Reports have surfaced that WWE are interested in signing former Impact World Champion and AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Tessa Blanchard.
According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Radio, WWE has “put out feelers” to find out if Blanchard is interested in joining the company. This report was later backed up by Tom Colohue who mentioned a number of people in WWE were suggesting hiring Blanchard when her contract was terminated by Impact Wrestling.
Blanchard, Daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard, has been scouted before but WWE passed on her due to reported “attitude problems”.
“She did not get a developmental deal there [in WWE] because of attitude issues I guess is how you would put it and she ended up in Impact. The reason [Impact] knew that they had her despite how talented she is a lot of people wanted to steer clear of her for all of the reasons that came out and she had a lot of enemies. She made a tweet and whatever the deal was it inflamed a lot of people from her past and they all came out.”Dave Meltzer – Wrestling Observer Radio
Blanchard, who has been the centre of several unsavoury accusations in recent months, would bolster a woman’s division currently lacking in main event talent due to the absence of Charlotte and Becky Lynch.
However with WWE currently in the midst of releasing some of their more “problematic” wrestlers would signing Blanchard be the best move?
