New X-Division, Knockouts Tag Team champs crowned at Impact Rebellion


Even before the title vs. title main event, Sunday's Impact Rebellion saw a pair of title changes as both the X-Division and Knockouts Tag Team titles changed hands.

In the show opener, Josh Alexander won the X-Division title for the first time, defeating incumbent Ace Austin and former champion TJP in a three-way. 

The end saw TJP hit a mamba splash on Alexander but he got pulled out of the ring by Austin cornerman Madman Fulton. Alexander recovered and hit his Divine Intervention finisher to get the pin on Austin to win the title. Austin's second title reign began at last month's Sacrifice when he defeated TJP.

Later in the night, the debuting Rachael Ellering and former Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace defeated Fire N' Flava to win the Knockouts Tag Team titles.

Ellering was introduced Thursday as Grace's surprise partner as regular partner Jazz retired following a title vs. career match against Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo. Ellering got the win for her team, hitting a suplex version of the Sky High on Kiera Hogan for the pin.

The night's other title matches saw Purrazzo retain with a win over Tenille Dashwood while FinJuice retained the Tag Team titles with their victory over the Good Brothers.

The title vs. title main event featuring AEW World Champion Kenny Omega vs. Impact World Champion Rich Swann is going on now.
