Tessa Blanchard signs Impact Wrestling deal

 
 

Impact Wrestling today announced that Tessa Blanchard has signed a new, long-term deal with the company, just months after making her debut in April.

The 22-year-old started with Impact Wrestling at the Redemption pay-per-view, doing commentary for the match between Kiera Hogan and Taya Valkyrie. Her in-ring debut for Impact came on the May 17 episode of Impact Wrestling.

Before joining Impact Wrestling, Blanchard appeared on NXT and was part of the Mae Young Classic tournament, losing to the eventual winner Kairi Sane in the first round. She also wrestled for World Wonder Ring Stardom.

Tessa is the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard.
