Ivelisse Praises SHINE As A Promotion That Has Always Allowed Her To Be Herself

Ivelisse is open to one day trying again in AEW but she also names SHINE Wrestling as one promotion where she has always enjoyed her experience.

For a short while, Ivelisse was a part of the AEW women's roster. Now that she and the promotion have parted ways, Ivelisse is looking forward to continuing to be a part of the growth of women's wrestling and says that there is one promotion that has always allowed her to do that to the best of her ability, SHINE.

Ivelisse was recently a guest on Women’s Wrestling Talk where she explained why SHINE was always the best fit for her. The team at Women's Wrestling Talk sent over the following quote:

"I would kind of have to say two because major companies and independent companies are just so it's such an entirely different world; that I would have to say one of each. So, if I would say one, from the independent side, I would say SHINE because SHINE has been that platform that I was able… it was the first and longest platform that has always allowed me to be myself in every way shape, or form. And that's like the main stage where I've been able to show the world who I am and the caliber of performer that I am. I mean to the point where when I left WWE, them giving me that chance was how I was able to climb the ranks in women's wrestling on a whole... on like literally debuting in the top 10 of PWI. Like, it was the best, the best year of my career at that time. So, I would definitely say that I'm still incredibly grateful to SHINE for that, and in major companies, I would say, like you said, if I had a magic wand and I could erase politics, I would say AEW despite the misunderstanding. I was still able to be completely utterly myself, Ivelisse "La Sicaria".

"The misunderstandings only happened in the end. So, throughout that, even as I was being presented, which, you know, I feel I could, like, I love doing tag team stuff and everything like that, but also, I obviously also am a very accomplished singles competitor as well. I was looking forward to it all, anything and everything, to just give my entire all despite, you know, not being able to show the AEW universe, those other elements of who I am, etc. I still feel like it is the platform that I could best present who "La Sicaria" is, and everything that has to do with my character, everything that has to do with what I could deliver in every department. So, unfortunately, you know, it's just that misunderstanding. But again, if that meant there was a magic wand, or if there was somehow, someway some miracle that could happen in life, and this misunderstanding could be resolved. I'll say AEW."
