Deonna Purrazzo All For Mickie James' WWE Royal Rumble Appearance If It Benefits IMPACT

A new set of eyes on IMPACT

While WWE have rarely worked with other major promotions in recent years, that is set to change at the upcoming Royal Rumble pay-per-view as Vince McMahon's company worked out a deal with IMPACT Wrestling that will see Mickie James enter the Women's Rumble. 

Speaking about the deal with SportsKeeda, James' former IMPACT rival Deonna Purrazzo admitted she is "all for" the Royal Rumble appearance if it benefits her current promotion. 

"I think WWE hasn't always necessarily played well with others so there was so much shock factor to them announcing Mickie James entering the Royal Rumble as the IMPACT Knockouts World Champion... it put a whole new set of eyes on IMPACT's product and then Mickie and my match at Hard To Kill so I was as shocked as everyone else about the announcement but if it is benefitting IMPACT in some way, then I'm all for it," Purrazzo said.

James won't be the only former WWE talent in the Women's Rumble and the likes of Brie Bella, Nikki Bella, Summer Rae and Lita are all scheduled to be in the match.
