Lucha Underground Star Reveals Who Was Responsible For Her WWE Firing


• Bayley Is Enjoying Her Slow Burning Feud With Sasha Banks

During a recent appearance on Sky Sports Lock Up, former RAW Women’s Champion Bayley talked about her slow building feud with Sasha Banks and what she thinks about facing Sasha at SummerSlam 2018.

Below are the highlights:

On slow building feud with Sasha Banks:

“When I was a kid watching wrestling that’s kind of how it was. You had these long feuds and storylines and you just got more and more interested and you wanted to see where it was going to go. You wanted to see the big blow-off match and I like that stuff because that’s what I grew up watching.

There are so many people on the roster, there’s so much going on and there’s so much content that we sometimes rush through things so maybe that’s what we get used to and what we’re expecting. I’m pretty happy with it. I’m a fan still but I’m not a viewer so perhaps I see it differently but I really enjoy what’s going on. It’s fun and I think it’s going well.”

On what she thinks about facing Sasha Banks at SummerSlam:

“That would be incredible. Any time I get to wrestle Sasha, I always want to do it. For SummerSlam to be in that building, I don’t know if I would be able to hold my tears back, but I’d love to do it. That’s a goal. Hopefully we can do it.”

• Lucha Underground Star Reveals Who Was Responsible For Her WWE Firing

During a recent interview with WSVN-TV, Lucha Underground star Ivelisse talked about getting fired from WWE before the Women’s Evolution began, Bill DeMott getting her fired, who in WWE she would like to face and more.

Below are the highlights:

On getting fired from WWE before the Women’s Evolution began:

“It’s kind of bittersweet that that’s what I was trying to fight for when I was in WWE. I did it at the wrong time I suppose, just a little bit before it was time to do that. At that time Bill DeMott was the person that was there and he was kind of a big obstacle for what my goal was there, so right before this women’s evolution. Right after I was released when was Sara Del Rey was signed which pretty much signified an actual change coming. That was very bitter. I probably could have held on a little bit longer and maybe it would have been different, but that’s life and we’ll see what the future holds.”

On Bill DeMott getting her fired:

“He has a personality that can become rather quickly a bully type personality. For whatever the reason is in his life, I don’t know, but he has that type of personality and eventually it will catch up to you. At first it works on fear with everyone around them but it catches up. For example, someone like me who isn’t scared to stand up for themselves regardless of the fact that one punch from him and I’d be down.

But in my mind, I don’t fear that because if he were to choose to do something like that I would be suing him and who wins in that kind of scenario? A lot of people will be fearful of that but someone will always come along and stand up for themselves and he was able to get rid of me at that point but eventually it all stacks up on you.”

On who in WWE she would like to face:

“I’d want to wrestle Asuka because we have very, very similar wrestling styles. Like incredibly similar wrestling styles. I think it would mesh really well to be like a martial arts red dragon versus blue dragon type of thing and I’d really like that.”
