IMPACT News: Current Impact Wrestling Star Signs Long-Term Contract

Published

on

It was just announced today that current IMPACT Wrestling Knockout Tessa Blanchard has signed a long-term deal with the company. You can check out the tweet below:

Tessa Blanchard is a third generation star, the granddaughter of wrestler and promoter Joe Blanchard, as well as the daughter of Tully Blanchard and step-daughter of Magnum TA. Tessa didn’t decide to become a wrestler until 2012 or early 2013.  She made her IMPACT debut at the Redemption PPV back in April of this year during the Kiera Hogan vs. Taya Valkyrie match. During her time on the commentary table that night, she claimed that she was better than any Knockout on the roster and that she was undeniable. Following Redemption, Tessa would find herself in a feud with Kiera Hogan. The two Knockouts clashed on the May 17th episode of IMPACT on Pop which marked Tessa’s in-ring debut. She would win the match, but begin a post-match beat down which prompted the returning Madison Rayne to come off of commentary and make the save. Since her debut, Blanchard has two wins over Kiera Hogan and two losses to Madison Rayne.

Here is Scott D’Amore’s reponse to the breaking news:

Tessa Blanchard has also made appearances for WWE as one of Adam Rose’s Rosebuds in 2014 and make her in-ring debut onn NXT in 2016 (losing to Alexa Bliss). She would then go on to lose two more matches that same year to both Nia Jax and Carmella. In 2017, Tessa returned to WWE to compete in the inaugural Mae Young Classic.

Tessa Blanchard’s Resume:

  • 1 time PCW Ultra Women’s Champion
  • 1 time and current Phoenix of RISE Champion
  • 1 time Shimmer Tag Team Champion was with Vanessa Kraven
  • 1 time EWA Heavyweight Champion

Ja’ Von’s Take: This is good news for not only fans of Tessa Blanchard or Impact Wrestling but the company itself. Tessa has continued to impress me with her in-ring ability with only a few years under her belt. I’m a fan of hers and agree that she is undeniable and will become Knockouts Champion one day soon. She is the perfect fit to the Impact roster and I look forward to see what she does next in Impact Wrestling.

Velveteen Dream challenged Tommaso Ciampa for his NXT Championship under the bright lights of Los Angeles at WWE NXT Takeover War Games!

  • Velveteen Dream made his entrance first, emulating the NWO’s Hollywood Hogan with his attire and entrance.
  • During both his entrance and the announcements, Tommaso Ciampa repeatedly kissed the nameplate on his NXT Championship.
  • Ciampa would steal Dream’s “Hollywood” headband, then do the Hogan Ear Cusp, which elicited a huge round of boos from the crowd. Dream would get his headband back, not not after doing the Macho Man throat dive over the top rope and Macho Man double ax-handle off the top.
  • Velveteen Dream would later suplex Tommaso Ciampa over the top rope, sending both men crashing to the floor, doing damage to both competitors.
  • The referee would avoid an errant kick from Dream and catch Ciampa pulling the tights in a roll-up that would have otherwise ended the match.
  • Soon after, Tommaso Ciampa would complete a barrage of offense with a Project Ciampa, but Dream kicked out at two.
  • Dream would hit the Swinging Spike DDT on the NXT Championship, which Ciampa brought into the ring. Ciampa himself would then kick out at two.
  • Late in the match we’d see Ciampa take a shot at Mauro Ranallo, which allowed Dream to take the advantage and eventually connect with the Purple Rainmaker… for two.
  • A short time later, Ciampa would score the pinfall to retain his championship after hitting a Draping DDT on the metal sheet connecting the two rings.

WWE NXT Takeover War Games Aleister Black Johnny Gargano

Results of the third match of WWE NXT Takeover War Games, Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black in grudge match!





Check out Mitchell’s WWE NXT Takeover War Games Coverage!

NXT TakeOver WarGames II


Aleister Black was out for revenge on Johnny Gargano for his unwarranted attack at WWE NXT Takeover War Games!

  • Johnny Gargano hit the ring first, still acting like a babyface (which he should) but questioning the fans’ somewhat negative reaction to him (which he also should). Aleister Black had his usual theatrical entrance.
  • It was noted that this is Johnny Gargano’s 11th Takeover match, the most of any talent on the roster.
  • Johnny took the early advantage, playing mind games with Aleister and showing why he’s still called “Johnny Wrestling.”
  • Both men would trade strikes mid-match before Gargano nailed a Reverse Rana followed by a Leaping Knee Strike from Black.
  • Black stopped Gargano from going for his DIY strike, instead sitting in his trademark position, center ring, and daring Gargano to give him his best shot. Black moved and rolled Gargano up but did not score the fall.
  • The Staples Center broke out into a “Mama Mia!” chant after Black nailed a knee strike when Gargano dove at him through the ropes.
  • Aleister Black would end the match with an exposed knee strike and two Black Mass kicks to score the pinfall victory.
