- Speaking on The Wrassingh Show, Deonna Purrazzo actually praised Mickie James.
“Yeah! I can say one, just one good thing.. Mickie has always been a pioneer of women's wrestling and she's taken it upon herself now, later in her career, to push forward women's wrestling, to be one of those people with a voice and with the power, to give people opportunities and you know, she put together the NWA Empowerrr pay-per-view - that was her thing.
She wanted me to be a part of it and I was.. you know, honored to be a part of it. Celebrating women's wrestling.. so she's really now, behind the scenes, pushing younger talent and giving them the opportunities that weren't necessarily always there for us. So I respect her for that. I don't necessarily respect her for much else but definitely the fact that she loves women's wrestling tremendously and wants to see us all succeed is how I feel about women's wrestling so we have that in common and I love that she's helping push forward women's wrestling for the future!”
