Tessa Blanchard won the Impact World Title at Hard To Kill. She decided not to speak to the press following the event, but she did address the crowd following her big win.
After her win over Sami Callihan, the Hard To Kill pay-per-view cut off at two minutes before the top of the hour. Blanchard stuck around in the ring and grabbed a microphone to address the live crowd.
“Over the past eight months this has been my life, Sami and oVe has been the thorn in my side, and tonight, we did it. Nobody, nobody in this life is perfect. We’re all human. And it doesn’t matter what you say about me it doesn’t matter what you call me. I have one of the strongest minds that I’ve ever known. So, whenever you come for me, you come for all of these people. I am now the standard bearer of Impact Wrestling. And man or woman, pound for pound, I am one of the best in the world and I am now your World Champion!”
Blanchard was pulled from one indie event following these allegations. Tessa’s comments that everyone is human and make mistakes is true. Hopefully, she will be able to continue in the right direction to make up for some of those stories we’ve been hearing for the past day.
