Tessa Blanchard Re-Enters The Ring After A Long Absence

With walkouts, the MJF circumstance, multiple injuries, and the latest scandal involving now-former WWE chairman Vince McMahon, some would say the professional wrestling world has been a little crazy recently. So why not throw in a Tessa Blanchard comeback after a nearly two-year absence?

New reports announced Blanchard’s return to the squared circle earlier on Canada Day in a tweet. Hurricane Pro Wrestling isn’t messing around! The tweet stated. Tessa Blanchard is back, and she’s streaming LIVE. The tweet disclosed a poster with Blanchard front and centre, but no matches were found. Former Impact Wrestling Knockout Lady Frost, former WWE NXT celebrity Steph De Lander, and former Ring of Honor star Miranda Alize were also featured on the poster.

Frost would protect her HPW Women’s Title against De Lander and Danni Bee, according to an earlier tweet from Hurricane Pro Wrestling, ruling them out as potential Blanchard opponents. Hurricane Pro Wrestling, based in Beaumont, Texas, had been teasing a big announcement on social networking sites last night before finally telling that Blanchard will be on the show.

Tweet Details

HPW’s account tweeted, “Shocking the wrestling world is always a good thing,” accompanied by some hourglass emojis. This will be Blanchard’s 1st fight since losing the Warrior Wrestling Women’s title to Kylie Rae at the first event of Warrior Wrestling’s Stadium series in Sept. of 2020. She further got engaged in the re – launch of WOW Wrestling, but she emerged to leave the promo after a disagreement.

Blanchard was once regarded as one of the industry’s fastest-rising stars when she was a member of Impact Wrestling, where she was a former Knockouts Champion and held the Impact Wrestling World Championship after having defeated Sami Callihan at Hard to Kill in January 2020. After Blanchard took leave during COVID-19 pandemic, her contract was terminated in June of that year, and the title was stripped from her.

Blanchard’s absence from wrestling, as well as the apparent lack of interest from top promotions such as AEW and WWE, has been attributed largely to accusations that Blanchard harrassed and used a racial slur against wrestler La Rosa Negra whereas the two were touring Japan’s World Wonder Ring Stardom in 2017. Blanchard has denied the accusations.
