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 is married to AEW star Malakai Black and it appears Vega has revealed how she and Black got into a relationship.

Malakai Black signed with WWE in June 2016. He soon became one of the hottest acts in WWE NXT and went on to become the NXT Champion. Black was released by WWE in June 2020 as part of the budget cuts stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Black and Vega have been married since November 2018 and continue to be one of the most wholesome pro wrestling couples right now. During an #AskZelina Q&A on Twitter, Vega was asked where she met Black.

Zelina Vega revealed that she met him in his DMs and when she was asked further details about whether she just slid into his DMs. Vega played coy and didn’t divulge any more details.


In his DMs


Zelina Vega wants Black to return to WWE. We will have to wait and see whether the couple will be reunited somewhere down the line in the same pro wrestling company, as that might not happen anytime soon.
