Despite any potential issues between Tessa Blanchard and IMPACT Wrestling when it comes to the return of the IMPACT World Title belt she possesses, Blanchard's side says the title is being sent back.
Fightful Select reported that Blanchard, the former IMPACT World Champion, and the company were figuring things out when it comes to the title belt. Blanchard's side disputed the notion that she demanded a large sum of money to return the belt. In addition, it is being claimed that the title is planned for a safe return.
Per Fightful Select:
Tessa Blanchard and IMPACT Wrestling are on the outs, and reports have emerged suggesting that she demanded a large sum of money to return the title. Her side of things has disputed that, and mentioned that not only did Tessa not try to hold up IMPACT, but that the company only provided an address to send the belt this week. They claim the title is planned for a safe return.
Fightful will also reach out to IMPACT on the matter.
Blanchard was let go by IMPACT weeks ago just as she was about to defend the IMPACT World Championship in the main event of Slammiversary on July 18. The main event was shuffled with Eric Young and Rich Swann replacing Blanchard and Michael Elgin and the title was eventually won by Eddie Edwards.
