Tessa Blanchard’s Impact World Title win was a big deal as the first female World Champion of a major pro wrestling company. Then COVID-19 had other plans.
Tessa Blanchard lives in Tijuana, Mexico with Daga. Her location outside of the United States made it impossible to attend Impact Wrestling’s last few television tapings. The company plans to address this situation next week.
The company revealed during this week’s episode of Impact that they will make a special announcement next week regarding the Impact World Title. Ace Austin won the #1 contender’s tournament, but the champion is unable to make the tapings.
We will have to see if Impact Wrestling makes the tough decision to end Blanchard’s title reign without her actually losing it.
