well as Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo and Knockouts Tag Team Champions Tasha Steelz and Kiera Hogan.
