Deonna Purrazzo On The IInspiration & Awesome Kong’s HOF Induction


Impact Wrestling’s Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo has commented on the incoming arrival of The IInspiration (Cassie Lee & Jessica McKay) to the company, as well as Awesome Kong’s induction into Impact’s Hall of Fame.

During an interview with AJ Singh on The Wrassingh Show, Purrazzo had this to say on the arrival of The IInspiration,


“I think it’s great for our roster! I think the fact that IMPACT has really become a landing spot and people are seeking out IMPACT Wrestling to give them the opportunities that maybe they didn’t feel they got elsewhere or that IMPACT is giving people, who have been buying on the indies for a long time, the opportunity to be on a bigger stage and show what they got! So, for The IInspiration to come in and want to be a part of our Knockouts division – they’re in the Knockouts Tag Team Championship match against Decay at Bound for Glory. I think it’s going to be a really special moment for our knockouts division and for Cassie [Lee and Jess [McKay], themselves.”

“I don’t see them as competition because I think that as of right now they’re a tag team, they’re not coming for my Knockouts Championship.. so maybe it would be a different story if they decide they want the Knockouts Championship. But as of now, I love them both and I’m excited to see what they’re going to do here at IMPACT Wrestling.”

Later on in the interview, Deonna Purrazzo would talk about how excited she was about the induction of Awesome Kong into Impact’s Hall of Fame. She said,

“I was so excited to hear that news at Knockouts Knockdown, to see her there at Knockouts Knockdown, there’s no one more deserving! She is like the knockout OG. She broke barriers and glass ceilings and in so many ways for us as a knockouts division but as women’s wrestlers in the entire industry!”

“As a whole for us to be able to do what we do today so we owe so much gratitude to Awesome Kong for what she’s done and I think that this is the perfect way for her to kind of close that chapter of her life is to be inducted into the Hall of Fame!”
