Brian Cage and Johnny Impact had an intense rivalry that culminated at IMPACT Wrestling’s Rebellion as Cage challenged Johnny Impact for the IMPACT World Championship. Lance Storm was the special guest referee.
After a brutal match that featured interferences from Taya Valkyrie and John E. Bravo, Brian Cage managed to hit Johnny with the Drill Claw for the win. He became the new IMPACT World Champion.
However, after his massive victory, a newcomer to the company interrupted Cage’s celebration. Michael Elgin made his IMPACT Wrestling debut. Elgin came to the ring and made it clear that he was coming for Brian Cage’s title. Then he beat down on Cage to get his point across.
