WWE released Zelina Vega from her contract, and a lot of fans were very surprised to hear this. Reactions from within the WWE, AEW, and Impact Wrestling locker rooms varied, but this was generally regarded as a shocking move on WWE’s part.
Ringside News has learned that Vega’s firing was not a surprise to everyone in WWE. We spoke to those who “saw this coming.”
A tenured member of the creative team told us that they could “could see it coming” regarding Vega’s release. She was “jobbed out” on television and she wasn’t managing anyone either.
The fact that Zelina Vega sent out a tweet in response to Paige’s message about unionizing didn’t help things. Her OnlyFans page was also an issue as she opened it after WWE’s third party ban announcement.
We have also learned that Zelina Vega sent a legal letter out to at least one pro wrestling news site in an attempt to get coverage of her OnlyFans page taken down.
The tweet that Zelina Vega released about unionizing yesterday came after she was informed of her release. The company didn’t hurry up and fire her within 15 minutes after she put out that tweet.
