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.
