Impact Wrestling has fired former World Champion, Tessa Blanchard. Blanchard has officially been stripped of the title.
Impact Wrestling had this to say about Blanchard’s termination with the company:
Tessa has been quarantined in her Mexican residence since the start of the COVID-19 outbreak, slated to return to the promotion to defend her title at Slammiversary on July 18. She had been set to send taped promos for episodes of television to set up the five-way title match, but she never did, forcing the company to rework segments of their show on short notice. Blanchard has been a subject of contention throughout the year, with social media messages from former co-workers accusing her of racism just before she was set to win the gold at Hard to Kill this past January.
Daga, Blanchard’s fiance, is also quarantined in Mexico but still currently signed to a “multi-year” IMPACT contract as of this writing.
