Knockouts Champ Deonna Purrazzo Discusses Her Second Title Reign, Body-Shamers, And Being A Role Model For Young Women

On this episode of Not About Wrestling,  I’m talking to “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo.

Deonna Purrazzo made a statement when she signed with IMPACT Wrestling and almost immediately dethroned Jordynne Grace at Slammiversary to become the new Knockouts Champion.

Deonna and I talk about our love for our home state of New Jersey, how she got into the business, how getting grounded was a huge influence on her early fandom, the pressure that comes with having to remember to bring the Knockouts Champion belt everywhere, and dealing with body shamers online.

Deonna also discusses her upcoming match with Taya Valkyrie at Hard To Kill this weekend.

PLUS, I’m joined in the opening by my friend and fellow wrestling fan, Stephanie Bowen. Steph and I discuss my affection for championship belts and my early days of creating homemade wrestling belts.
