Tessa Blanchard has what could be the biggest match of her career coming up at Hard To Kill on January 12th. She will have a chance to win the Impact World Title, but she will have to beat Sami Callihan to do it.
The subject of intergender wrestling is a controversial one. Some companies won’t touch the taboo topic, but Impact Wrestling embraces it. While speaking to Busted Open Radio, Tessa Blanchard discussed how intergender wrestling allows her to be different from everyone else.
“I think it’s really cool that women are given such a platform right now, and in different companies, you’re seeing the first this and the first that, and the first this and the first that, and I think it’s so great, it’s so great for the evolution of women’s wrestling and women’s athletes all together. And one thing that stood out to me about all that was, at first I let it bother me a little bit, it would kind of give me an itch that, oh man, I want to be part of the first this and the first that and this to happen, but I want to be different. I want to make an impact on the business in a way that is different than anybody else has, and I feel like Impact is giving us the platform to do that through intergender wrestling which is really cool to me.”
This time next week fans could be talking about how Tessa Blanchard was able to defeat Sami Callihan at Hard To Kill. If you ask Callihan, he will have a different story to tell.
This could be a brutal match, but it’s nothing Tessa Blanchard hasn’t dealt with already as she scratched and clawed to get her way to the top of Impact Wrestling.
