However, Moose said he would be pulling himself out of the tournament. It was announced later that Rohit Raju would replace him in the tournament.

You can view the bracket in the graphic above. The tournament is set to begin next week on IMPACT.

Tessa Blanchard is currently in Mexico and missed the IMPACT tapings in Nashville, TN last month. She was scheduled to defend her IMPACT World Title against Michael Elgin and Eddie Edwards in a triple threat match at Rebellion, but could not make the two-night event due to the coronavirus pandemic. Edwards also missed the event.

Instead, Moose battle Elgin and Hernandez with the TNA World Title on the line. Moose was victorious and he recognizes himself as the TNA World Champion.
