Purrazzo’s last match took place in early April on WWE’s RAW brand and fast forward to present day, she is joining IMPACT Wrestling’s Knockouts division which features the likes of Knockouts Champion Jordynne Grace, Tasha Steelz, Taya Valkyrie, Tenille Dashwood, Rosemary, Su Yung, Madison Rayne, Kylie Rae, Kiera Hogan and IMPACT World Champion Tessa Blanchard.
Deonna was a part of the NXT brand and NXT talents have a 30-day non-compete clause in their contracts. Upon the news of her release from the company, Purrazzo announced a series that is up on IWTV that’s based around her entitled “Ventures Of The Virtuosa”.
