Ivelisse Vélez, who appeared in Florida Championship Wrestling as Sofia Cortez, says she has been released by WWE.

She announced Saturday on Twitter, "I, as well, have been released by WWE. Sorry my #Soljas...."

Vélez, who began her professional wrestling career in 2005 in Puerto Rico, rose to prominence as a contestant on Tough Enough last year, a televised competition that awarded the winner a WWE contract. Vélez was eliminated from the competition due to injury, but offered a contract in November. She had been appearing on WWE NXT as of late.
