Tessa Blanchard is a very popular female indie wrestler. She currently works for Impact Wrestling and will fight for the Impact World Title soon. She has fought some of the greatest female wrestlers of the world at Impact Wrestling.
Tessa Blanchard has even wrestled the extremely controversial, Joey Ryan. Joey fought her in an intergender match. Tessa won the match quite easily. Joey Ryan is also working for Impact Wrestling and has chosen to stay with the company, even though he is a very popular indie wrestler.
He could have gone to the WWE, but he stayed. Joey spoke to the media ahead of the Hard to Kill PPV. Joey praised Teass Blanchard. "I've known Tessa and Sami for a while now, but Tessa is a great wrestler to have to carry that flag," Ryan said.
"For me—I'm a little bit biased—my old tag team partner, Candice LeRae, is the best intergender wrestler I've ever witnessed, but where she's at now, she's not allowed to do that. So, I think Tessa being the face of intergender wrestler, she's a good representative of it.
Personally—because of what I think it would do for the business—I'm rooting for Tessa. I'm hoping she wins." Tessa will be facing the awesome Sami Callihan for the Impact World Title. If she wins, she will be the first female wrestler to win the Impact World Title in the promotion. It will also boost her credibility in the wrestling world.
