Tonight Impact Wrestling present their PPV entitled ‘Rebellion’. The main event of this card pits AEW Champion Kenny Omega against Impact Wrestling’s & TNA Champion Rich Swann in a title vs. title match. One company is going to hold all the gold! But before we delve into that, let’s take a look at what’s happening tonight
Impact Wrestling will present the 2021 Rebellion PPV tonight from Nashville, TN, featuring the following lineup:
*AEW Champion Kenny Omega vs. Impact Wrestling & TNA Champion Rich Swann – Title vs. Title.
*Impact Wrestling X-Division Champion Ace Austin vs. Josh Alexander vs. TJP.

*Impact Wrestling Tag Team Champions FinJuice vs. The Good Brothers.
*Violent by Design vs. James Storm & Chris Sabin & Willie Mack & Eddie Edwards.
*Matt Cardona vs. Brian Myers.
*Last Man Standing: Sami Callihan vs. Trey Miguel.
Now I don’t really follow Impact Wrestling and find it really akward to watch with no crowd noise. There’s doesn’t even need to be physical people but maybe some noise piped in to give the show some atmosphere. I mean even with AEW getting involved, their viewing figured haven’t had a massive spike and that’s probably due to the product being unwatchable in it’s current state.
So those those who follow All Elite Wrestling will know that ‘The Elite’ is back together. The Elite consists of AEW Champion Kenny Omega, AEW Tag Champions The Young Bucks, The Good Brothers and Don Callis. These men are going in and causing a whole lot of trouble wherever they go. But if we look at the potential fueds we have going, it may give an insight into what goes down tonight in the title vs. title match.
The Good Brothers are on a mission to reclaim the Impact Tag Team Championships so a fued in AEW for them in out the question. They are just support acts for the AEW members of The Elite. Now Moxley & Kingston seems to be a tag team and after The Young Bucks turned on Moxley, I can see that The Young Bucks vs. Moxley & Kingston could be an upcoming battle for the titles. That leaves us with Kenny Omega. Kenny is huge a huge star and no offence to Rich Swann, but Swann is not on the same level. I can see the match going at length to give the fans their money worth and build Swann up. If Swann wins, then it makes Kenny look weak and there’s so much talent in AEW that are more credible contenders that it would be the wrong decision. I still think it’s be wrong if Swann won and they went for the rematch at Double or Nothing on May 30th were Omega claims it back. The fued here does nothing for either man. However if Kenny was able to remain, that allows the program with Hangman Page to begin and create a great match at Double or Nothing. If they do go this route with Hangman being a ‘former’ Elite member, where does that leave Impact with no World Champion? Unless they claim only the Impact World Championship is on the line and they are left with TNA Championship. There’s been a lot of chatter about changing the company to TNA so this could be a way to loose a title and have TNA World Championship as the top belt of the company.
