An 11-time Women’s World Champion, Mickie James has been wrestling for more than two decades, including multiple title runs in WWE and IMPACT Wrestling. She has been wrestling since 1999 and has been a multi-time winner of the Woman Wrestler of the Year award. Away from the ring, James is a renowned country music singer, perhaps best known for her hit single “Hardcore Country.” She is an inductee into the Native American Music Awards Hall of Fame.
Deonna Purrazzo is a 3-time Knockouts World Champion who also has held other major wrestling titles, such as the Ring Of Honor Women’s Championship and the AAA Reina de Reinas Championship. A New Jersey native who has been wrestling professionally since 2013, Purrazzo was ranked No. 3 of 150 female wrestlers in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Women’s 150 in 2021 – and appears on the cover of PWI’s June 2023 issue. Purrazzo is known for her lethal Fujiwara Armbar, which has caused countless opponents to tap out. Purrazzo won the first-ever Knockouts 30-minute Iron Man match, earning the title, “The Iron-Woman of IMPACT Wrestling.”
