Tessa Blanchard signs 'long-term' contract with Impact Wrestling


Tessa Blanchard has officially signed with Impact Wrestling.

Impact announced the news via Twitter this afternoon: "BREAKING: @Tess_Blanchard will continue to prove she's undeniable in the Knockouts Division as she has signed a long-term contract with IMPACT Wrestling."

Aside from it being a "long-term" deal, the exact length of the contract wasn't disclosed.

Blanchard debuted for Impact at their Redemption pay-per-view this past April and has been feuding with Madison Rayne since. On the most recent episode of Impact, she tried to interfere during Rayne & Allie vs. Knockouts Champion Su Yung & Yung's Undead Maid of Honor but was fought off by Allie.

The 22-year-old Blanchard is a third-generation wrestler and began her in-ring career in 2014. She appeared in WWE's inaugural Mae Young Classic last summer, losing to Kairi Sane in the first round.

Impact also announced last month that Eli Drake had signed a contract to stay with the company. Dave Meltzer reported that Drake's new deal is for multiple years.
