Tessa Blanchard Says She Has Unfinished Business In Pro Wrestling

Tessa Blanchard on her pro wrestling future

She has largely been out of professional wrestling since being fired by IMPACT in the summer of 2020 but Tessa Blanchard has become more active in recent weeks, having wrestled several matches for Canada Wrestling's Elite as part of their tour across the Great White North. 

Blanchard has also inked a multi-show deal with Xtreme Pro Wrestling and she will make her debut at the promotion's Broken, Beat & Scarred show on Saturday, May 27. 

Speaking about her pro wrestling future with Mike McGuire on McGuire on Wrestling, Blanchard noted she feels she has "unfinished business" in the industry.

"First of all, I can't even express how thankful I am. The fans have been so accepting. Even today, the fans are chanting 'Tessa, Tessa.' That always feels great, especially being away for so long. I always want a lot more. I feel I have unfinished business in wrestling. I'm 27-years-old and I do feel confident that I'm one of the best there is and I can go with the best. I won't stop pushing for that, but I have other things going on too," Tessa said.

"I think it's important to have that balance of knowing who you are outside of the business because the business isn't always going to be there for you and it's very unforgiving. It will recycle people left and right. I know who Tessa is without wrestling, which makes me more dangerous when I go back to wrestling."

Prior to her firing from IMPACT in 2020, Blanchard was accused of bullying and using a racial slur towards La Rosa Negra. The two talents have since made amends. Blanchard was set to be the star of WOW - Women of Wrestling at one point but her relationship with the promotion fell apart before she made an on-screen appearance.
