LOS ANGELES – Jan. 4, 2020 – In a year highlighted by many great achievements in IMPACT Wrestling, groundbreaking superstar Tessa Blanchard took home the 2019 IMPACT! Year End Awards’ top honor tonight, becoming the first woman ever to win IMPACT! Wrestler of the Year, as announced on a special edition of IMPACT! on AXS TV.
Blanchard and 2018 Wrestler of the Year Sami Callihan were also awarded the coveted IMPACT! Match of the Year for their historic intergender match at “Slammiversary 2019” in July. Blanchard will continue to make history next Sunday, Jan. 12 when she takes on reigning champion Callihan at IMPACT’s next event “Hard To Kill” in Dallas, the first time in pro wrestling history that a woman will challenge for a promotion’s top championship live on pay-per-view.
Reigning Tag Team Champions The North, Ethan Page and Josh Alexander, were named Tag Team of the Year, honoring the Canadian duo’s domination of the tag team division since winning the title in July. The North will look to defend their title at “Hard To Kill” against fan-favorites Willie Mack and Rich Swann.
