• WWE Interested In Signing Former Impact Wrestling World Champion
The first ever female IMPACT World Champion, Tessa Blanchard, was fired from IMPACT Wrestling last week due to her being stuck in Mexico and not doing promos for the company, when they asked her to do so.
Blanchard is one of the biggest female wrestlers in the pro wrestling world right now, and all the big promotions are looking to sign her.
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE is interested in signing her, as they have “sent out feelers” to contact Tessa about working with them.
It was noted that if WWE signs her, there won’t be much backlash, but people will go berserk on AEW signing her.
