Tessa Blanchard has not been at any of the IMPACT tapings dating back to when the COVID-19 pandemic began. At IMPACT’s Rebellion pay-per-view, she was scheduled to defend the title in a Triple-Threat against Michael Elgin and Eddie Edwards. The event ultimately ended up being split into two nights and the two night event concluded with Moose crowning himself the new TNA World Heavyweight Champion.

Coming out of last week’s episode of IMPACT, there were teases that some of the recently released WWE talents could be arriving in IMPACT. To get a recap of this week’s episode, check out Davie Portman’s article about the show.
