News On Why IMPACT Wrestling's Rebellion PPV Changed Nights

As previously reported, IMPACT recently announced that their Rebellion PPV has now been moved to take place on Sunday, April 25th from Skyway Studios in Nashville, Tennessee, but Rebellion was originally set to take place the night before.

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.

In an update, it was reported that Rebellion was moved from April 24th because that is the same night as UFC 261, which features three big title fights headlined by UFC Welterweight Champion Kamaru Usman defending his title against Jorge Masvidal. The event will reportedly also host a full capacity crowd of 15,000 fans.

Rebellion will be headlined by the Title vs. Title Matchup between AEW World Champion Kenny Omega and IMPACT World Champion Rich Swann, with the winner walking out with both titles.
