Tessa Blanchard will not be fazed by the pomp, circumstance or grandeur of the Mae Young Classic.
The daughter of WWE Hall of Famer and iconic Four Horsemen member Tully Blanchard, granddaughter of Joe Blanchard and stepdaughter of Magnum T.A., Tessa is a branch on a truly legendary family tree. But she hasn’t relied on her surname to reach the heights she’s reached. Inspired to pursue the family trade after watching her father’s 2012 WWE Hall of Fame induction, Tessa debuted in 2014 and has traveled far and wide —including China and the Maritimes — to establish her own identity.
With her pedigree as impressive as anyone’s in the field, her skillset only becoming vaster by the day, and her confidence as high as her father’s in his prime, it’s a safe bet that Tessa Blanchard will make serious noise in the Classic.
