UPDATE: As we reported earlier today here on eWn, there appears to be some issues between Tessa Blanchard and WOW – Women of Wrestling. The two sides reportedly had a “falling out” recently and some of the talent in WOW feel like Blanchard is no longer working for the company.
Following the reports surfacing, Blanchard took to her Instagram stories and shared a post from San Antonio Pastor Matt Hagee, which read,
“When standing up for your beliefs becomes a matter of great inconvenience, will you stand anyway?”
For what it’s worth, Blanchard recently deactivated her Twitter account and is only active on Instagram these days.
ORIGINAL: Tessa Blanchard signed with WOW Wrestling last October when they got a syndication TV deal with ViacomCBS. It was her landing spot after being fired by Impact Wrestling in 2020.
Fightful Select has learned of allegations of issues surrounding Blanchard and WOW, which came after she deactivated her social media.
It was said there has been a bit of a falling out between the two sides and her status for this week’s tapings is unknown. Many people in the promotion seem to think that both sides have more power within wrestling than they actually do.
There was an incident last month where Blanchard cut a promo on wrestler Samantha Sage, who is known as Americana and she tore her apart with her words, leading to many speaking up. The classes were canceled from that point until further notice and the belief is that Blanchard will be less involved moving forward, although that is not confirmed.
Another source stated that Blanchard is no longer in charge of training talent, and Selina Majors has been brought back to handle that moving forward.
One former star speculated that Blanchard is gone from the company, but that’s not confirmed.
