Tessa Blanchard Discusses Growing As A Person; Wants To Have Fun In Wrestling Again

Tessa Blanchard is no stranger to controversy in her young career; however, it appears that she is focused on growth and change at this stage in the game. During a recent appearance on “McGuire on Wrestling,” Blanchard explained where she is at personally and professionally currently.

“It’s a constant process, right? I’m not who I was a year ago, ten years ago, it’s a constant process, but we have to be aware of it or else we get caught up in the business and the comments and all that B.S.,” Blanchard said. “We’re in this constant phase of growth. I’m proud of myself, I’m proud of a lot of my friends. I’m glad for where I am, I’m glad to be on this tour and to just have fun in wrestling again because fun has been sucked out of so much of it, at least in my opinion.”

The 27-year old Tessa was heavily criticized in 2020 when several wrestlers stepped forward on Twitter with allegations of bullying on the same day Tessa was scheduled to win the Impact World Championship. Months later, after denying accusations that she used a racial slur, Blanchard was stripped of the Impact title and her contract was terminated due to other issues backstage during the COVID-19 era.

Just recently, Blanchard and La Rosa Negra shared that amends have been made between the two during WrestleMania weekend in Los Angeles.

Prior to this month, Blanchard had only worked seven matches on the independent scene since her departure from Impact Wrestling. However as of recent, she is now touring Canada with the promotion Canadian Wrestling’s Elite.
