UPDATE 2: As an update to earlier, Ivelisse responded to Fightful Select’s request for comment on the earlier story. Ivelisse claimed that she spoke up on mistreatments by an AEW coach, including to other women in the company.

Additionally, Ivelisse said there were other witnesses to this and that Thunder Rosa has been “slandering” her name throughout her AEW tenure and trying to sabotage her position. She stated the following:

“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).”

Also, Ivelisse wrote some follow-up tweets to her one alleging being let go for speaking out about mistreatment. She responded to a fan tweet referencing her infamous match with Thunder Rosa that took place on AEW Dynamite back in September. There were points in the match where it appeared that Rosa and Ivelisse were genuinely going at each other with some stiff shots. At another point, Ivelisse didn’t even appear to be selling Rosa’s offense.

Ivelisse said on that matchup and claims of her “no selling,” “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.”

At one point, another user said he had heard rumors of Ivelisse “stealing things from the locker room.” She responded, “Definitely ****ING IDIOTICLY UNTRUE.”

She also commented on tweets from earlier today from AEW referee Frank Gastineau and Thunder Rosa, which appeared to be referencing Thunder Rosa. At one point, Gastineau posted a tweet, allegedly quoting Ivelisse, saying, “My character would never take that finish.” The now ex-AEW wrestler stated on that rumor, “What makes you think that was to me thats ****ing dumb, those words have never left my mouth dumbass.”

UPDATE: Fightful Select has an update with additional details on Ivelisse exiting AEW. Per the report, as early as March 20, talents were saying that Ivelisse was not expected to remain with the company. When it appeared Diamante was recently working as a solo act for over a month, it was stated that Ivelisse had not been at the AEW TV tapings as of late.

When Fightful later reached out to Ivelisse about two weeks ago, she stated that she was still with AEW. However, other wrestlers informed Fightful that they did not expect her to return to the company due to “well-known disagreements” backstage with the agents. There were no additional details available on the context or nature of the disagreements.

ORIGINAL: In a post on Twitter, Ivelisse said that she had been ‘let go’ from a company for speaking out about what she claimed was ‘mistreatment’. While she didn’t specify where she was fired from, she had been most recently working for AEW. It was previously reported that the reason Ivelisse hadn’t been on AEW programming lately was because there was an issue between her and a few of the coaches. At the time, AEW simply wasn’t booking her but she was still technically working with them. She had a per-event deal and wasn’t on a full-time contract.

She wrote: “History repeats itself unfortunately. I speak up about mistreatment and get let go. Thats life.
