Tessa Blanchard is making headlines for all the wrong reasons lately. The first-ever female Impact World Champion has suffered the ire of fans and wrestlers alike owing to her backstage behavior. The initial allegations were just the beginning.
Blanchard wrestles for WOW where she also works as a head trainer. Reports suggested that the WOW locker room were sent emails, where they were told not to give any comment regarding Blanchard’s situation.
According to a report by Fightful Select, Blanchard would “have it out with WOW trainers.” She reportedly had confrontations with trainers, leaving one trainer crying in front of the group due to the incidents.
It was also reported that she has “gained influence in the company” and eventually “certain things had to be approved” by Tessa Blanchard. This increased by the time season two of WOW came.
The report also added that “there was a confrontation between Tessa and another top name in WOW.” This “verbal battle” took place in front of others after “weeks of tension.”
Members of the WOW locker room who worked for the promotion for a long time “felt as if they lost their pushes once Blanchard showed up and made heavy changes.”
