Impact Wrestling has bolstered their Knockouts division in a big way with the addition of 3rd generation wrestler Tessa Blanchard to the roster.
Blanchard joined Josh Matthews and Don Callis during tonight’s Redemption PPV during a match between Taya Valkyrie and Kiera Hogan to confirm that she will be competing for the company, announcing that “Impact needs Tessa Blanchard.”

Daughter of legendary Four Horsemen member Tully Blanchard, the 22-year-old out of Charlotte, North Carolina has been making waves on the indie scene over the past year where she has won multiple championships while competing for just about every meaningful promotion out there.
According to recent reports, WWE had shown interested in bringing in Blanchard with the 2nd annual Mae Young Classic on the horizon. Blanchard competed in last year’s MYC where she would be eliminated in the 1st round by eventual winner Kairi Sane.
