Deonna Purrazzo 'Disappointed' By No Female Crossover Through The Forbidden Door

A criticism of the IMPACT-AEW crossover

Deonna Purrazzo has admitted to being 'a little disappointed' that female wrestlers were not given the chance to walk through 'The Forbidden Door'.

Despite all the excitement of IMPACT Wrestling, All Elite Wrestling and NJPW sharing certain talent in 2021, one notable criticism would be that no female talent were given the opportunity to have dream matches with wrestlers from other promotions. 

Former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Purrazzo is frustrated that such an opportunity didn't happen.

Speaking on the Fightful Pro Wrestling & MMA Podcast, Purrazzo said: "I think I was a little disappointed because, for me, there’s a ton of dream matches with people I haven’t been in the ring with for years or have never been in the ring with prior.

"But, I think Impact was the hub of all of the crossover, and we got to do a lot of stuff with NWA.  Obviously, my match with Melina was one of the headliners of Empowerrr. As disappointing as it was, I try to look at the positive now instead of harping on what could have been. Let’s look at what was."
