Blanchard Challenges Taya, Next Week’s IMPACT, Santos Debuts

July 11, 2020 0 By HearthstoneYarns

In the video below, IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie made her first appearance since winning the title against Tessa Blanchard at this month’s IMPACT Homecoming PPV. Valkyrie put the entire division on notice that if they want a shot at the title, she is there to defend it. She specifically called out Blanchard, who is currently suspended from the show for attacking Gail Kim. Blanchard jumped on Twitter to respond to the champion, as seen below:

“She talks so much when I’m not there to do actually something about it,” Blanchard said. “Impact management suspend me because they wanted to punish me for what I did to Gail Kim, they wanted me to sit at home and think about it. Yeah, well I thought about it and I loved it. If I had to do it again, I would. Because at Homecoming, Gail Kim screwed me! And if it wasn’t for her, I’d still be the Knockouts Champion. So, Taya, you can enjoy this big return to Mexico because on February 15, my suspension is lifted and I’m going to return to Mexico and take what’s mine. You want to be a fighting champion? How about on February 15, you fight me.”

On Feb 15 @IMPACTWRESTLING lifts my suspension & I want my Championship back. See ya in Mexico, “Champ.”
