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



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.

Mitchell’s AEW Continental Classic Update! (11/27/23)

What a start to the tournament!



Did your picks win points?

The AEW Continental Classic is underway, with almost everyone competing. Check in here if you haven’t seen the winners and losers of week 1!

Here are your Gold League standings!

  • Jon Moxley: 1-0, 3 points
  • Swerve Strickland: 1-0, 3 points
  • Jay White: 1-0, 3 points
  • Rush: 0-1, 0 points
  • Mark Briscoe: 0-1, 0 points.
  • Jay Lethal: 0-1, 0 points


Here are your Blue League standings!

  • Brody King: 1-0, 3 points
  • Claudio Castagnoli: 1-0, 3 points
  • Daniel Garcia: 0-1, 0 points
  • Eddie Kingston: 0-1, 0 points
  • Bryan Danielson: Yet to Compete
  • Andrade El Idolo: Yet to Compete


My Thoughts:

Nothing too crazy, nothing too wild, this tournament only just got started. The only disappointing point is that they could not get Bryan “cleared to compete” Saturday night. Not sure how much of that is shoot given the bad eye, but this was kinda the problem of wanting him in the tournament over tons of other choices. Bryan wants to face Okada for WrestleKingdom 18, how is Bryan supposed to do that at his best if he’s also gonna be in a round robin, doing five top level matches in about as many weeks? And it takes away from Andrade being able to do something. Also a little surprised we didn’t even hear from Andrade on Saturday.

Now as we heard on Saturday, round two’s matches are set. Gold League will see Mark Briscoe VS Rush, White VS Swerve, and of course, Moxley VS Lethal. Nice variety there, a couple 0-1 guys facing off, as well as two 1-0 guys, and then 1-0 VS 0-1. No offense to Lethal, but he feels like an 0-2 going up against Moxley. Hard to call the other ones but that’s the fun of it. Meanwhile, Blue League sees Brody VS Claudio in a showdown to be 2-0, then Bryan and Andrade finally jump in, Bryan against Eddie and Andrade against Garcia. Sadly, feels like Eddie and Garcia are going 0-2, no way Tony Khan is booking Bryan and Andrade to lose their first shots.

In fact, that could be half the reason they did wait on those two, that’s almost too good for just a first round opener. But I still would’ve done it, same as NJPW does stuff like that for round robins, which this is all modeled after anyway.
