Deonna Purrazzo Comments on Missing ROH’s Supercard of Honor 2022 Event

YouTube channel MuscleManMalcolm held a recent interview with Deonna Purrazzo. One of the topics discussed included Purrazzo’s thoughts on not being able to compete for Ring of Honor at their Supercard of Honor 2022 event earlier this month in Garland, Texas.

“We talked about it and it just…we had our IMPACT show, we had two shows. I’m under contract with IMPACT, there’s not much I can do. My hands are kind of tied. I would have loved to defend the championship. I think big things are to come. It was announced that down the road I would wrestle the winner and it was Mercedes [Martinez]. Everyone can cool the brakes a little bit. Calm down, stop with the negativity. And just realize that Mercedes and I are going to frickin’ kill it whenever we get in the ring.”
