For those who follow Impact Wrestling, are must be aware with the name of Tessa Blanchard who is a star performer, out there. It would no wrong to mention her as the biggest female name from the Knockout division of the company. The daughter of former pro-wrestler Tully Blanchard has made quite a name for herself becoming the Knockouts Champion on different occasions.
Plus, Tessa Blanchard has built a unique genre of wrestling by competing with some of the major male wrestlers of Impact Wrestling. Over the past few months, she’s competed with names like Sami Callihan, Tommy Dreamer, Rob Van Dam and more. This helped her to get compared with a WWE Hall of Famer, Chyna.
WWE Universe knows her better as the eighth wonder of the world who used to wrestle with the male superstars with ease. With her body physique and in-ring agility, she mostly looked bigger than most of the ale roster members of her time. In the case of Tessa Blanchard, she’s not that much bigger like Chyna but still dares to take on the male superstars, on a regular basis.
Talking with Chris Van Vliet, Tessa Blanchard mentioned Chyna to be her inspiration and also answered whether she could win the Impact World title for her unique stint,
“It’s not something that’s really been done since Chyna and that wasn’t even the world title. A lot of people compare me to her, a lot. I don’t know, I think if that were to ever happen, if that were ever to be reality, that would be another way that I can make history in my own way.”
Furthermore, Tessa Blanchard noted on inter-gender wrestling. She has brought back this tradition to modern-day wrestling that has become extinct from the big leagues.
Tessa thanked her training sessions to come handy to deliver these kinds of matches. She was born and brought up while wrestling opposite gender superstars and in the way became very passionate about this genre,
“It’s something that I’ve always been passionate about because I trained with the guys, that’s the way I was brought up and I feel like it’s helped my timing, my transitions, my intensity, different things like that but it was actually something (Impact) approached me with and it just worked. It was very natural, not forced, it just worked and I think that’s why I love it so much.”
