Yulisa Leon, who was released by WWE this past September, has adopted the new ring name of Julissa.
In a recent interview with TJ Sports, Julissa revealed that she is now involved with the CRASH-associated KAOZ Lucha Libre promotion which is based out of Monterrey, Mexico. She said,
“I belong to KAOZ and we will surprise a lot of people. We have a lot of plans & surprises set and we will go forward from there.”
Julissa defeated Dulce Tormenta on CRASH’s November 3rd show to win The Crash Women’s Championship.
Mansoor enjoyed a lengthy winning streak on WWE television, and the former WWE Superstar believes it hurt his chances of winning a title.
Mansoor reached 49 straight victories on WWE Main Event and 205 Live before losing during his RAW debut in 2021 via disqualification.
During a recent Reddit AMA, Mansoor revealed that the winning streak was the result of a mandate from WWE higher-ups and that it meant he was never considered for a title opportunity. He wrote,
“I’m proud of that 205 run and was glad I got the opportunity to show more of what I was capable of. Sadly, the streak was merely a byproduct of a mandate from up top that I couldn’t lose, so it was never going to lead into anything.”
He continued, “I was told I couldn’t even lose by being the person not pinned in a tag or multi-man match, so winning the title was out of the question. Very creatively stifling and made it so I couldn’t regularly appear on NXT.”
WWE released Mansoor this past September following the WWE-UFC merger into TKO Group Holdings under the Endeavor Group.
