Here’s an update on the status of a new IMPACT Wrestling Champion who won their title at yesterday’s Slammiversary pay-per-view.


Former WWE and NXT talent Deonna Purrazzo defeated Jordynne Grace at Slammiversary to win the Knockouts Title. It had been reported before then that she hadn’t signed a contract with the promotion despite several appearances in the lead-up to the bout.

Fightful Select (subscription required and recommended) is now reporting that, despite winning the title, Purrazzo still hasn’t signed and is working on a per-appearance basis.


Purrazzo signed a developmental contract with WWE in 2018, but despite her talent and quality, never really appeared on TV consistently, before being released a few months ago.

When she signed that WWE deal, she was initially scheduled for All In that September, but cancelled her appearance in favour of signing. Since being released she’s said she’d love to work with AEW.


She did have one match on Raw towards the end of her WWE run but even then was still only used on NXT sporadically.

Guess they wanted all the change attention with this ppv. But this was silly if true, as all the attention was already there for people to see which wwe stars will appear.

I assume they did it, because Purrazzo may not have much of a chance to jump ship (wwe fired, aew relation unknown). But still, they ran already into problems when they made her buddy Chelsea Green champion, who even had contract though. Like Green, Purrazzo does hardly seem trustworthy (talking to every dirt sheet there is, burying any former company to score and she also already simply waived an agreement when a better offer came - she was booked for All In, but not appeared as wwe contacted her). With the Covid-situation probably nothing will happen as she may have no other offers, but it's still baffling they not learned something from the Tessa drama.

Deonna isn't bad looking but she's not hot either imo. In some of her vignettes she has a very beautiful face but then other times not so much, it's like the camera, lighting, and makeup has to be just right for her to look really good.

This is puzzling if true, given what happened recently with Tessa. It might actually suggest she'll drop the title to Kylie Ray (who is on a long-term contract) during this set of tapings.
