Deonna Purrazzo, the ROH Women’s World Champion, will make her AEW debut on Dynamite, which airs next week.
Purrazzo will fight Interim ROH Women’s World Champion Mercedes Martinez to determine the final ROH Women’s World Champion. After beating Rok-C in January, the Virtuosa became the second female to hold the gold. She has become a fighting champion since then.
Martinez was named temporary champion when ROH was acquired by Tony Khan.
There was a scheduling dispute between IMPACT and ROH’s comeback event on April 1 due to Purrazzo’s contract with the company. Martinez came in to face Willow Nightingale in the interim championship match. Now, next Wednesday, either Martinez or Purrazzo will emerge as the indisputable champion.
In addition to next week’s Dynamite, on Friday on Rampage, Nightingale will join up with Trish Adora and Skye Blue to battle TBS Champion Jade Cargill, Kiera Hogan, and Red Velvet in a trios match.
