Zelina Vega’s stock has been on a continuous rise ever since she returned to WWE last year. While Vega did have to go on a hiatus again due to injury, she remained relevant on social media and fans didn’t forget her either. She joined Legado Del Fantasma last year and it appears that it was not part of the original plan.
After a long hiatus because of injury, Zelina Vega made her return on Friday Night Smackdown last year, where she came back alongside Legado Del Fantasma. That move took people by surprise, as Vega ended up taking Elektra Lopez’s spot.
Prior to working with Zelina, Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, and Cruz Del Toro were mainstays of NXT and had seen a great deal of success on WWE’s developmental brand for a long time.
While speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Zelina Vega talked about joining Legado Del Fantasma. The former Queen of the Ring revealed that her joining the group was not originally the plan and it came as a surprise to her.
“I mean I was surprised if I’m being honest, it was a surprise for me because it wasn’t exactly the plan. It only became the plan literally the day before. But for me I was like ‘ok, this is like a whole new challenge’.” Vega added: “Of course for me I’d love to see all of us draped in gold because that’s the vision that the goal right there.”
The group is now working as the Latino World Order after Rey Mysterio invited them to reform the legendary stable. As for Zelina Vega, she wants a shot at Rhea Ripley’s Smackdown Women’s Title. We’ll have to wait and see if she will get a title shot at WWE Backlash.
