Background[]

Rebellion is a professional wrestling event produced by Impact Wrestling. It is annually held during the month of April, and the event was first held in 2019. At Hard To Kill, Impact Wrestling announced Rebellion would take place in on April 23, 2022, at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center in Poughkeepsie, New York.

Storylines[]

The event featured several professional wrestling matches that involved different wrestlers from pre-existing scripted feuds, plots, and storylines. Wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters in scripted events that build tension and culminate in a wrestling match or series of matches. Storylines were produced on Impact's weekly television program.

At Bound for Glory, in October 2021, Josh Alexander defeated Christian Cage to win the Impact World Championship. While Alexander was celebrating with his family, Moose, who earlier won the Call Your Shot Gauntlet match, ambushed him and invoked his opportunity, immediately capturing the title. In the following months, Alexander wanted revenge on Moose, but was repeatedly denied by Impact Executive Vice President, Scott D'Amore. On the February 10, 2022 episode of Impact!, Alexander continued to attack Big Kon after defeating him. Security would try to intervene, but Alexander would push them away, and he even pushed D'Amore. As a result, D'Amore would send Alexander home, as a kayfabe explanation for Alexander's contract and work visa expiring. At Sacrifice, after Moose retained the Impact World Championship against Heath, Alexander returned to attack Moose, and announced that he had signed both a new multi-year Impact Wrestling contract, and a contract to face Moose for his World title in the main event of Rebellion.

On March 8, Impact Wrestling announced that Trey Miguel will defend the Impact X Division Championship in a three-way match at Rebellion, with two other three-way matches to take place on following episodes of Impact! to determine his challengers. Ace Austin and Mike Bailey qualified for the three-way match by defeating Crazzy Steve and John Skyler, and Laredo Kid and Willie Mack, respectively.

On the February 10, 2022 episode of Impact!, after Josh Alexander was sent home by Scott D'Amore, Team Impact (Chris Sabin, Eddie Edwards, Rich Swann, and Rhino) elected ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham to replace Alexander in their match against Honor No More (Matt Taven, Mike Bennett, Kenny King, PCO, and Vincent) at No Surrender. At No Surrender, Edwards would ultimately betray Team Impact and allow Honor No More to win; he was later revealed as the faction's leader on the following episode of Impact!. On March 25, it was announced that Gresham will face off with Edwards at Rebellion. On April 23, it was announced that Gresham was removed from the match due to an injury and was replaced by Chris Bey.

At Sacrifice, Violent By Design (Eric Young and Joe Doering) defeated The Good Brothers (Doc Gallows and Karl Anderson) to win the Impact World Tag Team Championship. On the March 17 episode of Impact!, The Good Brothers confronted Scott D'Amore about a rematch, which they received in the form of a lumberjack match for the following week. In addition, D'Amore announced that whoever would be champion after that match would defend against their opponents, as well as six other teams, in an Eight-Team Elimination Challenge at Rebellion. VBD would retain the titles due to interference by Honor No More.

On the March 31 episode of Impact!, Rosemary won a battle royal to become the number one contender to the Impact Knockouts World Championship, and will face champion Tasha Steelz at Rebellion.

At Multiverse of Matches, Deonna Purrazzo successfully defended the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship against Faby Apache—the woman she beat for the title—in her latest "Champ-Champ Open Challenge". However, Purrazzo's victory would be interrupted by Taya Valkyrie, making her return to Impact after over a year and challenging Purrazzo for the title at Rebellion
