Deonna Purrazzo coming to Impact Wrestling


A former NXT wrestler is coming to Impact Wrestling's Knockouts division.

On tonight's episode of Impact, a video aired hyping the arrival of Deonna Purrazzo. She tweeted after the video aired: "I’ll see you soon @IMPACTWRESTLING... #Virtuosa"

The video that aired tonight was also uploaded to Purrazzo's YouTube channel last month. It establishes Purrazzo's Virtuosa character, with her saying she has outstanding technical ability and a cultivated appreciation for artistic excellence. Purrazzo says she's been able to declutter her mind and access space previously ignored -- and she's formulated the perfect equation for success and implements it with precision.

Purrazzo was part of last month's WWE releases. While announcing her release, Purrazzo tweeted that being released was something she had been struggling with wanting: "The people closest to me know this is something I’ve been struggling with wanting for the better part of the last year. Happy to say I gave this journey my best and MORE excited for the future!"

The wrestlers released from NXT had 30-day non-compete clauses.

Purrazzo's last match for WWE was against Nia Jax on the April 6 episode of Raw. She was also part of a gauntlet match on the April 1 episode of NXT.
