TNA Wrestling appears to be considering the possibility of bringing Tessa Blanchard back to the promotion, reigniting discussions about her potential return after her historic reign as the company’s world champion in 2020. However, her departure from TNA in June of that year, amidst allegations of bullying, marked an abrupt end to her tenure.

Recent reports from PWInsider Elite suggest that preliminary discussions have taken place within TNA regarding Blanchard’s return, prompting speculation that she may have been the anticipated “lights out” surprise at the Rebellion event. Ultimately, the surprise unveiling turned out to be “Broken” Matt Hardy, who made a dramatic return to confront TNA World Champion Moose.

While these discussions indicate a potential interest in Blanchard’s return, there is no confirmation that TNA has reached out to her directly at this time.

Blanchard’s tumultuous history includes allegations of bullying from several female wrestlers, including current WWE star Chelsea Green, as well as accusations of using racial slur towards La Rosa Negra during her time in Japan in 2017. Despite denying the racial slur allegation and publicly reconciling with La Rosa Negra, Blanchard has not been associated with a major US promotion since her departure from TNA. However, she has remained active on the independent circuit, notably in Mexico with CMLL and AAA.


As discussions continue within TNA, the potential return of Blanchard to the promotion raises questions about her future in the wrestling industry and the impact her presence could have on the landscape of professional wrestling.
