Ivelisse Velez is a former AEW Wrestler and she recently spoke about leaving All Elite Wrestling. Apparently, she wasn’t being treated well in the company which made her want to quit. She also had issues with Thunder Rose.
“History repeats itself, unfortunately. I speak up about mistreatment and get let go. That's, life,” wrote Ivelisse. Ivelisse was not a full-time AEW wrestler. She was reportedly under some kind of pay-per-appearance contract.
Ivelisse Velez on Leaving AEW due to a variety of problems
According to some reports, many AEW wrestlers actually knew that Ivelisse would leave the company as far back as mid-March. Fightful Select was the outlet that got a statement from her after she left the company.
She first announced her departure on Twitter. “I spoke up about mistreatment from a Coach, even to other women too, there were witnesses and I was the one suspended and left in limbo and just now let go, and nothing has been done at all the entire time about (Thunder Rosa) slandering my name the entire time in AEW and doing everything to sabotage my position there, I kept quiet, (Thunder Rosa) also has a history of getting involved with officials in order to get ahead which there was a lawsuit and everything in (Lucha Underground)”.
Ivelisse then spoke about Thunder Rosa and stated that she was actually not unprofessional. She apparently had other issues with the famous AEW superstar. “Nope, it was her being unprofessional, she had done the same thing in LU as well, and was unprofessional hurting my tag partner s jaw the next match and slandering my name the entire time at aew [thumbs up emoji],” she wrote.
A fan pointed out on Twitter that she has issues with all the promotions that she works at. She responded to that by saying: “Nope I don't, only major companies plagued by politics” A fan then suggested that she makes a statement so no rumors or word of mouth ruin the story.
She simply stated that she does not have the mental capacity at the moment to release a statement. Ivelisse Velez responded, “Too mentally drained to deal with it all, and statement or no statement no one has a right ro slander about people or situations they know nothing about”
