A quick mini-blog.
That title took quite a bit of time to come up with. Last night on Monday Night Raw, Deonna Purrazzo came out to face Asuka, and the Reddit community went up in flames at the live reactions.
Apparently, Redditors were commenting that she looked “fat”. /r/SquaredCircle had a fucking conniption about it, with the usual white knight assholes crying and praying that “any woman who comes here knows they don’t represent us!!!” Another rocket scientist even had to point out that we have to “Be cognizant that many Trump supporters post here”. Because Orange Man Bad, of course. He must be behind this!
Now, I’ll be the first to say that the internet is full of the biggest shitbags on the planet. But here’s the truth, guys: She looked fat.
She did. Her belly was clearly protruding, and it was really obvious when she was breathing heavy. She simply did not look in shape for a WWE superstar. It’s a fact.
Now, did she look fat if she was walking into a local bar in New Jersey? Not at all. As my longtime hateful rival “Heartbreak” Biz said in our group chat, would the lowlives on the internet calling her fat cream their pants if she gave them a lapdance? Absolutely.
Deonna Purrazzo is a beautiful woman.
However, we’re not comparing Deonna Purrazzo to your run of the mill girl at the bar.
She is being compared to Charlotte Flair. Bayley. Carmella. These are sculpted athletes/fitness models with washboard abs. Aside from women like Nia Jax and Tamina, who are obviously built for their roles, these women are nearly flawless looking. Ember Moon can be made an argument for, but she is more “thick” than flabby.
If you want to climb into a WWE ring, I’m sorry, but look is a major factor. This isn’t a legitimate sport. It’s a performance piece. Anybody who says that they aren’t paying attention to the body of a hot woman in skin-tight spandex jumping and bouncing all over the ring is either astronomically gay or lying to you. There’s no in-between.
And I’m equal opportunity! Aleister Black has an awful body for WWE.
Check out Aleister Black vs Buddy Murphy this week at TLC.
Black has the tattoos. The entrance. The music. The distinguished moveset.
But Buddy Murphy looks like a WWE wrestler. Is Aleister Black in good shape if he was hanging out at the local YMCA with the Redditors who pretend the female superstars aren’t partially sex objects? Of course.
But is Aleister Black in good shape when he stands next to Seth Rollins or Roman Reigns? Not even close. It’s like a different league.
In summary: Deonna Purrazzo is an attractive, healthy woman. She showed lots of moxie in her personality as well. But acting like her body is not a part of her overall makeup as a wrestler is naive at best.
