WWE interested in Tessa Blanchard


On Sunday's Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that WWE has sent feelers out regarding former Impact Wrestling World champion Tessa Blanchard.

Impact announced on Thursday they had terminated their relationship with Blanchard and that she was stripped of their World title. Her contract was set to run out before the July 18th Slammiversary pay-per-view, but the company was hopeful they could come to an agreement for one more match. 

She has been in Mexico with her fiancee and fellow wrestler Daga and hasn't been at the last two sets of Impact tapings due to concerns about getting back into the country due to the pandemic.

Blanchard has worked in the WWE system before, doing a handful of matches for NXT in 2016. She also was in the 2017 Mae Young Classic and lost in the first round to Kairi Saine. 

She signed a two-year deal with Impact in 2018 and worked with both men and women, holding the Knockouts title once and the Impact World title, the latter after a win over Sami Callihan this past January at Hard to Kill.

Meltzer said he didn't know if there was any interest from AEW in signing Blanchard.
