IMPACT Knockouts Champion Tessa Blanchard was recently interviewed on “Busted Open Radio” and discussed Austin Aries’ departure at “Bound For Glory.” Here are some of the highlights from Blanchard’s comments:
Her thoughts on Aries no-selling the ending of his match with Johnny Impact: “I agree with a lot of what Brian [Cage] said earlier. I think it was just a lot of Austin being Austin. I honestly don’t really know what to think about it. Just watching it, I’m kind of at a loss for words, I guess? ‘Cause I don’t know what to think.”
Did she ask questions after it happened: “To myself, yeah, of course. I’m sure everyone had a lot of questions. There’s a lot of uncertainty. The whole locker room was kind of not really sure what was going on, I guess. But yeah, I honestly I’m very indifferent ’cause I don’t know what to think.”
If Aries disrespected the locker room with his actions: “To an extent, yes. I’m not really sure what Austin was trying to accomplish. Brian said it before, I think if the roles were reversed and Austin was sitting in the locker room watching that happen, I’m sure he would feel disrespected, I’m sure he would not be so happy.
“He would have some things to say and some questions. So if the roles were reversed, I’m sure he would be in the same position as the whole locker room kind of felt, I think.”
