Gia Miller is sitting with Matt Cardona. She asks about his IMPACT tenure so far and he says the company is what he loves about pro wrestling and sees all the talent here he can’t wait to compete with. He gets asked about his social media presence and says how he always has to stay on it. He loves pro wrestling and you have to love it for the good times and the bad times. Gia then asks him about Brian Myers. He recounts their history, but he makes clear he didn’t come here to fight him, but it’s time to put up or shut up. The Major Brothers explode!
Trey Miguel is angry and in enters XXXL. Dreamer jokes about having an exploding barbed wire match. Larry D and Acey basically walk off as Dreamer asks Trey if he’s okay. Trey wants to fight Acey tonight. Tommy says go talk to Scott D’Amore but he wants to talk about Hardcore Justice. Trey doesn’t care about that and wants to break Acey’s neck. Tommy warns him not to go down that violent path.

Backstage, Gia Miller aims to interview Kenny Omega as he walks out of his dressing room with Don Callis. That ain’t happening as he and Kenny plan to address it all in the ring after break.
The Two Tonys are stanging backstage with Don Callis and Kenny Omega for a paid ad. Schiavone previews tomorrow’s Dynamite before Khan says they invited Kenny and Don to talk about the huge implications to take place tomorrow night if Matt Sydal defeats Omega in the main event tomorrow. Kenny isn’t pleased and he and Don eventually walk off as Schiavone runs down the rest of the card.
Back from break, The Good Brothers try to knock on Kenny’s door, but he’s clearly not there and they walk off.
Kenny and Don walkout. Kenny isn’t happy with the operation in the IMPACT Zone. Don says Kenny can fire whoever he wants. Don says soon this will be Kenny’s home as he wins the IMPACT World Championship. Don recounts his interaction with Rich Swann last week. He’s a great guy and very talented, but the one thing he can never get out of his head is the One-Winged Angel! Kenny relishes in that. Forever it will run in Rich’s head. Don says he can prepare all he wants, but no one has kicked out of that move. Kenny thinks he needs more gold. Don runs down a list of legendary names who Kenny is bigger than and Omega adds Ibushi. Don says he’s prepared to do something. That’s anything it takes to preserve the legacy of Omega. Callis is prepared to suck every ounce of blood out of this company for the sake of Kenny. That’s gonna start with Rich Swann. Don has put together a tribute to Kenny’s One-Winged Angel. HE plays it. Kenny likes it. He said ever since he came to IMPACT, there was this encompassing fear. There is no reason for him to be there aside from what Rich is currently holding. Unfortunately for him, Swann will be just a footnote in a history-making moment. He doesn’t recall any of Swann’s wrestling history and says his IMPACT tenure has been Rich’s career highlight, but to Kenny, it’s just Tuesday. Those fears Rich has are all going to come true at Rebellion. Until Kenny slips on a banana peel, no one is going to take the belt off him. He tells IMPACT to consider it one of their last days of grace. Kenny says this is more than any amount of wrestling, this is history. At Rebellion, Don says he and Kenny will make history!
Eric Young is with Rhino in a jail setting. He says he baptized Rhino in the holy waters of change. Rhino has frizzy hair and is wearing an army jacket as he says the world belongs to us.
Havok and Nevaeh look to be back on the same page as Fire N Flava enters. Kiera says they can step up to the plate again but it definitely won’t be for the titles again. Kaleb and Tenille enter. When is the last time they won a match by themselves. Havok makes it clear she isn’t interested. Tenille says she wasn’t talking to her but she was talking to Nevaeh. They walk off.
Acey Romero (with Larry D) vs. Trey Miguel
Trey hits two dropkicks before Acey powers him down with a uranage. Trey dives onto Acey on the outside. Back in the ring, Acey catches Trey with a sidewalk slam and we head to break.

Trey hits a Meteora from up top for the 1-2-3!
WINNER: Trey Miguel
Immediately XXXL gang up on Trey. The IMPACT Zone glitches and Sami Callihan saves Trey. Trey looks to kick Sami but a phone hack causes him to vanish.
Gia is backstage with Rich. A little jive talk isn’t going to get his mind flustered. They don’t really know Rich then. He’s had to battle adversity his entire life. Broken legs, early retirement, all that Rich has been through, no mind games will throw him off. That One-Winged Angel did put him down, but you take all those other competitors out of Hard To Kill it’s just him and Swann.
Gia notes that James Storm has 999 matches. That’s a lot of bumps on the bump card, Storm says. He calls out Violent By Design, specifically Eric Young. Next time they come face-to-face, he’s his huckleberry. Enter Scott D’Amore. Next week in the main event, it will be back to their roosts Eric Young vs. The Cowboy. “Eric Young, sorry about your damn luck.”
Karl Anderson (with Doc Gallows) vs. Eddie Edwards
Side headlock by Anderson. Headlock takedown by Eddie. Manhattan drop, belly-to-belly suplex, and a lariat to the outside sending Karl tumbling. Eddie dives on top of both Doc and Karl as we head to the final break of the evening.
