Gisele Mayordo, known by her ring name Gisele Shaw who is a Filipino professional wrestler, vanished from Impact Wrestling this year previously following her appearance in the promotion in 2018.
At the time with respect to the absence of Shaw from Impact Wrestling, she was competing all over the world and also had a trial with WWE during her stay in the United Kingdom. Trying out for the biggest wrestling promotion in the world, Shaw shared her experience in an exclusive interview with PopCulture.com.
“You know what, it was pretty cool that I’ve never done the whole all women’s tryout because my first draft with them, it was mixed, men and women. So, it was really nice. I also knew the women that were there who were trying out with me. So I think that to have a camaraderie already before coming to the tryouts and to experience that, I feel like it just made us grow our bond closer,” said Shaw.
Shaw has also revealed her learning experience from that. “My takeaway from that was, it was a great experience and it definitely tested me on being in ring shape,” she went on, “being not only just a character, or rather not just be a wrestler, but also if you want to be on TV, there’s so many things to look into, not just the wrestling, but also the performance side, the character side, and I think that was my biggest takeaway from there.”
As per the reports of Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Shaw was appearing in some promotions during her tryout with WWE which even included Progress Wrestling where she won the women’s championship in 2021. In June, Shaw lost the title of this year to Kanji in London. She returned to Impact Wrestling in the month of February, which was additionally a big thing as she’s one of the 20 best female wrestlers in the world.
At present Shaw is preparing herself to compete in Dallas for Lone Star Stampede. It takes place on Friday and Saturday at The Factory in Deep Ellum.
The 33-year-old further stated, “We have action-packed all the time at Impact Wrestling, but what I can say right now though is there’s Deonna [Purrazzo] versus Masha [Slamovich]. I think that’s announced already. They’re both great competitors. I’ve been in the ring with them and they’re just so incredible. This is going to be hard-hitting. I can’t wait to see it myself.”
