Deonna Purrazzo to defend Impact Knockouts title at NWA Empowerrr

After her first attempt to get Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo to appear on NWA Empowerrr resulted in the champion being laid out, Mickie James returned to Impact Wrestling Thursday and got her to agree to compete at the August 28th pay-per-view.

James invited Purrazzo out to the ring to help smooth things over after superkicking her at Saturday's Slammiversary after the two had words following Purrazzo's title defense over Thunder Rosa. Purrazzo wanted James to apologize in exchange for her to be on the show.

Gail Kim then joined the two as a peacemaker and Purrazzo eventually accepted the offer with her opponent to be revealed on a future show (spoiler warning).

The all-women's card will be a first for the NWA, co-produced by James.

Here's the early card for St. Louis, Missouri, event thus far:

  • NWA Women's Champion Kamille vs. TBA
  • Impact Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo vs. TBA
  • A match for the vacant NWA Women's Tag Team titles
