Eli Drake recently took to Twitter to reply to an individual responding with criticism to the announcement that Drake will be battling Tessa Blanchard in an Intergender Match at IMPACT Wrestling United We Stand. Drake was adamant that he would not partake in the match, writing, “You couldn’t have hit the nail more directly on the head. I have amazing respect for Impact Wrestling and Tessa Blanchard and can see that she is likely the greatest female talent in wrestling today. Although that said, I will not participate in a one on one intergender match.”
United We Stand takes place on April 4th, 2019 inside The Rahway Rec Center in Rahway, New Jersey. You can check out Drake’s full tweet below:

As seen in the video below, last Friday night’s episode of IMPACT Wrestling came to a conclusion with LAX reaching their boiling point after losing yet another IMPACT Wrestling World Tag Team Title Match to The Lucha Brothers (Pentagon Jr. & Fenix). LAX responded by beating Pentagon Jr. & Fenix down to the mat and then they proceeded to rip off their masks. This, as is well documented throughout history, is the ultimate sign of disrespect to a lucha libre wrestler.
