At IMPACT Emergence, Deonna Purrazzo & Chelsea Green captured the IMPACT Knockouts Tag Team Championships by defeating Rosemary & Taya Valkyrie.

Purrazzo & Green have been longtime friends who have been wanting to team since their days in NXT, which is when VXT was formed with Rachael Ellering.

Speaking on Busted Open Radio, Deonna explained the meaning behind VXT and “Vexed.”

“It started as VXT and it was a play on NXT. It was me, Chelsea, and Rachael when we were in NXT. Rachel came to Chelsea and I with this idea, ‘they are kind of putting emphasis on tag teams, how cool would a trios group of these three dominant women who have traveled together, trained together, wrestled all over the world together, wrestled each other a million times, know each other like the back of your hand, go out there and dominate.’ Chelsea and I were like, ‘Hell yeah, it’s worth a try. If it sticks, great.’ It didn’t. They didn’t understand it. Vexed means to be angry, to leave someone confused, and in disarray. To shake up the situation a little bit. That was very much synonymous with how we felt in NXT. We’re angry, we want an opportunity, we want to prove where we came from and what we did was worth it all and we’re here to be superstars. That same feeling goes into Chelsea and I in IMPACT because we fought for so long to be a tag team, for people to see value in us together, that it works. Best friends can be a tag team. We’re leaving the world vexed,” she said.

Purrazzo said winning the Knockouts Tag Team Titles with Green is up there with winning the IMPACT Knockouts Championship as her top moment in wrestling.
