Taya Valkyrie Talks Slammiversary, Deonna Purrazzo’s Impact Debut


Taya Valkyrie appeared as a special guest on Wrestling Epicenter (see video below). Here are some highlights from that interview.

On her recent title match with Jordynne Grace that main evented Impact: “Well, my back is a little sore. I’ll say that! (laughs) I’m happy with the match except for the finish because of hoq distracted two people that were ringside were. I don’t know what Bravo was doing but I’m sure it was something I’m going to yell at him about later. Obviously, it didn’t play out the way I wanted it to because I want to get the Knockouts title back. But, that gives me more motivation to keep moving forward. Jordynne is one of the toughest girls that I’ve wrestled in my career. I can’t wait to beat her up again someday! (laughs)”

On the debut of Deonna Purrazzo and the surrounding buzz: “Honestly, I don’t really get it. So, yeah… I don’t really associate with someone that wears only one color because I think that’s boring. So, you know, yeah she’s there. That’s cool. I want to see what she can do. She hasn’t proven anything to anybody in the Knockouts division yet. She’s barely been there for a cup of coffee yet. So, lets see what she can do and then maybe I’ll have a different answer for you.”

On the Slammiversary teaser video and who from the released WWE talent she’d like in Impact: “I’m just excited to see what happens! If I’m being completely honest, I don’t have any information on what will happen and I’m just as excited as you guys! I feel like there are so many that left that company that could come back (to Impact) and I also feel like there are a lot of people who haven’t had that opportunity that could potentially be there. We’ll just have to wait and see. Slammiversary is not that far away. So, we don’t have to wait too much longer!”
