Deonna Purrazzo Unsure Of AEW Future Beyond Next Week's Debut
Deonna Purrazzo is set to step over to AEW/ROH
Earlier this week it was announced that IMPACT Wrestling star and current ROH Women’s World Champion Deonna Purrazzo will make her AEW debut when she takes on ROH Interim Women’s Champion Mercedes Martinez on the May 4 edition of Dynamite.
However, it is unsure whether this will be a one-off appearance for ‘The Virtuosa’ or not, as Purrazzo told PWInsider’s Mike Johnson:
"I'm excited. Nervous. I don't know how many people will be in the building in Baltimore or what the capacity is, but it will probably be the biggest crowd I've ever wrestled in front of, possibly. To have my first match in AEW as a championship match, for the Ring of Honor Women's Championship, is incredible. Over the last year and a half, there's been so much talk about what the women's crossover would be between AEW and IMPACT, and we haven't really seen anything. To be that first woman to get through Tony's forbidden door is everything I wanted. Alongside Britt, and people at IMPACT were very vocal about it, this is what we wanted. We wanted to be part of this. I don't know if it will extend further than me and Mercedes next week, but we're seeing a taste of it and that's exciting for all of women's wrestling," Purrazzo said.
