IMPACT superstar and current ROH women’s champion Deonna Purrazzo recently joined MuscleMan Malcolm to discuss a wide range of topics, including her thoughts on Mercedes Martinez becoming ROH interim champion, and why she missed the Supercard of Honor pay-per-view. Highlights from the interview are below.
Her thoughts on Mercedes Martinez becoming the ROH women’ interim champion:
“Mercedes is a tough competitor, I’ve been in the ring with her a dozen times. The last time I was in the ring with her, she was tapping out, ‘I quit,’ to the Virtuosa. Whenever there is a unification match and she wants to step into the ring with the real Ring of Honor Women’s Champion then the same result is going to happen.”
Why she missed ROH Supercard of Honor:
“We talked about…we had our IMPACT show, we had two shows. I’m under contract with IMPACT, there’s not much I can do. My hands are kind of tied. I would have loved to defend the championship. Big things are to come. It was announced that down the road I would wrestle the winner and it was Mercedes. Everyone can cool the brakes a little bit. Calm down, stop with the negativity. Realize that Mercedes and I are going fucking kill it whenever we get in the ring.”
