Tessa Blanchard’s title victory came just one day after she was the topic of conversation on social media after she tweeted out that women should be supporting one another. NWA World Women’s Champion Allysin Kay brought up that Tessa spat on an African-American woman’s face and called her a racial slur during a tour of Japan. The likes of Isla Dawn, Kavita Devi, Priscilla Kelly, Rebel, Thunder Rosa and more names commented on their experiences with Tessa Blanchard and the bully-like attitude she had towards them. La Black Rose, who is the woman that Allysin Kay alluded to, reacted to Tessa’s tweet as well.
Tessa Blanchard did not speak to the press at the IMPACT media junket on January 11th and she is not speaking to the press following her World Title win.
IMPACT Wrestling also announced during the pay-per-view that they’ll be hosting the second installment of their Rebellion pay-per-view on April 5th in New York City.
