A whole new set of eyes has been on Impact Wrestling since they began to share talent with AEW in January this year. This project has been dubbed the opening of ‘The Forbidden Door’ and has also included talent from NJPW working with both companies to the delight of fans.
The next step takes place in the main event of Rebellion when we will see, for the first time ever, the Impact Wrestling and All Elite Wrestling World Heavyweight Champions face off in a champion vs. champion, winner takes all bout.
Impact Champion Rich Swann will play host to AEW kingpin Kenny Omega with one man set to be declared the undisputed champion of both brands at the bout’s conclusion. To add even more flavour to arguably the most intriguing wrestling match of 2021, the bout will be refereed by AEW official Aubrey Edwards and guest play by play will be provided by one of the most respected names in combat sports broadcast, Mauro Ranello.
This will not be the only inter-promotional match on the card as NJPW’s Fin-Juice (David Finlay and Juice Robinson) will defend their Impact Wrestling World Tag Team Championship against The Good Brothers (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson).
In other championship matches, Deonna Purrazzo will put her Knockouts Championship on the line against Tenille Dashwood and Knockouts Tag Team Champions Fire N Flava (Keira Hogan and Tasha Steelz) will defend against Jordynne Grace and a mystery partner.
The final championship match on the card will see the X-Division Championship on the line as titleholder Ace Austin defends against Josh Alexander and TJP.
