Impact Wrestling Rebellion will air on AXS TV

By Jason Powell, ProWrestling.net Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Impact Wrestling issued the following press release on Monday to announce that the Rebellion pay-per-view will now be a two-part edition of the Impact Wrestling television show.

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.

Originally planned as a pay-per-view special, Rebellion will now expand into a two-part television event airing April 21 and April 28 as part of the weekly flagship series IMPACT!

Rebellion will air for free on AXS TV and Twitch in the U.S. and Fight Network in Canada, along with international IMPACT! broadcast partners.

The safety of IMPACT’s wrestlers, personnel, and fans is of the utmost importance, and while it is with some disappointment that we must scale back our original plans for the event, we are proud to have the opportunity to provide our loyal and passionate audience with some much-needed entertainment during this time. We look forward to producing a proper pay-per-view event once this crisis has passed.

Powell’s POV: Impact held marathon tapings at a closed set in Nashville, Tennessee at Skyline Studios. I like the call to run Rebellion over two weeks of Impact rather than to attempt to market the empty arena event as a pay-per-view.

  1. I love Impact! wrestling its not cool to say that but i just do. Having said this i am heart broken that they have gone down this route rather than interviews and reruns of matches route. I think ROH and NJPW have got it right to not film new matches and hope they dont give in and do this as well.
    I hope when they are cleared to run matches with a crowd again they stick to this format and do Bound for Glory as a season finale to an extended taping. I just think this is the new normal and shows will be aloud a live audience then not allowed one then allowed one again before this is over. Oh and Texas and Canada seem to provide the best crowds for Impact the chicago crowd ruined Bound for Glory this year. So you know do Bound for Glory in texas and slamaversary in cananda.
