Why Deonna Purrazzo should take the title from Jordynne Grace at Impact Wrestling’s Slammiversary.

Impact Wrestling‘s Slammiversary returns to Pay Per View on Saturday, July 18th. The card boasts to be one of the strongest that Impact has put together in recent years teasing the return of at least one former World Champion to the company and several other big names.

It has been recently reported that the good brothers Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson, in addition to re-signing with NJPW, will compete in the growing Impact Tag Division. A huge get for a division that has been admittedly thin since both the Lucha Brothers and LAX left to help build the company known as All Elite Wrestling.

Several other ex-WWE wrestlers have teased at a possible return to the squared circle at Slammiversary including current Impact superstar Rhino’s former tag team partner Heath Slater, Former TNA Heavyweight Champions Eric Young, and EC3, as well as both of the Major Brothers Bryan Meyers and Zack Ryder.

But while debuts both possible and improbable are exciting they are not the major draw for many fans who will be tuning into the show. Many people, myself included are crediting their interest in this year’s Slammiversary card to one single match. A match that will determine the very soul of Impact Wrestling. The meeting of two of wrestling’s newest goliaths clashing for the very first time when “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo challenges “Thick Momma Pump” Jordynne Grace for her Impact Knockouts Title.

Grace who -at the time of her defense -will have held the Knockouts title for 6 months has to this point run roughshod over the very stacked Knockouts Division. Defeating all comers for her title. From the longest-reigning knockouts champion in history Taya Valkyrie, to up and comers like Kiera Hogan, Grace has batted down all challengers with poise and ease.

Enter Deonna Purrazzo.

Purrazzo, also an 8 year veteran in wrestling, brings with her a ferocity and hard-hitting style not seen from a female competitor in Impact since the former World Champion and current free agent Tessa Blanchard regularly competed in the knockouts division.

With her devastating Armbar submission and high impact offense, the contest will be, at the very least, Jordynne’s most grueling defense to date and quite possibly could spell the end to a very impressive first reign with the strap.

Listed below are the three reasons why I believe Jordynne Grace’s reign will come to an end at the hands of the Virtuosa at Slammiversary.
