Zelina Vega came back to WWE back in 2021 after she was released for violating the company’s ban on third-party sites. Regardless, things are much better now in WWE, and she couldn’t be happier. In fact, she recently replaced another female Superstar in surprising fashion.
Vega was away from WWE since April of this year due to injury. Fans continued to wonder when she would come back as well. After so many months, Zelina Vega finally made her return on last week’s Smackdown, where she came back alongside Legado Del Fantasma.
Many people believed that Elektra Lopez was going to be joining Legado Del Fantasma, but that was not the case whatsoever. In fact, Lopez was ridiculed for a tweet that did not age well.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that WWE originally told Lopez that she would remain part of the stable moving forward and even had a flight out to Worcester booked.
However, WWE decided to go with Vega instead of Lopez because Legado Del Fantasma’s first feud will be against Hit Row, and the company wants the women from both factions to wrestle each other. We will have to wait and see how their feud will develop in the coming weeks.
