Ivelisse Comments On Her Real Life Feud With Tessa Blanchard

Sorry if I put this in the wrong section. I don't know where to put this(Ivelisse isn't signed with anyone) so I am putting it here lol.

Quote:
Former Lucha Underground Trios Champion, Ivelisse, recently spoke with Women's Wrestling Weekly about her time working with LU. Despite being outspoken toward management for holding her "hostage" near the end of her contract, Ivelisse says that she enjoyed the work that resulted from her time with the promotion.

"I really enjoyed all of the work that I did with Lucha Underground. It was a very big merge from one completely different world to another completely different world of pro wrestling," Ivelisse explained. "Even though it's entertainment, it's still two completely, utterly different systems... The number one is them trying to have a hold over the talent as if they were a wrestling company, because they are not a wrestling company. They are a wrestling niche show. To expect that type of exclusivity from a professional wrestler is just completely unrealistic. That was really the number one problem from the very beginning, and we all did what we could from each side, from the wrestlers and their part, to try to fix it.

"It wasn't really about money - it was too much of a dark time in between and the places that they were doing partnerships with, like TNA and stuff like that, the politics side weren't helping me personally, and my situation personally was not working for me," Ivelisse continued. "I had no other options, so I was just completely stuck, and being in the dark that long, and also just having broken my ankle, and me personally, it didn't help me at all. It all added up... and another thing too that played a part is that I wasn't 100% on the same page of what I wanted out of my work with Lucha underground, with the writers. I'm not knocking on the work they did for others - personally, for my work, we weren't always on the same page. But regardless, we did what we could to find a happy medium. More so than anything, it was just down to that there was no way to make up for that, like those long dark times without knowing."

The "politics" in TNA/Impact Wrestling that Ivelisse referred to are likely the comments she had made in the past to former Impact Knockouts Champion, Tessa Blanchard. As previously reported, Blanchard used her Twitter to call out Ivelisse for claiming that Blanchard's family name had influenced her status in professional wrestling. Her exact words to Blanchard were, 'I never had a family name, I had to work for everything I have from the streets.'

Since that exchange and the comments that resulted from it, Ivelisse doesn't want to deal with the "drama" of the situation. She claims that she was putting Blanchard over after their encounter with one another.

"I'm not surprised [that happened] - there are a lot of other things people have told me. It's just wrestling," Ivelisse stated. "I hate that drama; I hate all that stuff that people make up. It drives me crazy. I try hard to stay away from it, so it gives them the leeway to make more stuff up. I try to stay in my lane and stay focused... It's honestly kind of sad.

"After our last match or our last interaction - this is actually real, not made up - after that interaction, I was actually putting her over from the match and all these things I've heard... I didn't want to deal with that. It sucks, period. I hate that but it is what it is. It exists in the wrestling world."

You can see the full Twitter exchange between Ivelisse, Tessa Blanchard, and Squared Circle Sirens' Casey Michael from earlier this year below:

The thing with Tessa is despite her family, and despite her age, she's an incredible talent already. The Blanchard name will always open doors for her, but she busts her ass and delivers big time.

Re: Ivelisse Comments On Her Real Life Feud With Tessa Blanchard

Tessa is probably my favorite woman wrestler to watch today, but I won't let that influence what I'm about to say.

I liked Ivelisse in LU and I'd love to see her show up somewhere else. However, it probably isn't smart to air your dirty laundry for the world to see when you are trying to get work somewhere else. Maybe Tessa had something to do with it, maybe she didn't, but if you are going to butt heads with Tessa, make it look like you can't work with her, and also looking to get booked for Impact, sorry, but Impact is going to pick Tessa every time since she's like their MVP this year (her and Sami Callihan anyway).

I think Matt Riddle is kind of in a similar boat with NXT. Gets over, great presentation and look, and its like the sky is the limit with him. However, it probably isn't very smart to take to Twitter and start bad mouthing Goldberg when the company is promoting a major match between he and Undertaker and take jabs at other people along the way. Part of me thinks that Riddle's recent losses came as a result of him mouthing off and stirring shit up online, which is not the kind of attention you want to have.

God, I just thought. Could you imagine if social media was around when Shawn Michaels was a main eventer in 96-97? Jesus Christ that could have been quite the shit show.

Re: Ivelisse Comments On Her Real Life Feud With Tessa Blanchard

Ivelisse remains completely unemployable in a wrestler's market. Think about that and draw your own conclusions. Even on an indie level she struggles to get booked one or two times a month for minor promotions.

Re: Ivelisse Comments On Her Real Life Feud With Tessa Blanchard

Damn, I didn't realize Ivelisse was so difficult to deal with. That's not going to work out for her in the long run. Especially with a stand up personality like Tessa. A lot of these wrestlers would do well to drop social media or get someone else to do it for them.

Social media is the worst double edged sword for people with any kind of notoriety or fame.

Don't use it, and you are cutting yourself off from branding potential and getting your name out there.

If you use it poorly, you'll wind up with your foot in your mouth and attention you don't want.

It is a constant tightrope act.

That's why I'm like get someone to run it for her. That way she always had a scapegoat.

Kawhi Leanard doesnt use social media. He even made a joke about going viral and having no idea till a friend texted him. A few wrestlers have someone else manage their social media. Example Brock Lesnar and Hulk Hogan. I think that would be a good middle ground. When you are that big, you can have the media and others on social media do the work with out having to look at your ohone all the time.

Re: Ivelisse Comments On Her Real Life Feud With Tessa Blanchard

Tessa is not the easiest human being in the world to work with, that is not a secret in the wrestling world.

If you are somebody who also stands up for themselves and you clash with Tessa, there are going to be fireworks.
