Deonna Purrazzo has arrived and she already has her sights set on the IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Championship.
Jordynne Grace successfully defended her Knockouts Championship over Taya Valkyrie, but the celebration was cut short as Purrazzo came to the ring. Deonna pointed at Grace’s title and asked for a handshake, but pulled Grace down to the mat and put her in an armbar. Deonna posed over Grace and the title to end the show.
Purrazzo had been signed with WWE since May 2018 and made her first appearance in the second Mae Young Classic tournament. She made it to the quarterfinals of that tournament and later competed on the NXT UK and NXT brands before she was released on April 15 of this year.
IMPACT announced Purrazzo would be joining the company on May 29 and aired a teaser promo, which is her second stint with the promotion. Prior to this, Purrazzo worked a few One Night Only events, Xplosion, and IMPACT television, with her last appearance coming in January 2017. Fightful also reports that Purrazzo has not signed a deal and she is on a per appearance agreement with IMPACT Wrestling.
