The Good Brothers came to the ring. Karl Anderson said their match over the weekend shouldn’t have even counted. They said they’ve been so busy as a team lately and they weren’t prepared. Gallows said he had jet lag from Atlanta to Nashville and they want their rematch. They want their titles back. FinJuice said they’d be happy to give them a rematch, but they are busy men too. They have to go to Japan, so the rematch will have to wait for April. The Good Brothers attacked them but FinJuice slid out of the ring and backed up the entrance ramp. Matt Striker said the belts were heading to Japan.
Matt Striker and D’Lo Brown ran down the lineup for tonight’s show.
Sami Callihan hacked in and said his mission from day one was to expose fakes and phonies. He said Trey Miguel fakes having passion. He confuses anger with having passion. He said that he sees who Trey really is. He might get a few wins but he’s lacking the passion to get to the next level. Sami is going to embarrass him in front of the entire world tonight.
The Good Brothers come into Scott D’Amore’s office. They questioned how the belts can go to Japan for the month. Scott agreed and questioned how it happened. He said they said it was easy but they lost the belts, so it’s on them. He made the Tag Team title rematch for Rebellion on 4/24 on PPV.
As they left, Tommy Dreamer entered the ring. He said they have no Tag Titles now. Scott said they forged a relationship with a company that hated them and now they have to deal with that and the belts will be in Japan for a month. He said they could just run the company into the ground like he did with Paul E. Scott said if he thinks it’s so easy, he can take and book the card for Hardcore Justice on Impact+. Dreamer said he already has a card and handed it to D’Amore. Scott said it looks good and Dreamer can be the Commissioner for the evening.

Backstage, Tenille Dashwood’s partners tonight didn’t want to be known as her Followers. The team didn’t agree on who would be in charge and lead the strategy. Deonna said they can all get on the same page and leave the other team laid out. They all agreed on that.

Backstage, Willie Mack congratulated Impact Unified World Champion on his win and on beating Moose. He said they have to go party and celebrate. Swann said now isn’t the time, because he has to go to the ring and take care of some business. Mack said he’s going to stay in the back and listen.
Swann came to the ring. He said he was weighed down by all this gold. He said Sacrifice was possibly one of the hardest things he’s gone through in his entire life. He said that he and Moose went out and proved why Impact is one of the best companies in the world and has the best talent. He may not like Moose but he can respect him. At Sacrifice, it just seemed to be that Swann was riding his stallion and came out champion. Winning a Title is hard to come by, but to have two is unthinkable and unspeakable but he did it. He said that he partied for three days. In January, he had a monkey on his back, Kenny Omega. Omega pinned him then and now it all comes back around.
Swann said that he’s going to get the chance to right his wrong on 4/24. He said they are going to have something that never happens in this business. He’s going to get to face another champion from another company. On 4/24, there will be no Good Brothers, No Moose, No Chris Sabin. The match will be one of the most important things to ever happen to the industry and they will face off, one on one, to see who the real World Champion is. He said we’ll find out who the best.
Don Callis made his way to the ring. He said he was proud to be out here with Swann. He took credit for Swann coming to the company and said he was Swann’s guy. He pushed for Rich to be in the main event of Bound for Glory last year. He said that learned a lesson from Kenny Omega’s uncle that when you want something and get it, there will always be something more, something greater – so he’s moved on from Swann to Kenny Omega. He said that Swann thanked him for booking him in Bound for Glory, but he’s sorry but Omega moved on. He asked when Swann won the titles at Sacrifice and was celebrating with his wife and friends, did his wife tell his friends not to mention that loss to the One-Winged Angel at Hard To Kill. He wondered if that loss kept Rich up at night. You can’t change history, he lost to Kenny Omega at Hard To Kill 1-2-3. He said Rich is a great talent but Omegs is a God of professional wrestling. When no one thought Omega could beat Okada, Callis was there. When no one thought Omega had nothing left against Jon Moxley for the AEW title, Don was there. When no one thought Kenny couldn’t headline another company’s PPV, Don was there and in all of those instances he was calling The One-Winged Angel. Callis said Rich made history at Sacrifice but at Rebellion, Callis has already written that history. He walked off, leaving a solemn Swann standing in the middle of the ring.
They went to the AEW “paid” ad, promoting the St. Patrick’s Day Slam lineup.
Backstage, Eddie Edwards and Matt Cardona were speaking when Brian Myers walked into them. Cardona asked Edwards to let him speak to Myers privately. Myers asked him why Cardona keeps getting in his business. Myers said Impact was for him to come and do things on his own. He doesn’t want Cardona here and told him to get lost. He stormed off.

Backstage, the new X-Division Champion Ace Austin and said that after this weekend, everything is once again everything that it should be.
