Deonna Purrazzo used to work in WWE NXT as a Superstar. She was fired from WWE back on April 15th last year due to budget cuts. It did not take her long to find her footing once again as she appeared on Impact Wrestling the next month in May. Since then Purrazzo won the Impact Knockouts Title and has been a force to be reckoned with.
On the other hand, Britt Baker made her debut in AEW back in 2019 and since then she has improved significantly, both as a character and also her in-ring skills and that has helped elevate her in the AEW women’s division. The forbidden door is open and that means more challengers could come Baker’s way from outside of AEW.
Britt Baker became a mainstay on AEW television and is touted as the face of the women’s division. She is currently the AEW Women’s Champion as well. She possesses quite a few characteristics that have been the recipe for success in her career.
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, Deonna Purrazzo talked about the Forbidden Door being open, leading to some great matches. Purrazzo then made it clear that she is still determined to face off against Britt Baker in a match.
“So to have that crossover with the women and possibly wrestle someone like Britt or tag with someone like Britt, who is my best friend in real life. So that adds another element into it. It would just be very special for us, I think as friends, but for women’s wrestling too. And that’s the whole point of all this. It’s to grow and evolve women’s wrestling. We haven’t had a lot of those firsts yet, so any time you can kind of get your hands on that and claim it as your own, I think it’s important these days.”
Britt Baker has been adamantly asking for a match with Deonna Purrazzo for a very long time now. Many fans are certainly excited at the idea of the two squaring off against each other in what would be a true dream match as both competitors have proven themselves to be two of the best female pro wrestlers in the world right now. We will have to wait and see if the two ever face off against each other inside the squared circle.
