Tessa Blanchard is still the Impact World Champion, but was not able to attend the latest Impact tapings due to the coronavirus pandemic. The original Rebellion main event had Blanchard defending against Elgin and Eddie Edwards, but the pandemic prevented that match from happening.
Elgin appeared last night and spoke about how he should be the World Champion by forfeit, but Moose interrupted and issued a challenge to declare a new champion. Hernandez then interrupted and the Triple Threat was made.
Tessa tweeted after last night's match and wrote, "Undeniable. Forever. @IMPACTWRESTLING"
There's no word yet on what Impact has planned for Moose and the original TNA World Heavyweight Title.
Impact VP Scott D'Amore also tweeted on last night's match and wrote, "How @TheMooseNation got it aside I have to say, how awesome is it to have the TNA World Heavyweight Championship belt back on @IMPACTWRESTLING???"
Moose, who joked about granting Ethan Page a title shot on Twitter, also tweeted Impact officials after the win.
Moose also responded to Tessa's tweet and dismissed her comments. He wrote, "You can throw that Junk in the Garbage.......this Carries More Weight #THEREALWORLDCHAMPION"
