As the year 2017 comes to an end the Squared Circle Sirens teams will be highlighting different wrestlers from across the globe that we feel have made an impact over the past 365 days! Today we will be looking at Deonna Purrazzo!
Japan, England, California, Texas, New York, Massachusets, Rhode Island, and Florida are just some of the many places that became fluent in Purrazzo this year. She’s been around the globe and it’s rarer to see a high profiled independent promotion have a card without Deonna Purrazzo’s name on the card.
After spending the last bit of 2016 and the beginning of 2017 in the Mexican rainforest taking a much-needed sabbatical after winning the ECWA Super 8 Chickfight tournament back to back years Deonna started her 2017 in the land of the rising sun, Japan doing a tour with the STARDOM promotion that saw her go toe to toe against the likes of Kagetsu, Io Shirai, Mayu Iwatani, and Toni Storm.
After returning from Japan she continued to defend her ECWA Women’s title and began to expand her horizons wrestling for the first time in places like WrestleCircus in Texas and making her RISE and long-awaited SHIMMER debut, which saw her score a huge win over Cheerleader Melissa in her first ever appearance at the Berwyn Eagles Club.
She also reigned supreme in ROH’s Women of Honor where we saw her feud with Kelly Klein and eventually enter a feud with her protege Karen Q that gave us some of the best matches to take place in Women of Honor and some superb promo work by both ladies, especially Deonna’s twitter antics antagonizing Karen Q!
While she got to check Japan off her list she also got to check the UK off her list as well, making her UK debut when RISE and Bellatrix ran a co-promoted show in Norwich, England that saw Deonna defeat Shax live on iPPV. She also was just announced as apart of Revolution Pro’s Women’s Championship Tournament in January.
Although she failed to win the ECWA Super 8 Chickfight tournament this year she is the only women to have been apart of the finals in every ECWA Chickfight Tournament she has been a part of. She’s wrestled Awesome Kong, and Madison Rayne for Women’s Wrestling Revolution where she’s become a top star and continues to rise through the ranks in SHIMMER whilst tagging with Madison Rayne.
The sky is the limit for Deonna and in 2017 she really made her mark, solidifying herself as one of the top wrestlers in the world. From WWE, NXT, TNA, SHIMMER, WWR, Beyond, and much more Deonna has truly lived up to her nickname of the hottest free agent in wrestling this year.
