Tessa Blanchard Pulled From Indie Event Due To Controversy

Heavy Metal Wrestling issued a short statement on Twitter announcing that IMPACT superstar Tessa Blanchard has been removed from their January 24th Cease and Destroy event in San Antonio Texas, where Blanchard was scheduled to face Rok-C. The promotion states that they take the recent allegations made against the former Knockouts champion very serious, and will issue refunds to fans if necessary.

Tessa Blanchard has been removed from our scheduled event on January 24th, 2020. We take these allegations levied against her very seriously. An updated card will be released shortly. For refund information, please contact Walt@HeavyMetalWresting.com

Yesterday, NWA women's champion Allysin Kay and NXT star Chelsea Green called out Blanchard for racist remarks and bullying in response to Blanchard's tweet about women supporting each other. AEW's Big Swole backed up the story about Blanchard calling fellow black star La Rosa the N-word at a WrestleCade event, something that she addressed with Blanchard personally.

Blanchard later denied Green's allegations about bullying, stating that she's a different person now. She did however avoid media day ahead of tonight's IMPACT Hard To Kill pay per view, where she's facing off against Sami Callihan in a matchup for the world championship.
