Deonna Purrazzo & Taya Valkyrie Segment 

Deonna Purrazzo: You know, Kim, I don’t understand what Taya Valkyrie’s problem with us is. I mean, I defeated her best friend and retain my Knockouts Championship at Final Resolution. And instead of gracefully accepting defeat, she got in our faces. And then again, when Taya cost her team the Knockouts Tag Team Tournament, she couldn’t accept it, she blamed us instead. Now, Taya wants an opportunity to take my Knockouts Championship from me.

She’s gonna get her opportunity at Hard To Kill, but I guess the only thing I don’t understand, the one question I have for Taya Valkyrie is, what happens when I lock in The Fujiwara Arm-Bar? What happens if I hit Costa Nostra? I’m gonna prove to the world once again, I am everything I say I am, Kim. I’m “The Virtuosa.” I am the greatest technical women’s wrestler in the world. I am the first ever Iron Woman of IMPACT Wrestling. And at Hard To Kill, I guess the only question Taya is, do you finally accept reality or do you continue this downward spiral of delusion and denial?

Taya Valkyrie: Deonna, Deonna, Deonna, you really are delusional. But, I’m gonna make it real easy for you. I am the longest reigning Knockouts Champion in IMPACT Wrestling history. And although your time here has been like, super impressive, you’ve never faced me. Not here, not anywhere. And although you may probably think that I’ve been just like a bit distracted with Wrestle House, The Wedding, The Trial, The Tag Tournament, I’ve never lost focus of what I want. And what I want is that Knockouts Championship.

Deonna Purrazzo: You mean the Knockouts Championship you lost to Jordynne Grace, right? The Knockouts Championship that I won from Jordynne Grace at Slammiversary, this one, my title? Let’s be real for a second, Taya, let’s be real. Your husband is gone, your manager wants nothing to do with you and I guess it’s only a matter of time until your best friend Rosemary leaves your side too. I know for a fact that you were an amazing Knockouts Champion, I know that. But your time has come and gone. Look around, look around, Kim, look at what I’ve done, look at what I’ve cultivated in this Knockouts Division since I’ve been here. We should call this, The Age Of The Virtuosa. And the last thing you have to cling to, Taya, I’m the longest reigning Knockouts Champion of all-time. But when I defeat you at Hard To Kill, when I break your arm at Hard To Kill, not even that one last accolade that you cling to will matter anymore.

Taya Valkyrie: Oh, a husband jab, how original from The Virtuosa? I was hoping for something a little bit more, creative. You know, Deonna, I just think you’re scared. You’re scared of me, you’re scared of the unknown, and you’re scared because you know I’m going to humiliate you in front of everybody. At Hard To Kill, not only am I going to become a two-time IMPACT Wrestling Knockouts Champion, but I am going to end the age of The Virutosa and welcome Le Wera de le Huerra.
