Deonna Purrazzo should be getting booked hard
. She shouldn't be the one jobbing, the others should be jobbing to her. I'm beyond tired of the rep she gets for jobbing to people she's above in skill; enough of using her like that. A steady booking of her against jobbers every other week is exactly what would build her up. This is how they built Rhea up. Deonna especially has enough potential to be the "excellence of execution" of the division. Take Mia straight out of the equation and replace her with Deonna. Mia is a failed push.
Someone like Deonna getting trashed by Belair in a jobfest is almost creepy. It insults my intelligence. She can not only hang with Bianca, she could beat Bianca 7 out of 10 times with the glaring skill difference.
The only thing Bianca has on her and most other girls is power. Besides that, Bianca is very overrated, but perhaps not as overrated as current Mia Yim.
Imagine you would go out there and hold up your (real) black belt everytime, just to get your behind kicked; you would feel like a joke and perform bad, as well.
Yes and not only that, the way they have her behaving. It reminds me of some sort of child or person with mental problems. I want to like her because I like her background and could like her gimmick, but she comes off so annoying I want to turn her match off. But I bear through just to see how she's coming along, which honestly isn't much of an impression to me.
I'd add, it looks like to me she's the type of wrestler who doesn't benefit very well at going at typical NXT style fast paces. I examine her movement. She needs a bit of a slower type of match to look halfway decent, because whenever she tries to work fast, she literally stumbles through everything. Her rush game is the sloppiest out of every woman in NXT, next to Bianca, who's actually improved on being less sloppy.
If Tay works on getting sharper and quits trying to be speedy when it's not her forte, she'll start looking better in the ring.
