Deonna Purrazzo Reveals Where She Wants To Work Next After WWE Release
Optimistic about the future...
Deonna Purrazzo was seemingly a victim of WWE stockpiling talent during her two-year run in the company. The Virtuosa was rarely featured on WWE TV, and only started regularly appearing on Monday Night Raw and NXT in December 2019.
In an interview with Les anti-pods de la lutte, Purrazzo said she feels WWE only signed her to stop her from appearing at ALL IN and later signing with All Elite Wrestling. The former Stardom star said: "I had proved I was ready to be a superstar and it ended up being that I was hired to keep me from AEW and keep me from doing ALL IN and I continued to be enhancement talent for two years."
Having now been released by WWE, Purrazzo is looking forward to the future and told Gary Cassidy at Sportskeeda that she would ideally like to sign with AEW, but if that wasn't an option she would choose to link up with the women in IMPACT Wrestling.
The Virtuosa said: "I guess, ideally, like, I haven't been to AEW yet... Britt Baker is my best friend, she works there, they have a kick-ass women's division now. It's a lot of people I've never worked with, and it's a brand new product so I would love to experience that and be part of it.'
"That being said, if that's not an option, IMPACT has an amazing women's division right now. Tessa Blanchard has done some really cool things. Kylie Rae just signed there, Kiera's there, Taya... There's a really good group of girls that are doing some stuff that I would love to also be a part of. I don't know. I would love to go back to Japan, I'd love to go to Australia again. If I could wrestle in England again, I love that. It's like I would just love a shot at saying, 'Screw you WWE, really.'"
