Deonna Purrazzo’s challenger set for NWA EmPowerrr

Aug 6, 2021 - by Marc Middleton

Melina vs. Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Deonna Purrazzo is now official for the all-women’s NWA EmPowerrr pay-per-view.

Last night’s Impact saw Purrazzo and “The Drama King” Matthew Rehwoldt celebrate their Homecoming tournament win, when EmPowerrr executive producer Mickie James brought Melina out to confront Purrazzo, and to sign the contract for the pay-per-view.

Melina has been working with the NWA since November 2019. Before defending against Melina, Purrazzo will defend her title against AAA Reina de Reinas Champion Faby Apache in a Champion vs. Champion match at AAA TripleMania next Saturday.

The all-women’s NWA Empowerrr pay-per-view, produced by James, will be held on Saturday, August 28 from the Khorassan Ballroom at Chase Park Plaza in St. Louis, MO. Below is the updated card, along with clips from last night’s Impact:
