**Given that they are both female second-generation wrestlers of Polynesian descent, she inevitably drew comparisons to Wrestling/{{WWE}}'s Wrestling/TaminaSnuka, especially due to how her serving as Wrestling/GailKim's bodyguard resembled Tamina filling that same role for Wrestling/AJLee.

Then further subverted when Ivelisse came back during the Knockouts Knockdown show and got beat by Lei'D Tapa. Tapa was the Goliath again when she and Wrestling/GailKim split.
