Impact: Trinity on Importance of Deonna Purrazzo Match, Chris Sabin on Producer Work, Lio Rush

Trinity Comments on Her Upcoming Match with Deonna Purrazzo Will Be Career-Defining Match

Impact Wrestling held an online press conference this past Tuesday to promote this Saturday’s Slammiversary 2023 event in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

During her portion of the press conference, Trinity gave her thoughts about how her upcoming match with Deonna Purrazzo for the Impact Knockouts World Championship will be a career-defining match for her.

“That is a great question. I actually have not even asked myself that. I feel like if I’m going into this match already thinking that I’m defeated or that I may not make it or I may not make it or I may not win or I’m not capable, then this ain’t the match for me, I don’t even need to be here. So I’ll cross that bridge when I get there, but I’m not even going there in my mind. I need to keep my confidence up because I am going to need everything positive and focused going against her. I don’t wanna allow any what if or negativity to even start to seep in at this point. The buildup is so strong, and I just want to stay this way until Saturday. I ain’t trying to answer that, I’m not even gonna try to put that into the universe because all I’m telling myself is I’m gonna win. I have to win. This match is a career-defining match for me. I feel like the goods, bads, ups and downs and indifferent all brought me to this moment with Deonna, so I have to make it happen by any means necessary.”

Chris Sabin Comments on His Work as a Backstage Producer in Impact

A recent episode of the Saturday Night’s Main Event podcast featured Chris Sabin as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Sabin’s thoughts about his current work as a backstage producer in Impact and if he wants to continue doing backstage work after his in-ring career is over.

“Yeah, all of the above is an option really. I would be interested in anything like that, very possibly starting a school and training people or, I’m actually right now, I still agent and wrestle at the same time. So I’m still gaining experience as a backstage agent, I started doing that in 2019 so that’s four years of experience. I really like having that in my back pocket, because that’s a job position in every major wrestling company in the US, they have backstage agents. So just being able, if my in-ring career ended, I would still be able to agent, I would be happy with that as well. As long as I could work somewhere or have some job related to the wrestling business, I’d be happy.”

Lio Rush Comments on His Current Career in Impact

A recent episode of the Battleground Podcast featured Lio Rush as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Rush’s thoughts about his current career in Impact Wrestling.

“Well now that I’m actually in the locker room and I’ve been in the IMPACT zone a couple of times now, I definitely feel the energy. The energy is a lot different and I feel like the energy is different coming off of the actual wrestlers. There are a lot of people there that are hungry in a different way, you hear the term hungry in wrestling a lot, but I definitely feel like they’ve got something to prove, all of those guys and girls are superstars and they know it, which they should. This is the place to be, this is why I’m here. I’m not gonna waste my time, IMPACT is the place to be and I’m glad to be here.”
