Tessa Blanchard to be in action against Kylie Rae at Warrior Wrestling’s 9/12 show

Tessa Blanchard is returning to the ring for the first time since March and she'll be defending the Warrior Wrestling Women's Title against Kylie Rae.

As a part of their ‘Stadium Series’, Warrior Wrestling is presenting their next several events in high school football stadiums in the Chicago area. Their next event is titled ‘Hot Take’ and it’ll feature the in-ring return of the promotion’s Women’s Champion and former IMPACT World Champion Tessa Blanchard. Blanchard last wrestled in March and she last made headlines over the Summer when IMPACT Wrestling confirmed that they terminated her contract with the company.

FITE noted in their preview that Blanchard is defending the Warrior Wrestling Women’s Championship against Kylie Rae.

Prior to the news of Blanchard’s contract with IMPACT Wrestling being terminated, her reign as IMPACT World Champion was heavily scrutinized as many wrestlers came forward about Blanchard’s verbal abuse and bullying towards them throughout their respective careers. The likes of Chelsea Green, Allysin Kay, Priscilla Kelly, Isla Dawn, Rebel, Mia Yim and several others shared the negative experiences that they’ve had with Blanchard over the years.

Blanchard was also accused of spitting in La Black Rose’s face in Japan and calling her the “n” word. Blanchard denied that claim in two separate statements via social media.
