Deonna Purrazzo Thinks She Should Be The One To Defeat Mickie James For The IMPACT Knockouts World Title
Deonna Purrazzo wants to end Mickie James’ IMPACT Knockouts World Title reign
Mickie James may have survived her ‘last rodeo’ by defeating Jordynne Grace for the Knockouts World Championship at IMPACT Hard to Kill on January 13, but there’s no time for James to rest as Deonna Purrazzo wants to defeat the multi-time women’s champion and end her current reign.
Purrazzo stated her case on the Bob Culture podcast, saying the following about James:
“Absolutely. It should be me,” Purrazzo said. “I think that Mickie and I have told an amazing story over the last almost two years that she’s been with Impact. And I think that it would really come full circle for Deonna Purrazzo to be the one to defeat Mickie James. I’ve never defeated Mickie James before. I almost did and then she cheated, so I just want to throw that out there. She only defeated me in December because she cheated.
“I think it would be so full circle because she dethroned me and I could get my comeuppance years later. It would be very interesting to see if we get to that point. I would love it. I know Mickie would love something like that to happen. It’s just a matter of time and if all the pieces are in the right place.”
James has defeated Purrazzo in singles competition on three separate occasions, with James taking the Knockouts Title from Purrazzo after their first meeting at Bound for Glory 2021.
