Axiom, the former A-Kid, made his in-ring debut under this new gimmick on Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT by defeating Dante Chen in singles action.
Former WWE star Chelsea Green reacted to the new character’s entrance on Twitter and noted it ‘Axiom’ was very similar to an idea that Deonna Purrazzo had pitched while in the company.
The vignettes for Axiom were similar to the early ones that Purrazzo had in Impact Wrestling.
Purrazzo signed with WWE in 2018 and worked for the company for two years before being let go in April 2020. Since then, Purrazzo has found a lot of success in several promotions as she has held the Impact Wrestling Knockouts, AAA Reina De Reinas, and ROH Women’s titles.
Purrazzo lost the ROH Women’s Championship to interim title holder Mercedes Martinez in May on an episode of AEW Dynamite. Martinez will defend the gold at this Saturday’s Death Before Dishonor event.
