IMPACT Notes: Plans For Tessa Blanchard, Brian Cage Working Hurt, LAX Status and more

-Former Knockouts champion Tessa Blanchard is expected to receive a sizable push going forward. Her intergender main event with Sami Calliahn at Sunday’s Slammiversary was also not the end of that story, with Blanchard slotted for another major matchup at Bound For Glory. She and Callihan received massive praise for the bout from fans and fellow wrestlers.

-World champion Brian Cage worked his title matchup against Michael Elgin with severe back pain, and is still not 100% since suffering the injury against Johnny Impact at Rebellion.

-No confirmation on what’s next for LAX (Santana and Ortiz), but IMPACT is still making it a top priority on re-signing the former tag champions, with “big money” being offered. AEW is a top alternative option, especially with the promotion’s focus on tag team wrestling.

-IMPACT is still working on a new TV deal and was hoping to have something to announce soon. Until then, they’re able to stay on Pursuit indefinitely, but it wouldn’t be in their best interest considering the amount of issues they’ve had with the network.
