The women’s evolution continues even outside the WWE as they are out to change the course in all aspects. For the first time in the history of pro-wrestling, a female superstar now has the honor of calling herself to be a world champion.

This used to be an all-male thing in this industry until Tessa Blanchard broke the myth at last night’s PPV named Hard to Kill, hosted by the Impact Wrestling promotion.

Tessa Blanchard won the Impact World Championship against Sami Callihan in a match that witnessed a tremendous back and forth encounter. In the end, the brutal match witnessed Blanchard finish off the contest in style. She hit Callihan with a buzzsaw DDT to pick up a clean pinfall victory. Thus, she renamed the history of the pro-wrestling industry, forever.

The name of Tessa Blanchard will now be in the same list of Impact World champions such as Kurt Angle, Samoa Joe, Jeff Hardy, Sting, Mick Foley, AJ Styles, Bobby Roode, Bobby Lashley and more. Callihan won the world title back in October to go into an intergender beef with former Knockouts Champion. It had a proper culmination in last night’s Hard to Kill PPV event where Impact’s brightest female talent set a milestone.

Her chances of a win were relatively were short due to recent racism allegations from all around the indie circuit. At the end of the day, Impact officials decided to pull the trigger on the title change.

But the ongoing controversy could be the reason why the company did not allow Tessa Blanchard to talk after the unthinkable happened at Hard to Kill PPV. But she did address the crowd once the show was over.

After the celebration with the title was over, this is what Tessa Blanchard had to say on her accolade,

“Over the past eight months this has been my life, Sami and oVe have been the thorn in my side, and tonight, we did it. Nobody, nobody in this life is perfect. We’re all human. And it doesn’t matter what you say about me it doesn’t matter what you call me.

I have one of the strongest minds that I’ve ever known. So, whenever you come for me, you come for all of these people. I am now the standard-bearer of Impact Wrestling. And man or woman, pound for pound, I am one of the best in the world and I am now your World Champion!”
