Tessa Blanchard makes Impact Wrestling debut at Redemption

Impact Wrestling’s Redemption PPV featured a handful of surprises, one being the apparent debut of Tessa Blanchard.

During last night’s match between Taya Valkyrie and Kiera Hogan, Blanchard made her debut, joining the commentary desk. Blanchard said that after traveling the world and winning matches across the world, she figures that Impact Wrestling needs her talent.

Last week the Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported that the WWE is very high on Blanchard and were looking to sign her. It’s not known yet whether plans fell through or if there was ever really a chance of her signing with the company in the first place. What is known now, though, is that Tessa Blanchard is officially a Knockout.

    They can’t sign everyone. There will be missed opportunities and there will be ones that they take up.
    No different to Impact/TNA failing to retain some of their best talent and offering them low ball contracts.
    WWE might have missed the opportunity on Tessa, but certainly did not on Eric Young, Bobby Roode, AJ Styles, Samoa Joe and god knows how many Impact, RoH, NJPW and god knows how many other promotions they have signed people from in the last few years.

    Those 2 women in the ring are brutal! Bring back the days of Gail Kim & Awesome Kong. Hiring Tessa is a step in the right direction.
