ROH Star Injured, Okada Speaks French (Video), Deonna Purrazzo On Origin Of Her "Virtuosa" Nickname

- Above, ROH Star Deonna Purrazzo spoke with AMBY about being into wrestling at a young age with her brother, wanting a dog with her boyfriend (Marty Scurll), and the origin of her "Virtuosa" nickname.

"When I first started working for Ring of Honor, they were like, 'You need a moniker! You're name is great, but you need something else,'" Purrazzo said. "It was a process because I didn't just want to be 'The Technician' or 'The Mechanic' and it was like, how do I come up with something that was pretty, more feminine. So, I just Googled all sorts of translations for someone who excels at something, and Google searched all these things in Italian, and 'Virtuosa' was something that I found."
