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.
The concept of the Forbidden Door being broken has been one of the main draws of pro wrestling since last year, with the advent of AEW and Impact Wrestling’s partnership. Eventually, AEW worked with NJPW as well and others.
While speaking with Two Man Power Trip of Wrestling Podcast, Deonna Purrazzo talked about her disappointment due to a lack of women being involved in the Forbidden Door.
“I have been one of the main people to constantly push for like, ‘hey women should be a part of this (referring to the forbidden door)’ and obviously AEW has a tremendous amount of women’s talent that I’d love to work with like I’ve said, Britt is obviously one of my best friends, yeah, I was really disappointed that women didn’t get to do too much through the forbidden door.
“I did get to do EmPowerrr which was, which AEW was a part of that, NWA was a part of that, AAA was a part of that, I got to go to AAA to win the Reina de Reinas Championship, I got to wrestle Thunder Rosa at Slammiversary. So it’s like, maybe the women’s side doesn’t get enough credit for the work we actually did get to do.”
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.
