Tessa Blanchard turned a lot of heads with her performance in the Mae Young Classic which is kind of a huge deal seeing how she only had one match. But her encounter with Kairi Sane was enough to not only put Sane over but make Blanchard took great as well.

The third-generation Blanchard is very proud of her family roots in the pro wrestling business and she has a big future ahead of her. At this rate the 22-year-old Blanchard has all of the ability to do everything she wants to in the business.

Blanchard recently got on Instagram where she explained the meaning behind the three stars on her boots.

A lot of fans have questioned her about this and she was more than willing to explain her design choice in a rather detailed Instagram message which read:

“For a while now people have asked about the three stars on my wrestling boots. I remember growing up, my grandpa would share stories of back in the day. He’d tell me how much I was loved & that God had such an undeniable plan for my life. He was the epitome of a good man, any negativity in this world he had a way of changing into an aura of positivity. My father grew up selling popcorn at my grandpa’s wrestling shows, refereeing matches & fast forward..all bias aside..through hard work, he is now a legend in our business. He shares a lot of the same qualities that my grandfather had. Both, WORKED & made their names…I aspire to be like them in many ways. I always heard, a legacy is not leaving something FOR people, it’s leaving something IN people. My grandfather, my father, my stepfather..they’ve certainly done just that. 4 years ago I decided I wanted to wrestle, that I wanted to be the third generation to continue my family’s legacy..and I was certain I didn’t want the “easy way.” As cliché as it sounds, the hard work attracted me. Natalya once told me, there’s never an exception for hard work. That’s stuck with me every day of my life. There’s not a day that goes by I don’t wish my grandpa could have seen me out there; seen me do what I have fallen in love with. Once you know what you want your legacy to be, you can start building it. You can start living in the way you want to be remembered. It’ll allow you to start doing what matters, now. What’s important to you? What are your values? How do you want your life to touch others? What would make you proud? How can you leave your mark on whatever you do? These are questions I ask myself regularly, it allows my creative mind to run wild. As wrestlers, we wrestle with more than just our opponent. We wrestle with the demons of doubt, with past failures, with injuries and exhaustion, with that unrelenting voice telling you to stop…this all brings me back to my boots…my dad had two, I have three. Three generations; three stars. Every time I lace up my boots, I remember why I started. Every time I make my way to the ring, I get to look forward to the future. Everything we do now is building for tomorrow.”

Seeing how Tessa Blanchard is so popular her appearance at WrestleCade would obviously bring a lot of people to her table. But it appears she won’t be attending this year.

One fan asked WrestleCade on Twitter if Tessa Blanchard would be at the popular fan event and even though she won’t be there, Tessa will still be plenty busy.

It turns out Austrailia is on her bucket list so she’s taking the opportunity to perform down under.
