Ivelisse Talks What's Next For Her

I feel like with the WWE tryout it’s definitely moving in the right direction and the direction that I wanted, which makes me really happy. Especially after this year, these three years that have really tested my soul. I feel like I have no words how happy I feel on how this year is starting off. What’s next right now,  honestly I’m not really trying to book myself like crazy, and get all crazy. I really want to take this time to really really organize myself for at least this next month, to really organize myself, for whatever good amount of work that will come from the tryout whether it’s WWE or whatever that might be, I want to be 100% ready, mentally, physically in every way shape or form….I want to be able to take on this year as the best version of myself that I possibly can be in every aspect. 

Ivelisse Talks About Her Future Dream Matches And Who She’s Watching: 

Like I said, I usually love wrestling whoever is in front of me. Every match is like an utter puzzle for me and I love, love the creative process of figuring out how two characters can unravel within a squared circle. Lately, most of the people that I want to work have been taken to WWE already. Now that I feel like that WWE is expanding, you know, within the UK, and things like that, it’s leaving a lot of space for a lot of new talent that I haven't really been able to get a feel for only really been. I’ve only been able to get a feel for it in like the indie’s, some new faces SHINE and Ladies Night Out. Now I’m seeing new faces… I still would want to wrestle Asuka, we would have an insane match, we would mirror each other a lot. Kairi Sane, and in the indie’s I’ve seen a few girls with a lot of potential
