Deonna Purrazzo is one of the best wrestlers in the history of Impact Wrestling’s Knockouts division, not to mention one of its most decorated, but Friday night she fought for her championship life.
The Virtuosa challenged Trinity for the Knockouts World Championship with the stipulation that a loss would mean she was unable to challenge for the top prize in the division as long as the queen of glow held the title.
At one point, it appeared as though Purrazzo would win the match and title. Instead, she let the frustration surrounding her inability to beat Trinity with the Queen’s Gambit distract her. After a verbal confrontation with special guest referee Gail Kim, Purrazzo found herself trapped in Starstruck and left with no choice but to tapout.
A physical encounter with Kim made her night worse as she was left lying, her championship prospects limited.
Purrazzo is so good. As talented as Trinity is, The Virtuosa is on another level, though that could be said of her and any other competitor in the promotion. Purrazzo is one of the best pure, technical wrestlers on the planet and she continuously shows it whenever she competes.
Up next for her, it appears, is the long-awaited showdown with Hall of Famer Kim, who would likely give her another stellar encounter to hang her proverbial hat on.
As for the champ, Trinity will battle Jordynne Grace for the Knockouts World Championship at Hard to Kill on January 13, 2024 in Las Vegas.
