Ivelisse Comments On Being Held Hostage By Lucha Underground Contract

Ivelisse was a prominent character during the first four seasons of Lucha Underground. However, she asked for her release back in January due to the feeling she had been held hostage.

Ivelisse spoke with WrestleZone on several things including her tenure with Lucha Underground.

On her remarks about feeling held hostage in Lucha Underground:

“Well, yeah, like you said, it was never anything ill-intended. I went public with it—I didn’t know what else to humanly possibly do to fix my situation. And just, unhappiness. But it was just, it’s a great show. There is a lot of great people behind it and everything, it’s just, sometimes, when there’s too many people involved some people try to take things into a direction where it just doesn’t fit. And if it doesn’t fit then, you know, there’s nothing wrong or right, it’s just—if it doesn’t fit it doesn’t fit. Not on the same page for the talent. It really was down to the fact that, the whole thing of wanting to keep a talent stuck on a contract to a TV show. Like, that’s just not realistically possible or fair or right. That was just really it. It’s great. Great show, great people, every time you go it’s fun, they treated us very well, and everything. But just that contract part was just too unrealistic, unfortunately.”

Ivelisse was finally able to get her release from Lucha Underground, and will now be wrestling in All Elite Wrestling’s Casino Battle Royal during All Out, which takes place on August 31st.
