This week’s IMPACT Wrestling served as the go-home show to Rebellion.
In a preview of their Rebellion rematch, Taylor Wilde went one-on-one with Jessicka. Wilde seemed to control the pacing for a majority of the bout, although Jessicka had her dominating moments. At the end, KiLynn King provided the distraction from the apron, which allowed Wilde to score the win.
Tasha Steelz returned to the ring for the first time since January when she took on Gisele Shaw. It was also their first singles match together, and Shaw did not hold back. This bout received plenty of time, as well as aggressive offense from “The Quintessential Diva.”
Steelz had her moments, but it was when she dodged a running knee from Shaw into the steps on the outside that helped the most. Steelz was able to dropkick the injured knee and cover Shaw for the win.
To close out the show, Mickie James appeared in the empty arena to officially announce that she is not cleared to compete this Sunday. As a result, she is vacating her Knockouts World Championship and Jordynne Grace will face Deonna Purrazzo to crown a new champion at Rebellion.
Below is the updated lineup for Sunday’s Rebellion pay-per-view:
- Knockouts World Championship: Jordynne Grace vs. Deonna Purrazzo
- Knockouts World Tag Team Championship (Countdown Match): The Coven (c) vs. Death Dollz
- Killer Kelly and Masha Slamovich will compete in Hardcore War
