It seems that the Knockouts division may be gaining a new wrestler.
Former WWE Diva and Tough Enough competitor, Ivelisse Velez, has teased that she will appear on Impact Wrestling next week.
Velez sent out a tweet stating: “The Huntress will be making an IMPACT this Thursday! #KnowWhatIMean #TuneIn #OnTheRise”.
It’s not known at this time what her role on the show will be, but if true, this looks to be a great signing for the company.
Ivelisse — who was known as Sofia Cortez in WWE — had a tryout with TNA last year against Tara.
Tara told Diva Dirt exclusively: “I thought she did amazing. I liked her a lot. 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.”
UPDATE: PWInsider is reporting that Ivelisse will be taking part in the next TNA Gutcheck challenge.
