Maybe in 2020 they can find her some more viable female competition, but until then, there's not much reason for her to go back to wrestling predominantly women.
    I agree with what you're saying, but I mean it like I'd rather she leaves to go wrestle in companies that do have good women who can hang with her and have big time important matches to lift someone else's division, rather than I wish she'd go back down the card and wrestle Van Dam's twerking girlfriend.

    Fair. Realistically the only place she could go to do that would be NXT/WWE though. It's not likely she's going to go to Japan and become a mainstay there, and ROH and AEW's women divisions are beneath her (imo). I've already kinda expressed how I feel about that, but I can certainly understand that urge to see her on a bigger platform and not doing as much gimmick stuff, although I personally think it's good and in fact better than what any other woman wrestler has been doing this year.

While I do hope to see her one day match up with the likes of Charlotte, Kairi, Asuka and maybe even Bayley and Sasha, I just don't think present day WWE is going to be any good for her. It will undoubtedly be a step down for her in terms of what she's able to do and how much freedom she has with her character. We've got plenty of evidence that WWE no longer cares to push any one person to their full potential. Even if you're Kofi or Becky and you organically get insanely over and have all this momentum, within a few months you end up reduced to a catch phrase and you're no different than about dozen other people on the roster. You just become a part of "the brand". I don't want that for Tessa, even if it means more eyes on her work. Maybe down the line, if there are changes in how WWE books individuals, but at the moment I think she has a lot more room to grow and flourish in Impact than she does anywhere else.
    Agreed. They've only scratched the surface of what Tessa can do in impact now. If she beats Sami that opens up so much for her. So many more feuds and angles she can work. Thats alot more enticing and exciting than going to WWE and becomming another Ember Moon, Sasha Banks, etc or even as you pointed out Becky Lynch and just being a part of the brand. She stands out in Impact, she's Tessa B. In WWE she'd just be another Womens Wrestler with a catchphrase and a once a year push.
