IMPACT Wrestling Rebellion is arguably the company's most important pay-per-view of the year. The event kicked off with a big title change that saw Josh Alexander capture the X-Division Championship for the first time.

The opening contest of IMPACT Wrestling Rebellion saw Ace Austin defending his X-Division Championship against TJP and Josh Alexander.

Alexander has received a solo push as of late after his former tag team partner, Ethan Page, left the company and signed with AEW.

The three men put on a fantastic opening contest with plenty of spots and near falls. The match was a true representation of the X-Division and what it stands for.

The finish of the match saw Josh Alexander knock TJP off the apron onto Madman Fulton before turning his eyes to Ace Austin. After a few back and forth moves, Alexander hit Divine Intervention to capture his first singles championship in IMPACT Wrestling.
