Last Friday, Women of Wrestling (WOW) debuted their first episode of the season on AXS TV, marking their return to network television for the first time since 2001.
The premiere episode was a success, with fans and critics expressing their eagerness for more episodes of WOW.
This season, Tessa Blanchard, the former Impact Knockouts Champion and legacy, makes her debut on WOW for their fifth season, and it’s clear from the first episode, Blanchard will play a huge part in the title landscape. As seen in the above video promo, Blanchard is out for WOW Champion Santana Garrett‘s blood.
Ahead of their second episode, set to air Friday, Jan. 25 at 9 p.m. EST, WOW and AXS TV released a first look at Tessa Blanchard’s backstory and official in-ring debut. In the video, Blanchard aims to refute the claim that she’s only in wrestling because of her family, stating that as a “born legend”, she still has to “back it up.”
“If people get in my way, I steamroll through them,” Blanchard says. “Here at WOW, I want that Championship.
Blanchard can also be seen in the video in ring fighting The Beverly Hills Babe, Amber O’Neal.
