Former NXT Superstar Reveals Name Behind Her WWE Firing

Lucha Libre Star and former WWE NXT Superstar Ivelisse recently spoke with WSVN-TV Entertainment Reporter Chris Van Vliet before Coastal Championship Wrestling’s Cinco De Mayo show in Miami, FL. Here are some highlights:

Being fired from WWE right before the Women’s Evolution began:

“It’s kind of bittersweet that that’s what I was trying to fight for when I was in WWE. I did it at the wrong time I suppose, just a little bit before it was time to do that. At that time Bill DeMott was the person that was there and he was kind of a big obstacle for what my goal was there, so right before this women’s evolution. Right after I was released when was Sara Del Rey was signed which pretty much signified an actual change coming. That was very bitter. I probably could have held on a little bit longer and maybe it would have been different, but that’s life and we’ll see what the future holds.”

Standing up to Bill DeMott, who eventually got her fired:

“He has a personality that can become rather quickly a bully type personality. For whatever the reason is in his life, I don’t know, but he has that type of personality and eventually it will catch up to you. At first it works on fear with everyone around them but it catches up. For example, someone like me who isn’t scared to stand up for themselves regardless of the fact that one punch from him and I’d be down. But in my mind, I don’t fear that because if he were to choose to do something like that I would be suing him and who wins in that kind of scenario? A lot of people will be fearful of that but someone will always come along and stand up for themselves and he was able to get rid of me at that point but eventually it all stacks up on you.”

Who she would want to face in a dream match:

“I’d want to wrestle Asuka because we have very, very similar wrestling styles. Like incredibly similar wrestling styles. I think it would mesh really well to be like a martial arts red dragon versus blue dragon type of thing and I’d really like that.”
