Update on La Luchadora identity from Smackdown Live, Women’s Champions now flying first class

As we noted over the weekend, Deonna Purrazzo was under the mask as La Luchadora last Tuesday night on Smackdown Live.  I don’t think she has been signed to a contract yet but she will be used on upcoming shows so that is a clear sign that they like her and I wouldn’t be shocked if she was offered a full-time deal soon.

If they want to have Purrazzo revealed as Becky Lynch’s attacker then they do have a storyline explanation if they want to go that route. A couple of weeks ago, Lynch subbed for Purrazzo and made an off-handed comment about giving Alexa Bliss some “real” competition with the implication being that Purrazzo was not good enough to face Bliss. They could also have Mickie James revealed as the attacker. It’s not uncommon for masked wrestler reveals (see: Black Scorpion in WCW in 1990) to be someone other than the original person under the mask.

Speaking of Alexa Bliss, she and Charlotte Flair are now flying first-class. The company recently upgraded flights for their female champions. That has been the case for the male champions so it’s about time.
