WWE NXT talent Deonna Purrazzo recently appeared on The Blake And Sal Show and below are some interview highlights:

On her childhood pro wrestling inspirations:

“My biggest inspiration was Trish Stratus. I started watching wrestling when I was nine and that’s when I saw Trish and I saw Lita, Jazz, Jacqueline, Victoria, all of them and seeing them wrestle made know that I could do that one day.”

On working with Nia Jax in her first NXT match:

“You can’t see it but I think I cried the whole match. Not because I was hurt, not because she was rough or anything but I was so thankful to be there and so nervous.”

Is she looking for a permanent NXT contract or does she want to keep working for different promotions?:

“I’m really happy doing everything I’ve able to do. I get to work for NXT, I get to work for TNA and Ring of Honor and do all these big companies all at once and that’s something that’s never been done before.”
