Deonna Purrazzo spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News about being named one of the latest entrants in the WWE Mae Young Classic tournament and noted that she was an alternate last year. “Even though I was an alternate, I got to see these 32 incredible women change women’s wrestling,” Purrazzo said. “Regardless of me being in it or not, to see that first hand and that energy at Full Sail last year was amazing. It makes me even more excited for this year.” Read the full interview at SportingNews.com.
Powell’s POV: Purrazzo is a talented wrestler who has appeared for all of the major promotions in the United States at one time or another. She also discussed the WWE Hall of Famer who influenced her at a young age and her desire to be part of the change in the empowerment of women in the industry.
