Zelina Vega was released from WWE last week. Since then the discussion of unionizing in WWE has been discussed many times. She has not had the best week.
During her Twitch stream, Zelina Vega opened up to her fans. She described the past week as “literal hell,” but she was “pleasantly surprised” because people didn’t look at her like “the devil” as she thought they might.
Vega said that once fans get to know her, and they hear the story she puts out, then they will understand.
“The past week has been hell. Literal hell. Friday was the worst day of my life, well, since 2001. When you hear about me in the social media world, sometimes misinformation can be spread. It’s important for me to get you guys to know me. I was someone who let people walk all over me. I was very insecure and I didn’t stand up for myself. Looking at social media, I expected the absolute worst. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought people were going to look at me like the devil. Let’s just say that the narrative has been spun completely out of control and is completely wrong. When people see the real story that I put out, that’s who I am. I’ve learned to grow as a person. I’ve known to realize my worth and stand up for who I am, and appreciate the things I’ve gotten along the way.”
Zelina Vega recently had a very productive meeting with the SAG-AFTRA union. We’ll have to see if anything comes of that. A lot of things would need to happen before pro wrestlers can even come close to unionizing.
