It was mentioned last week that Lucha Underground's Ivelisse sustained a nasty injury on the same ankle that she tore up last year. On last night's episode of the Wrestling Inc Podcast, I revealed exclusively that the Lucha Undeground Trios Champion said that she's ahead of schedule as it pertained to her most recent injury.
When I spoke to Ivelisse this week, she expanded on that, saying that going through the first injury last year really has helped her, even early on.
"It was tough to mentally process it even happening again. I learned so much from the first injury that this one's like nothing. My foot almost looks normal, so the healing is going Wolverine like, super fast. I've done everything I learned in favor of healing from the last time I got injured," she said. "I'm pretty optimistic right now. I might be back pretty fast."
Ivelisse said that she was initially told that she'd have to be in a boot, and maybe even undergo surgery. However, she still has to see a specialist. Overall, she envisions a quicker return than her last injury.
"I don't know 100 percent. I still have to see the specialist. I was told before that I'd have a boot for 6-8 weeks or I'd have to have a surgery, because that wasn't that doctor's specialty. I had two fractures of smaller bones in my ankle, and a grade two sprain of the ligament. It's a little more than last time, but I learned so much from the first one. I was out for so long because I didn't do what I was supposed to do. I stayed working and flying, which I shouldn't do. I had never fractured a bone before and did so many things I wasn't supposed to do including still working instead of letting the bone heal up. I kind of prolonged the healing process unknowingly. This time I am so beyond prepared that it's healing lightning fast," she said.
