Deonna Purrazzo was released from WWE NXT in April, and it didn’t take her very long at all to arrive in Impact Wrestling. The Virtuosa won the Impact Knockout Title when she only had a handshake agreement with the company.
Entering a new work environment is always going to be a nerve-racking situation. For Deonna Purrazzo, it was a bit scary as she entered the Impact Wrestling locker room after her NXT days came to an end.
Purrazzo explained to Sitting Ringside with David Penzer that her best fiends were with her in WWE, but that wasn’t the case in Impact Wrestling. She was on her own in a lot of ways and forced to thrive without anyone having her back.
“It was a little scary for me at first to come to those tapings towards the end of May. When I was in WWE, I had some of my best friends with me. To be walking into a new place, not that I didn’t know anyone, but just to be on my own, it was really scary and intimidating for me. But, there are a great group of girls who make up our women’s division. They are great athletes but even better people who, right off the bat, made me feel comfortable and were really excited that I was going to be part of the team.”
It didn’t take Deonna Purrazzo long at all to find friends in Impact Wrestling. Kimber Lee is currently by her side on television acting as her associate while The Virtuosa clings to her Knockouts Title.
2020 was a very interesting year for Deonna Purrazzo. She had to experience a lot of things that she never thought would happen, but this year held a lot of surprises for many people.
