Deonna Purrazzo Wants To Team With Britt Baker In AEW, Talks About Possibility Of AEW Women's Tag Titles

Deonna Purrazzo wants to team with Britt Baker in AEW and see the potential formation of a women's tag team division.

Deonna Purrazzo is no stranger to women's tag team wrestling, having held the TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championship with Chelsea Green as VXT. Now a member of the AEW roster, Purrazzo has another one of her best friends in the promotion and Purrazzo told SEScoops during a recent interview that she would hopefully like to be paired with Brett Baker when Baker returns to action.

“It has been interesting because I think in our mind we always envisioned us being there at the same time and doing it together,” she said. “That has not been the case for the last six months, so I'm very excited for whenever Brit comes back and I get to work with her on this kind of level because we never have before. Also, I want to see how she can reinvent herself and what she can do because she is one of the OG girls and has been there since Day 1 as the first woman signed.

“To hear her thoughts and take on the way the division has grown and the potential she sees for the future is interesting. It’s some of the same things I want for our division. It will be fun to work together and achieve that.”

Deonna Purrazzo isn't sure whether or not she and Baker can just do a variant of VXT but she would like to potentially see the launch of Women's Tag Team Championships for All Elite Wrestling. However, she knows it takes time to build chemistry and relationships amongst teammates and would like to see something with a story for the girls on the roster as opposed to just the announcement of new championship belts.

“I think the most logical answer is Britt. I don’t know if we can have a different rendition of VXT in AEW or what that looks like,” she said. “Coming from a division that had or still has a world tag team championship, it is interesting because I think more opportunities for women is amazing. I don't think it is something you can introduce and say, “Here is the women’s tag team championship because you wanted it and gave it to you. I think there is a long process of developing real teams and having people have partnerships that are meaningful and long-lasting, especially for women. I think it’s easy to throw girls in there and say you’re a tag team. That hinders women’s tag team division a whole bunch.

“It takes time to build chemistry. A relationship that then you can feel through the screen. I think if there was going to be AEW women’s tag team championship, I would like to see it far out and see our tag division really cultivated and the relationship truly formed. Then maybe there is a tournament to solidify who would wrestle for the titles or who would become champion. Something more with long-term storytelling and a large format instead of just, 'You asked for it, here it is.'"

It is not known when Britt Baker will return to action, she has not wrestled since September 16, 2023, when she lost an AEW TBS Title match to Kris Statlander on AEW Saturday Collision.

Purrazzo will take on Baker's longstanding rival Thunder Rosa during the pre-show Buy-In ahead of AEW Double or Nothing 2024.
