IMPACT Wrestling’s Rebellion PPV Now Airing As Two-Night Televised Event
IMPACT Wrestling just announced their updated plans for their Rebellion pay-per-view event, revealing the show will now air over the course of two nights in April.
IMPACT posted the following, confirming the event will take place on a closed set with essential personnel only due to current CDC guidelines for the COVID-19 outbreak:
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.

IMPACT taped several episodes worth of content last week at an undisclosed location, with Tommy Dreamer later confirming plans to tape about two months of shows in three days, noting it “would be very, very taxing.” PWInsider.com also reported IMPACT would be taping in Nashville at Skyway Studios.
