Wrestling legend Booker T wants to see the WWE sign Tessa Blanchard.
Blanchard was recently fired by Impact Wrestling after refusing to send in promos or give up her world championship. Speculation is high amongst the wrestling community on which organization she will sign with next. Booker T believes Blanchard should join the likes of Charlotte Flair in the WWE.
“Now, the name, ‘Tessa Blanchard,’ man, that’s money. We can do something with this anywhere in the world. Tessa Blanchard, she’s a catch in anybody’s company if they can get her right now. If WWE picked Tessa Blanchard up along with Charlotte Flair? I wish Hulk Hogan’s daughter had stayed and her name would be right there — that’s what I want to see. I wanted to see the second generation with all women, and Tessa Blanchard is one of them. To be able to slide right in there, she’s gonna be a star immediately. We’re gonna get a chance to see how good Tessa Blanchard really is. That’s something that I’ve always wondered myself when I was working in other companies especially before I got into WWE. Can I show these guys that I am the real deal? In my head, I thought I could do that. I proved it in the long run. Tessa Blanchard is gonna have the chance to do the same thing.” Booker T explained on his podcast.
The WWE Hall of Famer believes it’s Impact Wrestling’s loss for firing Blanchard.
“I don’t know what happened, but I think it’s gonna be a loss for Impact more than it’s gonna be a loss for Blanchard because Tessa, I really think she can work anywhere in the world with any of the women out there in the business today. And she’s made herself, first and foremost, she’s never gone to WWE. She hasn’t gotten the rub from people in WWE for people to know Tessa Blanchard’s name around the world. She done that on her own, and for her to do that, I give her big props. Hopefully, WWE can snatch her up, and we can see some great matches with her and Charlotte Flair.” he said.
Booker doesn’t think it would be a wise move for Blanchard to go to AEW and is adamant it needs to be WWE that she signs with.
“I think in AEW she’ll be a huge fish in a small pond. I think for Tessa Blanchard to really go out there and put a stamp on the business, she’s gonna have to go to WWE. She’s gonna have to go there and perform at the highest level under the brightest lights to become as great as I think she wanna be.” he said.
