IMPACT Wrestling’s Tessa Blanchard recently spoke with Busted Open Radio about Slammiversary XVII and main eventing the PPV. Below are some highlights with a H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.
Blanchard admitted that she wasn’t aware she was closing the PPV until the day of the show:
“Oh, I loved Slammiversary. It was just… it was a really neat thing. I didn’t expect to be in the main event. I didn’t know that they were gonna change everything and put us in the main event. So that was really, really cool for me. A girl has never done that in IMPACT yet so, that was really neat. Its been a important thing for me this year — I really wanna make history in my own way so it’s like a little baby step towards doing that I feel like.” She said.
Bully Ray also asked if she was scared about wrestling Sami Callihan:
“You know, someone asked me that before but, I don’t think I was really because, I’m used to being in there with the guys and I know that Sami’s aggressive and now I know better than anyone that Sami is so aggressive. He’s one of the most aggressive people I’ve ever been in the ring with but, I feel like I’m confident enough in myself to get in there and hold my own because I can be just as aggressive, in my own way.” She explained.
