Purrazzo accepted Valkyrie’s challenge for her title in a backstage promo during the show. During her speech, she said while she doesn’t usually involve herself in the peasants of the Knockouts division, she has respect for Valkyrie.
Purrazzo mentioned that because Valkyrie was the longest reigning Knockouts Champion ever, if she is able to defeat Valkyrie that means she can become the longest reigning Knockouts Champion.
Purrazzo is currently holding the title for the second time, having won it at Turning Point in November. Meanwhile, Valkyrie lost the Knockouts title earlier this year on January 18 after a historic 377-day reign.
