IMPACT Wrestling has released a statement with an update on how it will air its Rebellion event which was originally scheduled as a live pay-per-view.
There is also a statement on the promotion’s website, but this updated version we were sent includes details for its UK airing which weren’t present in the original.
The updated statement reads:
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 (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).
Originally planned as a pay-per-view special, Rebellion will now expand into a two-part FREE television event airing April 22 and April 29 on Fight Network UK (in the UK and Ireland) as part of the weekly flagship series IMPACT! It will be repeated on 5Star.
Rebellion will also air for free on AXS TV and Twitch in the U.S. and Fight Network in Canada, along with other 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 PPV event once this crisis has passed.
