Tessa Blanchard sparked a lot of discussion this weekend, not only for his shot at the IMPACT title, but allegations laid against her from former co-workers. Blanchard was accused of bullying fellow wrestlers in the past, and saying racist remarks.

During a press conference earlier in the night, Knockouts Champion Taya Valkyrie stated she would be challenging Blanchard if she captured the World Championship.

The pay-per-view ended immediately after the match was over.

After the event went off air, Tessa Blanchard addressed the crowd, somewhat addressing the controversy surrounding her.
