Heavy Metal Wrestling Pulls Tessa Blanchard From January 24 Event

Heavy Metal Wrestling announced Tessa Blanchard has been pulled from its Jan. 24 event 'Cease & Destroy.'

The news comes out in light of accusations of bullying and racism made against Blanchard on Saturday. Heavy Metal Pro stated they take the allegations levied at Blanchard "very seriously," which is the reason they decided to pull her from the show. Blanchard was scheduled to face Rok-C.

The accusations against Blanchard were started by Allysin Kay, who tweeted at Tessa, "Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N-word in Japan?" From there, the likes of Chelsea Green, Priscilla Kelly, Isla Dawn, and others stepped forward to share their own stories of being bullied by Blanchard or stories of them witnessing her bullying.

Blanchard denied the accusations. You can find a full recap of the events by clicking here.
