Last night the last episode of AEW Dynamite was broadcast and through an announcement we learned that the current worker who belongs to the IMPACT roster, but is Ring Of Honor champion, Deonna Purrazzo, will make his debut in All Elite Wrestling.
The wrestler will have to defend her ROH belt against the interim champion of the same company after Tony Khan had organized a match between Mercedes Martinez and Willow Nightingale to decree the interim champion in the first ROH event organized by the CEO after buying the company.
In fact, Deonna Purrazzo will clash with Mercedes Martinez to decide once and for all which of the two will be the absolute champion of the Ring Of Honor, even if there is already the suspicion that due to the various contracts and the fact that Deonna lost only the last weekend also the AAA Reina de Reinas belt, may the veteran Martinez win.
Virtuosa had become ROH Women’s World Champion when the company temporarily closed, taking the belt away from Rok-C, now known as Roxanne Perez in WWE.
Deonna Purrazzo will debut in AEW
Obviously, after this announcement, the two rivals wasted no time and immediately wrote a message on social networks.
Martinez wrote: “I've been waiting for the ROH women's title for a very long time! This won't be easy, but I can't wait to try when I'm worth it! The stakes are higher than many realize. CHAMPION VS CHAMPION."
While Deonna Purrazzo wrote: "My LONG awaited debut in AEW ... #Virtuosa." In fact, many people, when there was the collaboration between AEW and IMPACT, strongly wanted to see many more women exchange in the various brands and above all, they wanted to see Britt Baker confront, or in a challenge or in a tag team, with Deonna Purrazzo, knowing even how friendly the two are.
They also wanted this very much, so maybe on Wednesday, we could see a small exchange, even if only backstage, between the two. James' participation in the bout was announced by Vince McMahon's company on last week's episode of SmackDown, much to the surprise of many fans.
This was before her and Deonna Purrazzo's Texas Death Match for the Knockouts Championship at Hard to Kill. At the event, the WWE legend successfully retained her title. "I think that it's incredible. I think it's an incredible opportunity for IMPACT to have new eyes on its product.
And I think, you know, WWE doesn't necessarily have the best reputation for playing with others, so the fact that they were willing to do this with Mickie and put over IMPACT as a whole and our Knockouts Championship, is important for us," said Purrazzo.
