The coronavirus continues to feed on all major events of global wrestling. The last of them have been the next great PPV of Impact Wrestling, Rebellion, scheduled for next April 19 at Terminal 4 in New York. The event has been canceled.
The event’s ticketing page, AXS.com, has announced on its own website that the event has been canceled due to the coronavirus outbreak, which has forced the state and New York City to go into a state of emergency. However, Impact Wrestling has not released a statement on the cancellation.
Only two matches had been announced for the event: an individual match Between Ken Shamrock and Sami Callihan, and a triple threat by the Impact world championship in which Tessa Blanchard would defend her belt against Michael Elgin and Eddie Edwards.
Now it will be time to know what will happen with the next weekly Impact Wrestling programs, previously recorded in Las Vegas and Atlanta, and what did the road to the April PPV mean?. It should be remembered that Impact has already canceled two special events: Lockdown, on March 28 in Ontario, and March Breakdown on March 29 in Belleville, Michigan.
