Zelina Vega is a pretty big deal at WWE currently. She’s one of the very few superstars who swam against the tides of talent releases and actually joined back WWE. She was 10-years-old when she lost her father in the 9/11 terror attacks, and she took some time to remember him today.

Vega was recently unpleased after she didn’t get chance to wrestle alongside Carmella at the Madison Square Garden show at SmackDown. The SmackDown performer, however, has a pretty significant day today.

Zelina Vega is also going to be a special part of the 9/11 ceremony. She will read names and represent her father at the special event. The 30-year old superstar took to Twitter in order to give ode to her father’s sacrifice. She tweeted with many pictures of herself with him alongside the caption:

For you, always.
No matter what.
I love you dad.
I hope I make you proud.


The WWE superstar recently explained why she thinks John Cena is “the puppet master.” She also revealed that the very reason she came back to WWE is because it keeps her closer to her husband Malakai Black.
