Tessa Blanchard wrestled her last televised match at the Impact Wrestling/AAA event Lucha Invades NY in September of last year. In January, multiple wrestlers spoke out against Blanchard with allegations of bullying and racism. Women of Wrestling hired Blanchard to be their top star last year. Now, it appears a recent falling out as lead to WOW to split ties with Blanchard.

Brad Shepard reported on his Unleashed Patreon that WOW has released Blanchard. Sources told Shepard that Blanchard is moving back to Texas because of the proverbial bridge with the company has been burned. Blanchard originally was suspended by the company after butting heads with AJ Lee. Blanchard was also said to be using profanities against talent while training. After talent spoke to WOW Owner Jeanie Bush, a investigation occurred which led to Blanchard’s suspension.

Shepard is also reporting that new CBS wasn’t impressed with the new talent brought into the company and have asked for Blanchard to be brought back. This ultimately led to a lot of talent who didn’t get along with Tessa to be brought back, and at least some have said they wouldn’t return as long as Blanchard was still there.

Shepard had reached out to both parties for a comment but has not heard nothing back. As for WOW, a official statement has yet to made.
