One wrestler who could be heading the opposite way is Tessa Blanchard.
The 24-year-old, daughter of WWE Hall of Famer Tully Blanchard, became the first woman to win a men’s male championship when she defeated Sami Callihan in January.
But she was axed by Impact last week, before her contract was due to expire on July 18.
Now, according to talkSPORT, WWE is her likely "landing spot".
Rival wrestling organisation AEW are also believed to be interested in Blanchard.ACCUSED OF RACISM
She had her title taken off her by Impact after having her contract terminated.
In a statement, the promotion said: “Impact Wrestling has confirmed that it has terminated its relationship with Tessa Blanchard and stripped her of the Impact Wrestling World Championship.”
No further details have been released with Tessa yet to comment.
It comes just weeks after Blanchard was accused of using a racial slur and bullying which she denied.
Blanchard tweeted: “Hey women, try supporting one another.

In response, former IMPACT wrestler Sienna, aka Allysin Kay, said: “Remember when you spat in a black woman’s face and called her the N-word in Japan? Was that you “supporting women“? The AUDACITY of this tweet.”
Blanchard hit back, saying “Not true. That’s my statement and the most attention I’ll give it because of how actually ridiculous it is.”
The woman in question, Puerto Rico star Black Rose, provided more detail on Twitter, saying : “If [Tessa Blanchard] do not Remember it … Can I. I am not a Mean Girl with any Coworkers around the world. [Being] kind of #racist is not ridiculous [it’s] a #sickness.”

Miami-Dade Police Officer Caught On Video Slapping Woman At MIA
Authorities say police had to be called to the American Airlines desk on Tuesday, June 30th, due to a disturbance involving a passenger.
The woman, identified as Paris S. Anderson, 21, was behind the rebooking counter and had been threatening employees, police said.
Upon arrival, police said they observed Anderson yelling obscenities at American Airlines employees.
The arrest report says an officer approached the rebooking counter and contacted Anderson. He then proceeded to walk the defendant away from the ticket counter in order to talk to Anderson.
The service center supervisor, Jose Roman, advised police that Anderson arrived at the gate late for a flight to Chicago and was denied boarding.
Anderson became upset when she was told that the next available flight would not be until the following day.
Roman told police that Anderson went behind the rebooking counter to retrieve her boarding pass and when she was told that she wasn’t allowed to be there she began to threaten and curse the employees.
Roman then told Anderson that she would not travel with American Airlines and that her fare would be reimbursed.
The arrest report says Anderson became belligerent when she was told to gather her belongings and began to yell obscenities at which time she said, referring to Roman, “I should go over there and punch him in his face.”
The report also said that Anderson was told again to gather her belongings so that she could be escorted. That was when Anderson aggressively approached the officer, “violating this officer’s personal space, bumped this officer with her body and struck this officer with her head on the chin while screaming, ‘What are you going to do.’ The officer immediately took a step back, struck Anderson on her left side of the face with an open hand.”
Legal documents say Anderson was taken to the floor, where she was taken into custody.
Police said Anderson was continuously yelling and turning back towards the officers as she was taken to the police car.
Additionally, police said, that the arresting “officer felt spittle emanating from Ms. Anderson’s mouth. Ms. Anderson was not wearing a face covering as she continued to turn around and yell, additional spittle came into the direction of the officers.”
The arrest report says the officer needed to forcibly grab her by the hair and keep her face pointing forward, in an effort to control her from continuing to spit in the area of the officers.
The report goes on to say that Anderson began to spit all over the protective shield and the backseat of the patrol car.
Miami-Dade Fire Rescue were called after Anderson complained of shortness of breath upon arrival at the police station, but Anderson refused treatment.
Anderson was transported to the Turner Guilford Correctional Center.
The officer involved was relieved of duty with pay, pending an internal investigation.
