The Rascalz(De, Wentz &Trey) v. Moose and The North(Ethan Page & Josh Alexander)

On this Friday’s episode of Impact, we witnessed Moose recruit the recently debuted team of Ethan Page and Josh Alexander to execute an attack on the Rascalz in the backstage area. It appears Moose is still upset that the Rascalz find his rejection by female talent funny. For the last few weeks, Moose has taken on each of the members of the Rascalz in one on one confrontations. Now, it seems, he is seeking to shut down Wentz, Dez, and Trey for good in a 6 man tag match alongside some friends of his own.

Tessa Blanchard v. Gail Kim

Gail Kim returns to the ring from retirement to try and tame the beast that is Tessa Blanchard. Since her retirement, Gail has worked in her role as a backstage agent. The egotistical and brash newcomer Tessa Blanchard brought her back by going on a rampage. Since losing her Knockouts title Taya Valkyrie and being suspended for her actions Tessa has gone an absolute tear through the Knockouts division. Gail stepped in to put end to the young powerhouse’s reign of terror. Nothing has halted Tessa in her pursuit of reclaiming the title. Now she looks to end the career of Gail Kim permanently this Sunday. Will Gail be able to stop her or will Tessa Blanchard prove diamonds are forever?

IMPACT X DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP
Rich Swann (c) vs. Sami Callihan

This Sunday could witness the final chapter of the Saga of Ohio vs Rich Swann. For months we’ve watched as Sami Callihan has tried everything to first recruit then destroy his old running buddy Rich Swann. Their past has put them on a collision course. Sami Callihan has taunted and tormented his opponent and his partner Willie Mack. What began as a, somewhat, friendly rivalry in which Callihan was auditioning the X-Division champion for his cult-like O.V.E. stable. When his attempts to recruit Swann failed he sought to destroy everything Rich Swann. This Sunday he seeks to wrest the X-Division Championship from his former road brother. Will Rich Swann withstand the barrage of everything? EVERYTHING!?

IMPACT WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP (FULL METAL MAYHEM MATCH)
Pentagon Jr. and Fenix (c) vs. LAX (Santana and Ortiz)

The Lucha Bros. once again take on Konan’s boys Santana and Ortiz for their tag straps this Sunday seeking championship gold and retribution against their familia. This rivalry has been in red hot since their first confrontation several months ago. Both teams have been in rare form heading into this match with more at stake than championships. The teams have traded wins before Pentagon and Fenix had a change in attitude once they secured the titles, showing a lack of respect for LAX. The Lucha Bros took their titles, the LAX have taken the brothers masks. They’ve had breathtaking, spectacular matches in the past.  What more are these two teams willing to do to prove they are the superior team and Konan favorite sons at Rebellion?

IMPACT KNOCKOUTS CHAMPIONSHIP
Taya Valkyrie (c) vs. Jordynne Grace

Taya Valkyrie looks to retain her Knockouts Title against Jordynne Grace in a return match from Against All Odds. Grace has been hot on the trail of the Knockouts title holder since becoming No.1 contender and beating champion Taya Valkyrie by count out. The powerhouse of the Knockouts has been on the roll of her career since her debut, stacking up wins against all comers. This Sunday she looks to, once again, take on her greatest challenge in Taya Valkyrie. This time can she secure the pinfall or submission victory? Will she be able to take the Knockout Championship from Wera Loca at Rebellion?

IMPACT WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
Johnny Impact (c) vs. Brian Cage
Special Guest Referee: Lance Storm

In the Rebellion main event, we will witness the culmination of the feud between Impact World Champion Johnny Impact and “The Machine” Brian Cage. This match comes on the heels of a devastating betrayal by Johnny Impact on longtime friend Brian Cage. The Machine has chased the World Championship since using his “option C”, cashing in the X-Division title for a one on one with champion Johnny Impact.

Since that loss, he has helped keep Johnny safe and clear from all challengers so he might get a rematch. Johnny then promised his friend a title match that never came to be as Johnny turned on Cage enlisting the help of Killer Kross who smashed a cinder block into the Machine’s skull and recruiting senior official Johnny Bravo to do his bidding. A frustrated Cage, worried about a fair match against the champion, raged against Impact management’s Don Callis and Scott D’amore. D’amore quickly recruited a nearby Lance Storm to referee what is sure to be a brutal affair between champion and challenger. Will Cage once again go to Slamtown or will the Machine finally terminate his opponent? Find out this Sunday live, only on pay per view!
