Ivelisse has issued the following statement to Fightful Select (subscription required).
“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).”\

Earlier this month, The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reported “there was an issue with her and ‘a few’ coaches and she’s not being booked right now”. She was previously working under a per-event deal, and not a full-time contract with the company.
Fightful Select (subscription required) added, Ivelisse has not been present at AEW tapings as of late. Some talent within the company believe she will not return to AEW following “well-known disagreements with agents backstage”.
Ivelisse and Diamante won the AEW Deadly Draw women’s tag team tournament last summer, after defeating Allie and Brandi Rhodes.
Prior to joining AEW, she was best known for her work in Lucha Underground, and Shine Wrestling. She currently holds the Shine Championship.
