Impact Wrestling superstar Tessa Blanchard has been making waves since joining the wrestling promotion, after making a name for herself on the indy circuit and competing in the inaugural WWE Mae Young Classic.
In an interview with Icon vs Icon, Blanchard discussed her decision to join the company.
“I want to do that while making a name for myself” Blanchard said, regarding building up what her family has done in the business. “To make a name for myself, I feel it’s important for me to establish myself before I go anywhere else. Impact has given me the platform, exposure and access to the tools and teachers to do that.”
“I feel like this is a great place for me right now. It feels good. It’s a good locker room and a good production.”
Chris Jericho Talks Offer from Impact Wrestling
Before signing with AEW, Chris Jericho had some interesting offers from New Japan and Impact Wrestling, who apparently made a hefty offer to Y2J.
“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar is to WWE, as far as what I bring to the table” Jericho said, during an appearance on Wrestling Observer Radio . That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince [McMahon], I want that kind of a deal.”
Jericho went on the detail the offer he received from Impact.
“When I was starting to talk with Tony [Khan, AEW], and New Japan, and Impact as well, Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures, they have some cash as well. When they believe in something, they have money for it.”
