Tessa Blanchard/Impact News, Rumor Killer on Banks, Jericho/NJPW
Impact Wrestling’s Redemption pay-per-view featured some quality wrestling and a few surprises as well. Perhaps one of the biggest surprises during the event last night saw the sudden debut of Tessa Blanchard. It may have seemed like a random debut for the daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard, especially since there have been reports lately stating that WWE is interested in possibly signing Tessa to a deal one day. However, the deal between Blanchard and Impact has been brewing for a while now. In fact, PWInsider has noted that Impact and Blanchard have been talking for about a year. It was also noted that Tessa is expected to work this week’s set of Impact Wrestling TV tapings.
Sasha Banks is undoubtedly one of the most popular female wrestlers on the entire WWE roster at the moment, which makes all of the sudden stops to her pushes and championship runs so perplexing. A lot of speculation over why the former Raw Women’s Champion has been the victim of stop and start pushes over the years has been cast, but there were a few rumors reported recently which claimed that Mike Johnson of PWInsider said that the reason for Sasha Banks never getting a proper push during her time on WWE’s main roster is due to her poor attitude backstage. Johnson has since posted a tweet online denying that he ever made those claims or reported that story.
Anyone claiming I reported Sasha Bank’s push was killed for attitude problems is incorrect. It was never a story I reported. Instead of asking me if I did, support @PWInsidercom and find out for yourself what I actually wrote, said and reported. Thank you.

It was certainly interesting to see Chris Jericho back in a New Japan Pro Wrestling ring earlier this year. Jericho, who traditionally competes for WWE, returned to NJPW earlier this year to face Kenny Omega at the WrestleKingdom 12 event. Although Jericho did not win the match, the match and buildup was praised by most fans, and it even received a five star rating from the Wrestling Observer’s Dave Meltzer. It seemed like Jericho was set to face Tetsuya Naito at a later NJPW event, but those plans were suddenly cancelled and Jericho hasn’t appeared in NJPW ever since then. During an interview with Chris Van Vliet on YouTube, Jericho admitted that he has no plans to return to NJPW right now, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be back at some other point in the future.
