Tommy Dreamer is unleashing the Innovator of Violence in Hardcore War at the Rebellion PPV on Sunday, April 16. He is about to kick some ass on Bully Ray. It’s not just one-on-one though. Hardcore War calls for teams of five to get extreme. Dreamer picked his final teammate to make the match official.

Dreamer approached rising star Bhupinder Gujjar. Dreamer warned Gujjar that this type of match changes a person down to their core. He also advised that this isn’t an opportunity to pass up, since it will help harden Gujjar on his path toward greatness. Gujjar was in.

Team Dreamer will be Dreamer, Gujjar, Frankie Kazarian, Yuya Uemura, and Killer Kelly. Team Bully will be Bully, Kenny King, John Skyler, Jason Hotch, and Masha Slamovich.

Impact also filled out the Rebellion card with two more matches. Eddie Edwards and PCO will fight again. This time it is a Last Rites match. Impact described the path to victory as, “the only way to win is to put your opponent inside of a casket and close the lid.”

The Knockouts tag titles will be on the line when Rosemary & Jessicka have their contractual rematch as former champs to face current titleholders Taylor Wilde & KiLynn King.

The full lineup for Rebellion includes:

  • Impact World Championship: Steve Maclin vs. Kushida
  • Knockouts Championship: Mickie James (c) (if healthy) vs. Jordynne Grace vs. Deonna Purrazzo
  • Impact World Tag Team Championship: Ace Austin & Chris Bey (c) vs. Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley in Ultimate X
  • X-Division Championship: Trey Miguel (c) vs. “Speedball” Mike Bailey vs. Jonathan Gresham in an elimination three-way
  • Knockouts Tag Team Championship: Taylor Wilde & KiLynn King (c) vs. Rosemary & Jessicka
  • Hardcore War: Team Dreamer (Tommy Dreamer, Frankie Kazarian, Yuya Uemura, Killer Kelly, & Bhupinder Gujjar) vs. Team Bully (Bully Ray, John Skyler, Jason Hotch, Kenny King, & Masha Slamovich)
  • Last Rites match: Eddie Edwards vs. PCO
  • Santino Marella, Joe Hendry, & Dango vs. The Design

The Rebellion broadcast starts at 8 pm ET on April 16 streaming through Fite TV.
