• “I hope you regret it & I hope you feel dumb” – Released Wrestler To WWE
While speaking on Busted Open Radio, IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo discussed her Knockouts Championship win and her release from WWE during the budget cuts in April.
Below is what she said:
“I had a chip on my shoulder, and the first interviews I did, I was like, ‘screw NXT!’ and that put a target on my back. That put pressure to perform at a new level and to raise to Jordynne’s level, to Taya’s level, raise to Tessa’s level. All the champions that came before me, now I have to be equal with them. If not, better, especially where I was coming from and the success I didn’t see in NXT.
I had to make this worthwhile, and come in, and be right with the champion, be on the first pay-per-view I can be on as, now, the Knockouts Champion. It’s like, ‘[WWE] messed up! And I hope you regret it and I hope you feel dumb’, because everyone else can see it and I’ve known it my entire life.”
