Tessa Blanchard is the current Impact Knockouts Champion and is a big name at Impact Wrestling. She recently had an interview with Wrestling Epicenter. They asked her about her experience wrestling Taya Valkyrie: "As far as Taya, Taya has had opportunity after opportunity after opportunity at my title.
She always comes up short. But hey, she's married to the champion - The Heavyweight Champion! So, lets keep giving her a shot, right? That's fine. Whatever. She's one of the Knockouts that always takes me to my limits in different ways than I would expect.
But while Taya is so good, she is still no diamond. She is still no Tessa Blanchard. I am one of the best in the world! This Sunday, everyone is going to see that." She also gave her thoughts on the upcoming PPV event; "Everything about Impact Wrestling last year was on an upswing.
We've been able to lock down talents that are the top independent talents in wrestling right now - Pentagon, Fenix, Sami Callihan, Brian Cage, it has been huge! Impact, right now, is bigger than ever. No matter what station we're on, people go to find Impact Wrestling.
The Homecoming card is loaded! You've got Taya and myself, you've got LAX and the Lucha Brothers, Ultimate X is back, Eli Drake is one of the best in the world and he's wrestling Abyss, and then, in the main event, you have got Johnny (Impact) and Brian (Cage). The whole entire card is loaded!"
