Mae Young Classic competitor Tessa Blanchard was a recent guest on Busted Open Radio and during the interview, Tessa touched on her first-round performance against Kairi Sane. Blanchard had some high praises for the “Pirate Princess” stating that it was an honor to wrestle the Japanese great.
Check out the rest of Blanchard’s comments:
“It still doesn’t feel real. It was just such an honor to be out there with Kairi because her and I were supposed to have a singles match in Japan on two different occasions over the past two or three years. It didn’t happen due to just circumstances and the card changing. So her and I were talking and of all places in America, in a WWE ring, finally we get to have our singles match. That was really special for us. Watching it back, I was just completely overcome with emotion. The crowd was unreal, they were with us the entire time and the response we got was awesome. Kairi, she’s such a superstar. She really deserves to be seen by the world, she’s such a phenomenal talent. She’s honestly probably one of the best in the world. For her to be over here and have an opportunity with WWE, I’m very proud of her.”
