Ivelisse Says Lucha Underground Is Refusing To Grant Her Release

Ivelisse posted the following on social media, saying she’s asked for her release from her Lucha Underground contract, but the promotion refuses to grant it:

“I’ve done everything in my power to avoid having to do this but… at this point I literally have no other choice. For a bit over 1 1/2 [years] now, I’ve been battling LU to grant me my release. They convinced me to do S4 under the promise that I’d be released after the season concluded and was still unhappy. They currently are still refusing to do so despite having been told numerous times that they would. This has caused me an unbearable amount of grief for so long now, I really have no words to describe and don’t know what else to do. Being legally held hostage while Pro Wrestling is booming is a matter not to be taken lightly, especially coming from someone who has dedicated their life to their work, it’s everything to me. I am at my wits end, so at this point, regardless what happens from here on out, at the very least my story is told.”

Ivelisse had previously replied to a few comments on Twitter saying she would be shedding some light on “an injustice” soon. She has been with Lucha Underground since season one, and has also appeared for WWE NXT (after her appearance on Tough Enough), AAA and Shine.

Wrestlezone has reached out to Lucha Underground for comment.
