ALL IN will take place on September 1st, 2018 from the Sears Centre just outside of Chicago, Illinois. The event is being put on by Cody Rhodes and The Young Bucks (Matt Jackson & Nick Jackson), and tickets for the show (10,000 plus) sold out in under 30 minutes.
The event will feature many of the top names on the independent wrestling scene, and has easily been one of the most talked about events of the year already, and it hasn’t even happened yet. One of the names that apparently is no longer available to work the event is Deonna Purazzo.
Cody Rhodes responded to a fan on twitter who has suggested a possible match for Purazzo where he revealed that she is no longer available to work the ALL IN event. This has to speculation that she could have possibly signed a contract with WWE.
You can see the exchange between Cody and the fan on twitter embedded below.
Deonna is unable to do All In. We love her. She’s phenomenal. She’s kicking ass/breaking arms no matter where you see her.

Reports came out back in May that Purazzo had signed a contract with WWE. Nothing has been confirmed by either party as of yet, but with her now no longer being available for ALL IN it would appear that the reports may be true. Purazzo has appeared numerous times on NXT as an enhancement talent, as well as on SmackDown LIVE. It was also reported that Purazzo will report to the Performance Center as early as the end of this month.
Deonna wrestled this past weekend for Ring Of Honor’s, Women of Honor promotion. After the event Purazzo posted the following farewell to her Twitter account.
Thankful to have been apart of something bigger than myself & to have conquered each step of the way 🙏🏽

In addition to Purazzo’s signing with WWE, it is also being rumored that she will participate in the second annual Mae Young Classic later this summer.
