TNA Wrestling Considering Bringing Back Controversial Star TNA Wrestling

There have been talks about a controversial name potentially returning to TNA Wrestling.

The April 20 Rebellion pay-per-view event saw several stars return to the company, including Mike Santana and Matt Hardy.

Per PWInsider Elite (via Wrestling Inc) ahead of Saturday’s Rebellion show, multiple sources have confirmed that TNA had preliminary discussions in recent weeks about the potential return of Tessa Blanchard.

The report noted that it’s currently unknown whether or not she and TNA Wrestling have came to terms on a new deal.

An update noted that Blanchard was not spotted backstage at the Rebellion event.

Blanchard wrestled for TNA Wrestling from 2018 to 2020, with the star notably becoming the first female TNA/IMPACT World Champion in January 2020.

She was released from her TNA contract in June 2020 and stripped of the IMPACT World Championship in June 2020 after the two sides could not agree on terms for her return.

Tessa Blanchard, who’s currently based in Mexico, has been wrestling for CMLL since October 2023.

Despite Matt Hardy attacking TNA World Champion Moose at Rebellion, Hardy has revealed that he’s not actually signed to TNA Wrestling.
