Tessa Blanchard Accused Of Trying To ‘Strong Arm’ Higher-Ups To Win At All In?

Tessa Blanchard, who has been announced for the Women of Wrestling (WOW) reboot, has been hit by another accusation.

While this one isn’t as bad as some of the previous accusations that people have made against her, it’s still a bad look and another to add to the list.

On her latest Green With Envy podcast, Chelsea Green said that Tessa Blanchard tried to wear her IMPACT Title to the ring at the All In pay-per-view, which Green believed was an attempt from Blanchard to make herself look better than her opponents, and to possibly “strong arm” higher-ups into making sure she won.

The match at All In was a four-way between Green, Blanchard, Britt Baker and Madison Rayne, which Blanchard ended up winning.

Green said:

“We didn’t know who was winning the match until the day of All In, until the afternoon actually. Tessa, who was in our match, brought her f**king IMPACT title to the show and tried to come out with it. In my mind, it was a way to look better than all of us. Bringing out a title, being the only person to come to the ring with a title, the fans are obviously immediately going to put you above the rest.

“Also, I feel like she did it because she knew that if she came out with the title, she couldn’t lose the title on the show. She couldn’t lose the title on a show that wasn’t IMPACT Wrestling. At that time, there was no way that would happen. Nowadays, f**k, the door is open. Anyone can wrestle anywhere and anyone can win or lose any title in any (company). A couple of years ago, that wouldn’t happen.

“That would have been a way of strong arming the higher-ups into letting her win. Funny enough, she still did win, but we all collectively made sure she didn’t come out with the title and that we all came out as equals.”

Blanchard joining WOW was met with a lot of criticism, which only became even more pronouced after there was a t-shirt released seemingly mocking the past accusations that have been made against her and her “nuclear” reputation.
