During a media call today, Impact Wrestling Champion Tessa Blanchard addressed the accusations that she used a racial slur to another wrestler. Here is what Blanchard said courtesy of CagesideSeats.com:
ďWith everything that went on that weekend, not everyoneís gonna like me. Not everyoneís gonna agree with what I choose to do in my life. Iíve made mistakes, Iíve faced challenges. One thing I will say though is Iíve never used a racial slur of any kind. Itís just not in my heart, itís not something that Iíve done, itís not something that I will do. Itís just not true.
Some people they look at social media and someone will make an accusation, someone will say something, and then everyone hops on the bandwagon.Ē
ďItís very unfortunate that some people resort to saying certain things but itís just not true...to see your co-workers and to see your peers say things about you and some things that are just not true about you, it did hit me very hard, but Iím the kind of person who I have extreme mental strength.Ē
