Former Tough Enough contestant, Ivelisse Velez, was spotted on Raw last night by hawk-eyed viewers during a cutaway to the WWE lockerroom while Vince McMahon made his entrance at the top of the show.
Ivelisse was seen standing next to Goldust in the lockerroom where all of the Superstars were watching the monitor.
It looks like Ivelisse is part of a group traveling to Raw and SmackDown this week. Ivelisse’s boyfriend, a fellow wrestler, wrote on Twitter yesterday: “On the way to green bay,WI with @ivelissewwe @samuraydelsol and @jimmyjacobsx #roadtrips.” Green Bay was the site of Raw last night.
Following Raw, he updated: “On the road from green bay to miniapolis minesota [sic] after @wwe #raw with @ivelissewwe @samuraydelsol and @jimmyjacobsx #howarewestillup?” Tonight’s SmackDown taping will emanate from Minneapolis.
From the sounds of it, the group are taking part in tryouts for WWE.
Thoughts: Hopefully this is a good sign that Ivie will join fellow contestants Christina and Ariane in FCW. Fingers crossed.
