Tessa Blanchard is the new IMPACT Knockouts Champion, just hours after tweeting that she was the uncrowned champion of IMPACT Wrestling.
The title change occurred at the recent television tapings for the promotion’s weekly shows in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. Blanchard challenged both Su Yung and Allie for the strap in a Triple Threat Match, coming away with gold after pinning the latter.
Whilst Su Yung was a popular choice for champion whilst her reign lasted, Tessa Blanchard is the MVP of IMPACT’s female roster and someone they would be wise to build the division and even the company around.
Tessa, daughter of Tully Blanchard, joined IMPACT Wrestling back in April and has recently signed a two year deal with the company. She had competed in the inaugural Mae Young Classic but never signed to a WWE contract. If you listen very carefully, that noise is WWE kicking themselves.
