Deonna Purrazzo has had a career renaissance of sorts since her return to Impact Wrestling last year.
She not only won the Knockouts Championship but she was also voted Wrestler of the Year by the fans in the year end awards.
By defeating Havok at Under Siege, she’s beaten a majority of the Knockouts roster, so it’s only natural that the Virtuosa named herself the Prophet for predicting she’d win.
It’s just another addition to her long list of accomplishments over the last year, but she also stirred up some fun controversy with a WWE Hall of Famer and former WCW Women’s Champion Medusa/Alundra Blayze.
Issuing the challenge
In response to Purrazzo’s claims, Medusa tweeted:
“The Prophet? Virtuosa?
“Cafone” is a bit more apropos.
“Listen Virginia Hill… keep your precious Bugsy in the background, step up and fight.
“You want Any generation? Any championship? I got a Squash match for you.”
Medusa was an awesome champion just prior to the Attitude Era in the WWE and then in the WCW, though she may be better known for dropping the WWE women’s title in the trash on WCW Nitro.
Of course, Purrazzo wasted no time in accepting her challenge and it’d be a fun match.
Bringing in the old guard
One thing that’s set Impact Wrestling apart is they’re not afraid to bring in older wrestlers for one more run, and not just to stick them into a pay-per-view for a quick payday.
It’s pretty cool as we got to see Jazz and ODB in action for a little bit again, and we’d love to see Medusa in action again if she’s up for it.
Toward the end of her career, she reportedly had a recurring back problem, but she still put in a good effort and have some really good matches.
She’d be a great one to face Purrazzo and with any luck we could see some other legends like Trish Stratus or Lita return, or even Victoria since she was previously in Impact.
There’s a chance this could also be nothing more than a PR act or the two of them simply having fun exchanging taunts on social media.
Even if it’s simply harmless fun, it gives us plenty of fun as well by thinking about possible matchups and who else could come back for one more run.
