Deonna Purrazzo hopes to see Chelsea Green return to IMPACT Wrestling.
Chelsea Green was released from WWE on Thursday, April 15, 2021. One year before that, Deonna Purrazzo was released by WWE.
Deonna and Chelsea, in real life, are best friends and were briefly a tag team in NXT. Speaking with talkSPORT, Deonna, the current Knockouts Champion, would say that because of that friendship, she would like to see Chelsea end up in IMPACT Wrestling.
Of course, Chelsea has history there as she was a former Champion known as Laurel Van Ness.
“I mean, especially Chelsea, but it’s kind of hard. Because when I was released last year, I was happy about it. I was kind of like ‘woohoo! Freedom! I get to be my own self.’ That’s not a lot of the cases this time around. Especially, Chelsea, it was more of a shock. So I’ve just kind of been like let the dust settle and then we’ll talk about it all. Obviously, IMPACT is where I want her to be and I want her to thrive and succeed."
"I think being so close and having the relationship we do, her seeing me thrive the last year too, is kind of a relief. Seeing her fiance Matt Cardona thrive in the last year is relieving, too. Because it’s like I thought I was going to be at this place, I thought it was going to be my forever home, but I’ll be okay no matter what. Been there, done that. I’m sure IMPACT would love to have her back. She’s a former Knockouts champion too…”
Chelsea recently spoke to Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp following her release. You can check out that full interview here.
