A top IMPACT Wrestling star has suggested a stipulation match for showdown with Mickie James.
In 2021, Mickie James made her return to IMPACT Wrestling and immediately confronted then-Knockouts World Champion Deonna Purrazzo.
James went on to defeat Purrazzo for the title at IMPACT Bound For Glory 2021 before once again putting her away in a Texas Death Match at Hard To Kill 2022.
Speaking with Women’s Wrestling Talk, Deonna Purrazzo revealed the stipulation she wants to face Mickie in when it was mentioned the pair could settle things in a Monster’s Ball Match. She said:
“Can we have a casket match? I don’t know why, but every time I’m in the ring with Mickie, I end up yelling, ‘I’m going to kill you! I’m going to kill you!’ I think a casket match is really symbolic.”
When asked about the most rewarding part of being a Knockout, Deonna answered:
“The most rewarding thing is just being a Knockout. There is such a legacy that comes with that, and honoring that legacy is so rewarding.”
“You get to work with Mickie James, Gail Kim, Traci Brooks has come in and out.”
“Just to have those presences in the locker room and you can ask them their experiences and learn from them and pick their brain and it really makes us more well-rounded athletes and wrestlers, and a more well-rounded division.”
Purrazzo continued on to talk about how she wants to further push the boundaries of what it means to be a Knockouts star, saying:
“There is such a legacy that comes with that and continuing to push the boundaries and do things like a Texas Deathmatch, the first-ever Knockouts pay-per-view main event.”
“Do things like main event television week after week. Have Last Knockout Standing matches, deathmatches for women, things like that and continuing to push those boundaries is the most rewarding.”
“The Virtuosa” concluded by noting how she wants everyone to success to further push the Knockouts, saying:
“It doesn’t necessarily need to be something that I’m doing, but I really feel as though if my co-workers succeed, I succeed.”
“If my best friends succeed and the people I love succeed, I’m also succeeding through them.”
“To watch everyone continue to go out there and push the boundaries for what it means to be a Knockout and to be part of IMPACT Wrestling is what makes me the proudest.”
