Tessa Blanchard was released from Impact Wrestling as their World Champion. What followed was a year of sitting at home for Blanchard as she waited for her marriage with Daga to come around. The two are now married, but neither have arrived in a new pro wrestling home just yet.
There was a report out that AEW is close to inking a deal with Daga and Tessa Blanchard. We’re not certain about Daga’s case, but Blanchard’s situation seems to be cleared up now.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer stated that there is no negotiating going on between AEW and Blanchard. There are plenty of people asking about this, but there’s nothing to the situation.
“I do have to make mention before we go that AEW is not negotiating with Tessa Blanchard. I know people keep asking me about this, and in fact there is nothing to it, so that’s the deal.”
Tessa’s absence from the pro wrestling world is still quite curious. She is one of the best women’s wrestlers right now, but she’s not working anywhere. We’ll have to see what’s next for her, but AEW is apparently not her destination after all.
