Impact Wrestling Redemption will be Impact Wrestling‘s first pay-per-view event of 2018 and will take place on Sunday, April 22 in the Impact Zone, in Orlando, Florida.
The promotion took to Twitter earlier today to announce a sixth match for the event.

The main attraction of this match is arguably Brian Cage, who recently defeated Bobby Lashley, (who made his WWE return on last Monday’s Raw), on two back-to-back episodes of IMPACT!.
DJZ will make only his second appearance for Impact for over a year, having also performed at the Impact vs. Lucha Underground event last weekend; a show which will likely be remembered as the reason Alberto El Patrón (Alberto Del Rio in WWE) was fired from Impact Wrestling for no-showing the event.
El Patrón was initially scheduled to challenge Austin Aries for the Impact World Championship at Redemption, but of course, the main event had to be changed, and Aries will now defend the title against Pentagon Jr. and Fenix in a triple threat match.
El Patrón will make a second return to AAA at their Triplemanía XXVI event on August 25, 2018.
Here is the full list of confirmed matches for Impact Wrestling Redemption:
- Austin Aries (c) vs. Pentagon Jr. vs. Fenix – Impact World Championship
- Allie (c) vs. Su Yung – Impact Knockouts Championship
- Eddie Edwards, Moose & Tommy Dreamer vs. Sami Callihan & OVE (Dave & Jake Crist) – ‘House of Hardcore’ match
- Matt Sydal (c) vs. Petey Williams – Impact X Division Championship
- Impact Tag Team Championships
- Brian Cage vs. Taiji Ishimori vs. DJ Z vs. El Hijo Del Fantasma vs. Trevor Lee vs. Dezmond Xavier
The next match will be announced on Monday, 16 April.
