Deonna Purrazzo used to work in WWE NXT as a Superstar. She was fired from WWE back on April 15th 2020 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. Looking back, she doesn’t have the greatest things to say about the way WWE does things.

Purrazzo found great success after her WWE departure, as she won the Impact Knockouts Title and became a force to be reckoned with. After losing that title, she became the ROH Women’s Champion eventually.

While speaking on SiriusXM’s Busted Open Radio, Deonna Purrazzo talked about her time in WWE. Purrazzo made it clear she does not like anything about WWE’s way of going about things.

“I think dreams change. think as we get older and experience more things – like my dream was always to wrestle at WrestleMania and be, at the time, the Divas Champion. That’s all I knew in wrestling growing up, so that was my ultimate goal. Then I got there [to WWE], and it was like, I don’t like anything about this system, it’s just not a conducive environment for me and my dream changed. Now I just want to go somewhere that’s going to appreciate me for me, and give me an opportunity to wrestle and see what happens.”


It was officially announced that Deonna Purrazzo will be making her in-ring debut on AEW Dynamite this week. She will be defending her ROH Women’s Championship against Mercedes Martinez. We’ll have to see who will come out on top in the match.
