Deonna Purrazzo, who just started with Impact Wrestling, is quickly ascending the ladder and will now be wrestling for the Knockouts title at the upcoming Slammiversary pay-per-view.
The news of Purrazzo taking on Jordynne Grace was announced last night on Impact on ASX TV. For the past two weeks, the former NXT star attacked the Knockouts champion and locked her in the Fujiwara arm bar. Grace tried to get some revenge on Purrazzo after she made her Impact in-ring debut yesterday but Purrazzo managed to escape.
This is the second match announced so far for Slammiversary which takes place on July 18. The other match is the main event featuring Tessa Blanchard defending the Impact World title against Ace Austin, Eddie Edwards, Michael Elgin, and Trey Miguel.
Elgin is currently suspended by Impact Wrestling over inappropriate behavior allegations.
