NWA has Empowerrr coming up, but had been in contact with a big name free agent who has been out of action for quite some time.
Tessa Blanchard became a free agent over 14 months ago, and hasn't appeared for a major promotion since. Her only wrestling match came against Kylie Rae in September 2020, where she dropped the Warrior Wrestling Women's Title. Since then, she's relocated to Texas and is continuing training, but we're told that at least one promotion has been in contact with her.
Sources within the company confirmed to Fightful National Wrestling Alliance reached out to Blanchard this Summer to feel out the possibility of working together. We're not sure if the two sides came to terms, but there was a specific pitch given to Tessa Blanchard along the way.
