Saturday night's "End of an Era" Final Battle pay-per-view included a surprise appearance by Deonna Purrazzo.

Purrazzo made her return to Ring of Honor after Rok-C retained the ROH Women's World Championship against Willow Nightingale at Final Battle. Purrazzo issued a challenge to Rok-C for a winner-take-all title match.

Purrazzo came out to the ring at Final Battle with her AAA Reina de Reinas Championship belt. While confronting Rok-C, Purrazzo said she wants the ROH Women's World title. Purrazzo said that, when she defeats Mickie James for the Knockouts Championship at Impact Wrestling's Hard to Kill pay-per-view, she's challenging Rok-C to face her in a winner-take-all title match.

Purrazzo implied that the match would be taking place in Impact Wrestling. Rok-C accepted Purrazzo's challenge and shook her hand.

Hard to Kill is taking place in Dallas, Texas on Saturday, January 8.

Purrazzo is a two-time Impact Knockouts Champion. She won the Reina de Reinas title from Faby Apache at Lucha Libre AAA's Triplemania XXIX this August.

Rok-C became the inaugural ROH Women's World Champion by defeating Miranda Alize in the finals of a tournament at Death Before Dishonor this September. The title replaced the old Women of Honor Championship.

Final Battle was the final live ROH event before the promotion goes on hiatus for the first quarter of 2022. ROH has said that it will be taking that time to "reimagine" the company. ROH talent contracts aren't being renewed after Final Battle.
