The Undisputed Era is no more, but the idea of placing four friends together isn’t a new one in pro wrestling. Deonna Purrazzo used to work in WWE NXT as a Superstar. She was fired from WWE back on April 15th last year due to budget cuts. It did not take her long to find her footing once again as she appeared on Impact Wrestling the next month in May.
Since then Purrazzo won the Impact Knockouts Title and has been a force to be reckoned with. Purrazzo would eventually lose the title to Mickie James as well.
Purrazzo worked in NXT since 2018 before her release in 2020 and for the most part, she was underutilized. Fans simply never saw her live up to her full potential in WWE.
While speaking on the Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, Deonna Purrazzo talked about her time in WWE. Purrazzo revealed the various pitches she made during her time in the company, which included a female version of the Undisputed Era.
“Me and Chelsea pitched being a tag team. Me, Chelsea, and Rachael Ellering pitched being like a female Undisputed Era, Shield type thing. I pitched a ton of ideas. They had me lose a couple of times on TV, I pitched losing and making that a thing until I snapped. ‘I don’t even need to win, just let me keep the armbar and get disqualified and that can set up with this babyface.’ I would do extra promos and film stuff at home. At the end of the day, I put every bit of me into that place to make it work it and it didn’t.”
Deonna Purrazzo is set to square off against Mickie James at Hard To Kill for the Knockout’s Championship. We will have to wait and see who will end up winning the match.
