Deonna Purrazzo Gives Her Thoughts On ROH Interim Women's Champion Mercedes Martinez

Mercedes Martinez won the ROH Interim Women's Championship at Supercard of Honor 2022

Mercedes Martinez is your ROH Interim Women’s Champion, defeating Willow Nightingale for the vacant strap at Supercard of Honor 2022. But what of ROH lineal Women’s Champion Deonna Purrazzo?

Purrazzo won the title from Rok-C earlier this year, and during an interview with Muscleman Malcolm, ‘The Virtuosa’ gave her thoughts on Martinez:

"Mercedes is a tough competitor, I've been in the ring with her a dozen times. The last time I was in the ring with her, she was tapping out, 'I quit,' to the Virtuosa. Whenever there is a unification match and she wants to step into the ring with the real Ring of Honor Women's Champion then the same result is going to happen," Purrazzo said.

The interim title match came to be because Deonna Purrazzo was unable to perform at Supercard of Honor:

"We talked about… we had our IMPACT show [Multiverse of Matches], we had two shows. I'm under contract with IMPACT, there's not much I can do. My hands are kind of tied. I would have loved to defend the championship. Big things are to come. It was announced that down the road I would wrestle the winner and it was Mercedes. Everyone can cool the brakes a little bit. Calm down, stop with the negativity. Realise that Mercedes and I are going f****** kill it whenever we get in the ring,” continued Purrazzo.
