• Backstage News On Tessa Blanchard’s WWE & AEW Status
Former IMPACT Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Tessa Blanchard, daughter of Old School NWA/WWF Legend Tully Blanchard and stepdaughter of Magnum T.A., is considered the #1 free agent out of all female pro-wrestlers worldwide.
“A WWE source, when asked, did not want fans expecting Blanchard to be the act or a part of it, but understood how the misconception could happen.
Diamond Mine is being played close to the vest within the company.”
Obviously, Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling should be interested in this talented wrestler as well, right? However, that’s not the case.
Dave Meltzer addressed that rumor on his Wrestling Observer Radio show:
“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.”
