According to Sapp, “There were rumors backstage that Purrazzo was going to leave the company in October, which led to an offer finally being made.”

This is particularly interesting on a number of fronts. The least of which being that two of the three wrestlers who were offered contracts recently currently hold titles within the company. Purrazzo is the 55th holder of the Impact Knockout’s title. Recently defending it against former champion Jordynne Grace in a 60 minute Iron Man match on Impact’s weekly television program on AXS TV.

Alex Shelley is one-half of the Motor City Machine Guns along with Chris Sabin, The Machine Guns are the current Impact Tag team champions. Most recently defending their titles against former champions The North. Also on Impact’s weekly television offering.

Former Impact World Champion EC3 is currently the only person who was offered a contract who has not to this point been a focal point of in-ring action on weekly television for the company. He is currently in a program with the current TNA World Champion, Moose. This program has been primarily relegated to backstage segments without EC3 having to be physically on set.

His contract offer could be in relation to recent rumors that were circling about the former WWE talent signing with and appearing on Ring Of Honor television, news that was also broken on Those tapings, which included his supposed debut, began airing this past Saturday night. Ring of Honor returned to the airwaves with the reestablishment of their Pure title, which has been dormant since Bryan Danielson unified it with the Ring Of Honor Championship in 2006, and a tournament to determine its new champion.

Interestingly enough, Shelley’s tag partner, and former X Division titleholder Chris Sabin was not named in the report by Sapp. Whether this means that he is currently under contract or has already declined the offer from Impact Wrestling, is currently unknown.
