Former WWE developmental talent, Ivelisse Velez — aka Sofia Cortez — worked a tryout match for TNA this past Thursday in Orlando, Florida.
Velez faced veteran Knockout, Tara, in the match.
The former Tough Enough contestant was released by WWE in August.
Speaking on Velez’s tryout, Tara tells Diva Dirt exclusively: “I thought she did amazing.”
“I liked her a lot,” says the former Knockouts Champion. “I heard she was Puerto Rican, and I’m half Puerto Rican. I was like, ‘Oh my god, that’s awesome to have a Puerto Rican girl. You should go all out with the Puerto Rican thing, like Carlito [and] the Colons. I’m all about [showcasing] ethnicity. I’m a big fan of that.”
“She did very well. We’ll see what they [TNA management] say.”
Tara also spoke about former WWE Diva Jillian Hall’s recent tryout. Stay tuned for our exclusive interview to hear her comments!
