Impact Wrestling superstar Tessa Blanchard has said how her last name does not allow her any privileges at all.
Responding to a fan saying she had been handed her success, Blanchard said how being the daughter of Horseman Tully Blanchard does not help her, but is not a bad thing.
Being generational is not a bad thing.— Tessa Blanchard (@Tess_Blanchard) June 3, 2018
My last name doesn’t take the bumps for me, doesn’t travel the miles for me, doesn’t set up the rings or get me up to train. My last name doesn’t squat 225 & bench 135 on an off day.
I’m handed everything because of my last name? Go on. https://t.co/pGKhs7gXuI
Blanchard also spoke on her tryout match with WWE in 2014, in an interview with Busted Open Radio.
She said: "After my WWE tryout in 2014, I was like ‘alright, I’m getting signed. I’m going to be there. I’m ready, let’s do this. It’s happening."
"When it didn’t happen I was heartbroken. I think it’s because God had a plan for me… If I would have gone and they would have signed me right away, I don’t think I would have had the life experiences or the experiences in wrestling.”
