Tessa Blanchard recently did an interview with Busted Open Radio and here are the highlights courtesy of

On how intergender wrestling has allowed her to be different: I think its really cool that women are given such a platform right now, and in different companies, youre seeing the first this and the first that, and the first this and the first that, and I think its so great, its so great for the evolution of womens wrestling and womens athletes all together. And one thing that stood out to me about all that was, at first I let it bother me a little bit, it would kind of give me an itch that, oh man, I want to be part of the first this and the first that and this to happen, but I want to be different. I want to make an impact on the business in a way that is different than anybody else has, and I feel like Impact is giving us the platform to do that through intergender wrestling which is really cool to me.

On if her match with Sami Callihan at Hard to Kill this Sunday deserves more attention: It has gotten a lot of attention, especially more recently. Maybe yes, maybe no, maybe it will after Sunday, because I think what were doing is really special. Sami and Is beef aside, I feel like what him and I, if you really look at it, what were able to do in wrestling altogether, were really breaking the mold, were shattering ceilings, its making people, its either disrupting them or people are supporting it. Its cool that were getting a reaction either way because its drawing awareness to intergender wrestling which we view as just pro-wrestling because were in the time in 2020 where women are looked at as athletes. Women can go out there and kill it better than men, if not, the same as men. Its a cool thing where we are in 2020. And for Sami and I to be looked at as kind of a bullet point in the evolution of it all is a really cool thing.
