Ryan McKinnell of Busted Open Radio is reporting that Tessa Blanchard is done with IMPACT Wrestling, and could be heading to either WWE or AEW.
Blanchard is without doubt one of the most gifted wrestlers on the planet, and is one of IMPACT’s biggest stars, so her departure will have a huge impact on the promotion if the report is true.
Tessa Blanchard’s contract with IMPACT is apparently up. Does she stay or does she go?
I’m certainly not one to say. However, I can’t help but feel like the AEW’s women’s division could use a kick. And let’s not forget, that’s where Tully is. Seems like a natural fit, no?

While WWE would probably be able to offer her more money, there is a rather personal reason that could convince her to choose AEW. Her daddy.
Tully Blanchard is working as a manager for Shawn Spears on AEW at the moment, so his influence could be huge in convincing Tessa to sign.
Blanchard has of course wrestled for WWE before, appearing sparingly on NXT in 2016 and during the 2017 Mae Young Classic, where she lost in the first round to eventual winner Kairi Sane.
Where is she going?
