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.

While NXT is on the air right now on the WWE Network, the brand is simultaneously holding its next set of television tapings at Full Sail University that will run up to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III on August 18th. Tonight’s episode has been previewing next week’s big NXT Championship match as Tommaso Ciampa challenges Aleister Black.

Ciampa has had the NXT Title in his crosshairs since defeating Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Chicago II in a Street Fight. ‘The Blackheart’ has looked to put Gargano behind him and played mind games with the current champion leading up to next week’s contest, however the match was filmed tonight.

Tommaso Ciampa has gone on to defeat Black, becoming the new NXT Champion. According to MrJacobCohen on Twitter, who has been a solid source for spoilers, the referee went down in the match which led to Johnny Gargano making his way out after Ciampa.

WWE News: Titus O’Neil Speaks Out On Hulk Hogan’s Return, Reports He Stormed Out

Published

on

The news of Hulk Hogan’s reinstatement into the WWE Hall Of Fame this past Sunday prior to the Extreme Rules pay-per-view has remained a hot topic not only among the fans, but also some of the WWE Superstars as well. After WWE Hall Of Famer Mark Henry offered his thoughts to TMZ Sports this week (find that here), today The New Day addressed their feelings on the situation with a post on Twitter (read that here).

Another Superstar who has been a topic of discussion with rumors swirling regarding how he reacted to the locker room’s meeting with Hogan (find out more about that here) has been Titus O’Neil. A number of false reports surfaced this week claiming Titus stormed out of the PPG Paints Arena in frustration with Hogan’s return and now Titus has issued his own statement on Hulk’s reinstatement to the Hall Of Fame, as well as the rumors surrounding his reaction:

“To my gracious fans and the WWE Universe. 

The reports and rumors concerning my boycotting “Extreme Rules” in Pittsburgh is false and inaccurate. I was not scheduled to attend or be a participant in the “Extreme Rules” match/production and was otherwise not booked for the show.

The talent present in Pittsburgh, which I was a part of, was asked to attend a mandatory meeting in which Mr. Terry Bollea addressed everyone and informed the same that he would be reinstated into the WWE Hall of Fame. At no point during, after or otherwise did I make any scene concerning Mr. Bollea’s communication to the talent. In addition, let it be known that I did not refuse to shake Mr. Bollea’s hand; we did not have any type of one-on-one interaction whatsoever that would or did necessitate any exchange between us individually. 

As to the reinstatement of Mr. Bollea, I can only communicate that I am a proponent of second and even third chances for individuals that show true remorse, acknowledgment of wrongdoing, fulfill their punishment, if applicable, and otherwise put forth sincere efforts to correct the issues. 

Unfortunately, I must echo the sentiment and dissatisfaction expressed by many of my fellow contemporaries concerning Mr. Bollea’s apology and its lack of true contrition, remorse and a desire to change. Mr. Bollea’s apology “that he didn’t know he was being recorded” is not remorse for the hateful and violent utterances he made which reprise language that has caused violence against blacks and minorities for centuries.

I stand firm in my position that Mr. Bollea is entitled to reinstatement; he was and is a role model, hero and icon to countless people. I hope that Mr. Bollea’s missteps in communicating to the WWE talent in Pittsburgh are not repeated to his fans and I expect that he shall pursue an agenda that clearly communicates to all third parties that his language was inappropriate, wrong and should not be tolerated in a civilized and inclusive society.

As the father of two young black men, I have spent their entire life and the majority of my adult life with a singular focus; being a role model for my children and young black boys and girls. I take tremendous pride in my charity work and the community outreach programs that I have fostered via the platform I have been given. I teach my sons love and tolerance for everybody, but I also teach them to operate in truth and respect.

I hope this clears up any confusion. I, like New Day, will continue to use my platform to positively affect, entertain, embrace, celebrate and love people from all backgrounds both inside and outside of the WWE Universe.

Sincerely,

Thaddeus Bullard aka Titus O’Neil”
