“Impact Wrestling confirmed that it has terminated its relationship with Tessa Blanchard and stripped her of the Impact Wrestling World Championship.”

Blanchard had not competed for the promotion in a while due to COVID-19 situation, but was scheduled to return for Slammiversary on July 18.

Her deal with Impact going to expire before the PPV. Impact officials optimistic Tessa Blanchard would return for a final appearance at the show. It was not meant to be.

However, the situation between the two parties became increasingly icy after the female star did not record and send content for the June 1 episode of Impact which forced the company to make major edits to the script.

These events made it increasingly obvious that Blanchard will not return to the promotion and so the company decided to cut bait and move forward.

There is no word yet on what the future holds for the 24-year-old second generation star. Her father, Tully Blanchard, works as an on-air talent All Elite Wrestling. It will be interesting to see if AEW is willing to do business with her, despite her reputation for being very difficult to deal with.
