Two weeks ago, Impact Wrestling announced the hiring of Tessa Blanchard as part of the Knockouts division. The agreement was considered long-lasting and in the last edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that it has a duration of 2 years.
Blanchard has been in the focus of companies like WWE, having participated in the first women’s tournament Mae Young Classic, where there were some rumors about his attitude that generated discomfort. In the following months, the fighter continued working on the independent circuit and later joined the Impact Wrestling where she ended up signing the contract whose duration is now known, confirming that Blanchard will not be one of the possible participants of the second Mae Young Classic.
In recent months Impact Wrestling has been responsible for renewing their ranks by making several contracts from the independent scene. In particular, the company has seen a renewal in its division of women with contracts such as Blanchard, Su Yung and more recently Scarlett Bordeaux, which will debut next Thursday.
