Deonna Purrazzo recently sat down with Chris Van Vliet and talked about whether she was in talks with AEW after leaving NXT.

"I mean like, some people had reached out, but it was all kind of like fleeting. There was no like, “You’re gonna have a meeting” or, “We’re gonna sit down and do this”. Luckily, I had been to IMPACT before, I know the people there and it was right away like, “We’d like to have you, let’s talk about it when we can”. It was just more of a secure thing."
"But I also think too for me, I don’t want to… and it’s funny now that we’ve seen my debut so this is kind of like contradictory to what I’ve done, but I want to get back to the wrestler I was before NXT, and I want to find myself again and find happiness and all of the things that as a performer I lacked when I was competing in NXT. I want to do that before I go somewhere that’s as mainstream as AEW that has the critics of AEW. I don’t want to go there and be exploring myself and kind of fall into the same role that I fell in in NXT. And luckily IMPACT is a place that understands who I am, is totally on board with what they think I can do and are willing to give me the time to the character development that I need."
"So I think all things considering, it just really worked out well there. But who knows, you know? I would love to go to AEW. There’s so many girls that I haven’t gotten to work with, friends that are there and I love what they’re doing with their women’s division. It was just like a timing thing and I think what I need more as a person and a wrestler right now."

Until IMPACT tries to keep its main guys, it's difficult not to see them as a stepping stone company right now. I'm a fan of IMPACT but it's what they really need to start doing, they're doing lots of good things, so hopefully that issue changes.

Well they're starting to do that since according to Bryan Alvarez Impact are offering big money contracts to re-sign their young guys and to sign the big names that WWE released.

Good, they really need to. IMPACT have done extremely well to replace the guys gone, but you need to keep more, you need to build right now long-term with Elgin, Moose, Sami, Ace Austin, Fulton, Rascalz, The North, Mack, Swann & a few others

How and why Kimber Lee has not been signed up yet I really don't know. If they can pick up EC3, Rusev & Gallow/Anderson they're the 3 premium gets right now, that will help a lot.
