Last Friday night, Tessa Blanchard earned a rematch against Sami Callihan. The two teamed up to win Tag Team Mash-Up Tournament, which set up a No. 1 contender’s match for the IMPACT World Championship at the next pay-per-view event—Unbreakable.
According to the official press release:
Sami vs. Tessa II will go down live at Unbreakable on IMPACT+ on Friday, August 2nd and the winner becomes Number 1 Contender for the World Title.
The first match between Sami Callihan and Tessa Blanchard was nothing short of an instant classic. While they made history, it was hardly the outcome that Tessa Blanchard was looking for, but the fans in Dallas left her in tears as they applauded her efforts after Slammiversary came to its conclusion.
However, this time it will be for a chance to challenge for the World Title. The winner of this will be Number 1 Contender for the World Title. There is now a path for Tessa Blanchard to get to the IMPACT Wrestling World Championship. However, first she will have to get past Sami Callihan and the vile leader of oVe has never won Championship gold in his career in IMPACT Wrestling.
Blanchard and Callihan’s first match at Slammiversary was a big step forward for intergender wrestling. This rematch offers the third-generation star a chance for redemption, as well as the chance to break the glass ceiling for women’s wrestlers. A win at Unbreakable would be a historic moment.
Getting an opportunity to headline two events in a row is a big deal alone, but Tessa could conceivably go on to challenge for the Impact World Championship. This feat would add to the 23-year-old’s growing resume and instantly set her apart from her contemporaries.
IMPACT Unbreakable will stream live on IMPACT+ in two weeks. Be sure to check back with Bell to Belles for more updates.
