    I saw that Tessa Blanchard burned yet another bridge and got fired from Impact and their title is now vacant.

    I saw that too today. When her non-compete clause expires, wonder if she'll go to AEW where her father is.

    I wonder if they'll have her? She's been difficult everywhere she's been, that's how someone that talented can't find steady employment.

    But I can't help but to wonder if this wasn't by design to get out of her current deal so she could become the face of AEW's weak women's division?

    As you mentioned, her Dad works there so it would be pretty easy to send a behind the scenes 'offer'.

    I'm not sure whether or not he'd pick up the phone. She was troublesome there before.

    The talent is there, but so are the issues.

    If I had to bet, I'd say she's bound for AEW. She could step in there tomorrow and be at the top of their women's division.

    Impact hardly has anyone left. AEW got Brian Cage.

    Whoever hires Tessa, could be bringing a cancer to the locker room.

    Someone mentioned the release of wrestlers in another thread. Looks like NXT is about to release Velveteen Dream. He had a car accident a few days ago, and some of the women have come forward and said he has said and done improper things in the locker room.

    I like that idea.

    BTW, in case you haven't heard, it'll be Sasha Banks vs. Io Shirai this Wednesday on NXT.

    I just saw that Tessa Blanchard does not have a non-compete clause in her contract. She could go to work for AEW or the WWE today if she wanted.

    In what is a surprise to me, I read that WWE has already expressed interest in Blanchard while AEW has apparently not.

    Given the top women that have recently stepped away in WWE, there’s definitely room for someone to fill the void.

    I'm surprised that the WWE has expressed interest in her. Didn't she wrestle for them early in her career?

    She did. In one or both of the Mae Young Classic tournaments where a lot of the women ended up getting hired.

    There are rumors of issues there between her and then boyfriend Ricochet but she denies them so nothing is certain.

    There can't be too much if they're this interested this quickly.

    Yiu could never prove it, but it wouldn't shock me if part of the reason she's out of Impact is because she had some form of contact from WWE.

    It was my understanding from reading some things online that some women from IMPACT came forward and said she was a bully and a racist in the locker room. I don't know.

    In the brief time she was with NXT, she was 0 for 4 in matches. She lost against Bliss, Nia, Carmella, and Kairi Sane. I think she has more ring savvy now. With Flair and Lynch on the shelf now, the women's division could use someone.
