In a match of two heavy hitters, Tomohiro Ishii will take on JONAH at April's Impact Rebellion pay-per-view for the first time ever.
The new addition to the card was revealed during Thursday's Impact via the following JONAH promo:
New Japan legend Ishii will make his Impact debut next Friday at Impact's Multiverse of Matches on Impact Plus as he takes on Eddie Edwards.
Another singles match was made Thursday as current Ring of Honor World Champion Jonathan Gresham will take on Honor No More leader Eddie Edwards.
Gresham hasn't agreed with the tactics of his old ROH running mates in Impact and made his return Thursday to aid Rocky Romero after Edwards was attacking him following their match. It was not announced as a title match as Gresham defends against Bandido at ROH's Supercard of Honor PPV next Friday.
In another update to the April 23rd PPV lineup, "Speedball" Mike Bailey earned his way into an X-Division title shot on the show.
Bailey defeated Laredo Kid and Willie Mack in a three-way Thursday, giving him a spot in the Rebellion three-way against X-Division Champion Trey Miguel and former champion Ace Austin.
Here's the current card for the Poughkeepsie, New York, event:
- Impact World Champion Moose vs. Josh Alexander in a title match
- X-Division Champion Trey Miguel vs. Mike Bailey vs. Ace Austin in a title match
- JONAH vs. Tomohiro Ishii
- Jonathan Gresham vs. Eddie Edwards
