Earlier today, Tessa Blanchard, who will wrestle Sami Callihan for the Impact world championship at Hard to Kill tomorrow night, posted this:
Hey women, try supporting one another. Cool things happen.— Tessa Blanchard (@Tess_Blanchard) January 11, 2020
Seems like a positive, good thing to tweet, right?
You’ve consistently put down, bullied, and belittled countless female coworkers, including me. Is that support? https://t.co/MrOOksiijk— CHELSEA GREEN (@ImChelseaGreen) January 11, 2020
Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N-word in Japan? Was that you “supporting women“? The AUDACITY of this tweet https://t.co/P49uNWsqIH— Allysin Kay (@Sienna) January 11, 2020
Remember publicly putting me down on twitter last year for something that didn’t involve you whatsoever, then continuing to drag my name to other people for it?— Priscilla Kelly (@priscillakelly_) January 11, 2020
Pepperidge Farm Remembers.
You should probably delete this tweet. https://t.co/MnsHVnwavU

I like to think people change over time. But I can confirm the bad behavior & non supportive attitude in Japan, I was there https://t.co/u1e60bgdE6— REBEL/ Tanea (@RebelTanea) January 11, 2020
As someone who experienced your bullying firsthand, received regular verbal abuse, was spat on, had rumours spread about me, dealt with multiple attempts by you to blacklist me from other companies, (plus more), I just pray you now follow your own advice. https://t.co/MWtmUKLOyf— Isla Dawn (@IslaDawn) January 11, 2020
There was at least one person who wondered about the timing of the criticism in response to Tessa:
For her part, Tessa had this to say in response:
I’ve never been anything but kind to u. I’ve dealt with mean girls since I started..not saying I’m a saint, hell I’ve had my ups&downs & Ive made silly decisions...Such is life. u have ZERO merit in your comments..Instead putting me down here for a little clout...you’ve got my #! https://t.co/wBxvnnUx4G— Tessa Blanchard (@Tess_Blanchard) January 11, 2020
not true. That’s my statement and the most attention I’ll give it because of how actually ridiculous it is.— Tessa Blanchard (@Tess_Blanchard) January 11, 2020
There has been no comment from Impact Wrestling on the matter and the main event of tomorrow night’s show will go on as planned.
