In Impact Wrestling, Tessa Blanchard is the current Impact World Champion in her first reign as well as the first woman to win the title. She is also a former one-time Impact Knockouts Champion, one-time The Crash Women's Champion, one-time AAA Reina de Reinas Champion, and one-time WOW Champion.
Speaking to WrestlingInc.com., she discussed combining the titles: “Never say never. Anything is possible. I’m in this to break stereotypes. I wanna grow as an athlete and I wanna wrestle some of the best in the world and some of the best in the world happen to be female.
I take Taya and Ace very seriously as competitors. I take a lot of our whole locker room very seriously because they’re so talented. I’m all for it if that’s something that were to happen down the line. Impact has proven that we don’t look at it as intergender wrestling as we just look at it as pro wrestling.
That might make some people uncomfortable because it’s not what they’re used to. But it is our outlook. I’m gonna be a fighting champion. I wanna face guys and girls because I don’t look at it like that.
It’s not intergender wrestling, it’s just pro wrestling. Some of my favorite matches have been against girls and some of my favorite matches have been against guys. I’m all for it. If that’s something that were to happen in the future – cool. If it’s not, then it’s cool too. Whatever happens, I’m all for it”.
