IMPACT Star Discusses Goals For The Next Five Years

IMPACT Star Discusses Goals For The Next Five Years IMPACT Wrestling

An IMPACT Wrestling star has discussed her goals for the next five years.

Since signing in 2020, Deonna Purrazzo is one of the most decorated Knockouts in IMPACT Wrestling. She is a two-time Knockouts Champion, a former Knockouts Tag Team Champion and headlined the Hard To Kill pay-per-view against Mickie James in a Texas Deathmatch.

Despite accomplishing so much in the past three years, “The Virtuosa” still believes she has plenty left to do inside and outside of the ring.

Speaking to Mark Hoke on the Mark Hoke Show, Purrazzo was asked what her goals are for the next five years. She answered:

“I just got married (to Steve Maclin), I definitely want to be a mom one day. That is kind of what my long-term goal is.”

“In wrestling, I want to feel like I’ve done everything before I take a leave of absence and go be a mom. Specifically at IMPACT, for the Knockouts, there is a legacy.”

“We continue to get opportunities to push boundaries and have the first-ever Knockouts Ultimate X match that Tasha Steelz won at Hard To Kill 2022, that same night we had the first-ever Knockouts World Championship pay-per-view (main event), myself and Mickie James, in the first-ever Texas Deathmatch.”

“Mickie was in the second-ever pay-per-view main event against Jordynne Grace when she won the Knockouts World Championship. We’re continuing to get these opportunities, but it’s not as frequent as I would like.”

On wanting to see the Knockouts get more main event opportunities, Deonna stated:

“I want to see women main event all the time. I want it to be a regular thing. With that, not just because we’re women, but because we’re telling stories that warrant us getting the main event.”

“In terms of what I’d like to do is be able to tell another incredible story similar to what I did to Mickie James and become a three-time Knockouts World Champion. That’s my ultimate goal in the next year.”

“After that, it’s being able to settle down and be like, ‘I’m comfortable with where I’m at in wrestling’ and see what real life has for me. I’m in college, I graduate in July, there is some real life stuff going on that I’m really focused on and excited for in my future.”

Deonna Purrazzo is scheduled to face Gisele Shaw on the IMPACT No Surrender 2023 pre-show on Friday, February 24.
