Tessa Blanchard was released from the Impact Wrestling contract and it was supposed that a tug of war could begin over her among the wrestling promotions. For some reason, that wasn’t the case as she has decided not to wrestle since then, except for an independent event. Interestingly, she’s apparently not planning on getting back to in-ring competition, anytime soon.
It was at the Warrior Wrestling event in September where Tessa Blanchard was last seen when she lost their Women’s Title to Kylie Rae. Later, Kylie has also quit the pro wrestling business. Tessa hasn’t opened up since then that keeps the rumor mill running around her. The trend should be continuing for at least some more weeks.
Ringside News previously reported that there is no talk within WWE about signing her, for the time being. Triple H keeps in touch with her and that’s it about the situation. There were never any plans about her following the Impact Wrestling release. Fightful reports that Tessa Blanchard is not been bound by her AAA contract, as well.
Rumored WWE Star Tessa Blanchard Taking Time Away From In-Ring Action
The rumor about her being a part of the Lucha Libre promotion, began as she recently appeared at a signing and one of the banners said she is “a part of AAA.” But that’s not the case, as per the source. It was also noted Tessa Blanchard “has been taking time away from the ring.” She is not retired by any means but the newlywed might still not be over with their enjoying period with husband Daga.
Earlier this summer, Tessa Blanchard wrapped up her tenure with Impact Wrestling. At the time of her release, she was the-then Impact World Champion who was stripped of the belt. The main issue between her and the company was created as she refused to show up on their programming amid the coronavirus pandemic.
She even didn’t want to send a taped promo that could be used for her upcoming championship defense build. Eddie Edwards would then go on to win the vacant title at Slammiversary 2020 in a five-way match also featuring Ace Austin, Trey Miguel, Eric Young, and Rich Swann. During her Impact departure, Tessa Blanchard had also become a topic of discussion about how she treated other women backstage in the past.
