Tessa Blanchard had a media storm come at her a day before the biggest match of her career. She won the Impact World Title at Hard To Kill completing a long storyline in the process. There is a reason why she never ended up in WWE after the Mae Young Classic.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that WWE didn’t sign Tessa Blanchard to a contract years ago because of “attitude issues.” He went on to tell a short story about the impression she left during her WWE tryout.
“She did not get a developmental deal there [in WWE] because of attitude issues I guess is how you would put it and she ended up in Impact.”
“The reason [Impact] knew that they had her despite how talented she is a lot of people wanted to steer clear of her for all of the reasons that came out and she had a lot of enemies. She made a tweet and whatever the deal was it inflamed a lot of people from her past and they all came out.”
It was noted that “there was nobody in Impact who didn’t know those stories” about Tessa Blanchard. They didn’t change their plans since it had already been a year build toward the match. Now Tessa Blanchard is Impact World Champion and we’ll see how they carry on at this point.
