BREAKING NEWS: Impact Fires Tessa Blanchard, Strips Her of The Title

Impact Fires Tessa Blanchard, Strips Her of The Title
Impact Wrestling has terminated Tessa Blanchard's contract and stripped her of the Impact World Championship.



Tessa was originally going to defend the Impact World title at Slammiversary on July 18 against Eddie Edwards, Ace Austin, and Trey. The match was going to be her first match since COVID-19. She has been stuck in Mexico due to the pandemic and missed several empty arena TV tapings.

As we noted weeks ago, Tessa was supposed to send promos from Mexico for a June episode of Impact, but she never sent them. There were even attempts made to get her to return and drop the Impact World Championship, but neither side would come to terms.

Tessa Blanchard won the Impact World Championship earlier in January at the Hard to Kill PPV after defeating then-champion Sami Callihan. She became the first woman to win the title.

Here is Impact's statement:
Impact Wrestling confirmed that it has terminated its relationship with Tessa Blanchard and stripped her of the Impact Wrestling World Championship.
Tessa's Impact contract was set to expire before Slammiversary.
