Tessa Blanchard might just be headed to WWE based on a new report.
Following her departure from Impact Wrestling earlier this week, Dave Meltzer noted on Sunday’s Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE has “sent feelers out” to contact Tessa about potentially working together.
Meltzer has stated in the past that while WWE knows how talented Blanchard is, the company didn’t sign her to a developmental deal in the past because of attitude issues. Blanchard’s reputation she had built on the independent circuit in the pro wrestling business has followed her throughout her career.
Of course, Blanchard’s tenure with Impact ended when the promotion decided to strip her of the World Title and terminated her contract despite advertising her for its Slammiversary pay-per-view event on July 18th.
The reason for that is due Blanchard failing to send promos from her home in Mexico for a June episode of Impact. This caused Impact to make changes to the show.
While it was known that Blanchard would have to drop the title because she didn’t want to leave Mexico out of fear that she couldn’t be let back into the country due to the coronavirus pandemic, the two sides couldn’t work out the terms in order to do that. Thus, Impact just made the call to terminate her contract.
Blanchard does have a history with WWE as she’s worked squash matches on NXT TV and been a competitor in the first Mae Young Classic Tournament.
