The company has added a Digital Media Championship match to the Countdown to Rebellion portion as Crazzy Steve will defend his title against Laredo Kid.

Additional announcements included Lars Frederiksen appearing in the corner of Spitfire’s Dani Luna & Jody Threat for their Knockouts Tag Title defense against Rosemary & Havok on the Countdown to Rebellion section of the show.

DJ Ashba is set to play the national anthem at the start of Rebellion at The Palms in Las Vegas.

The go-home episode of IMPACT featured an in-ring segment involving Moose and Nic Nemeth before their TNA Championship match on Saturday. Moose stated that Nemeth always “fumbles the ball” when handed it and Nemeth provided a spirited rebuttal.

Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers retained the TNA tag titles by beating the Motor City Machine Guns after Alisha interfered and distracted Alex Shelley on the turnbuckle. It led to Chris Sabin being Irish whipped into his partner and being struck by the Roster Cut and Boston Knee Party before being pinned.
