Out of six title matches at Saturday's Impact Rebellion, three championships changed hands, led by Josh Alexander's win over Moose for the Impact World title.

It's Alexander's second reign with the gold and with the win, he avenges his loss to Moose at last October's Bound For Glory. On that night, Moose cashed in his Call Your Shot opportunity and defeated Alexander in seconds after Alexander had just defeated Christian Cage for the title.

Alexander had campaigned for the opportunity since that night and took advantage of his opportunity, pinning Moose clean after a C4.

Ace Austin reclaimed the X-Division championship for a third time in a match with reigning champion Trey Miguel and "Speedball" Mike Bailey.

Austin picked up the win after hitting The Fold on Miguel as Miguel was trying to pin Bailey after he hit him with a brain buster and meteora. Austin's second title reign ended in April 2021 at the hands of Josh Alexander in a three-way.

Taya Valkyrie defeated Deonna Purrazzo for the AAA Reina de Reinas title to begin her fourth reign as champion. 

The end came when Purrazzo tried for her Queen's Gambit submission and Valkyrie reversed it into her Road to Valhalla finish to get the pin. She last held the title in early-2020 and the title was eventually vacated during the pandemic.

In the other three title bouts, Violent By Design survived an eight-team elimination match to retain the Tag Team titles; Tasha Steelz successfully defended the Knockouts title over Rosemary, and The Influence retained the Knockouts Tag Team titles over former champions The IInspiration.
