Zelina Vega, whose career has been on an upward trajectory since her return to WWE in 2022, is known for her work as a WWE Superstar. However, there have been accusations against her regarding a prop maker. Reports suggest that Vega has been accused of not compensating the prop maker for their work.

A prop maker named mecha_musume on Instagram accused Zelina Vega of underpaying them for a custom project and causing them significant inconvenience. According to the prop maker, they designed, printed, and hand-stoned various items for Vega, including a custom Mecha Chancla, cuffs, Mech wings, and a headset, which Vega allegedly received for a fraction of their true value.

The prop maker claims that Vega provided the wrong address, resulting in damage to some of the items during shipping. Additionally, they mention that Vega returned the items and disputed the payment without deducting the items she kept. The prop maker expresses frustration with the situation, stating that the project required substantial time and effort, impacting their ability to take on other orders.

The prop maker also discusses their disappointment in working with celebrities and influencers, noting the expectation for discounted or free services and excessive labor without proper compensation. This experience has led them to reconsider working with celebrities in the future.


WWE Wrestler Zelina Vega with the custom Mecha Chancla we designed, printed and hand stoned one by one that she practically got for free and severely under paid me for.

Also wasted my time on a pair of cuffs, Mech wings and headset, all hand stoned. She gave me the wrong address which resulted in my wings getting cooked in the hot 100 degree florida sun, melting it essentially, having to reship it, and then finding out the time specified was too late, then having a piece detach due to melted pieces from again…it getting damaged from being delivered to her old address that she THOUGHT she could pick it up from. It was literally something so fixable and yet she said it was my fault and a skill issue as well as her “assistant” saying I’m unprofessional for even saying it’s anything but my work and my skills suck. She got all that (commission valued at $2.5k) for $900 with a promise of exposure and I had to refund multiple customers and reject new orders to get this done, hours upon hours of 3d designing everything, bedazzling everything one by one, custom painting everything, attaching LEDs, crystalizzing the transparent parts of the wings, etc. A labor that should have taken months, I did in 2 and a half to 3 weeks non stop breaks and no sleep. And guess what? Only for her to return everything, dispute the total amount without deducting what she kept via paypal and keeping the chancla and headset for practically change. All of that…for nothing and to have expensive stuff for Temu price. As a Puerto Rican, you are literally a disgrace and 100% not for your people, let alone small businesses.

Safe to say I will never work with a celebrity that tries to scam me for cheap services and practically free items again and I will never bedazzle either, but still pretty cool to witness my piece on TV and the world seeing it. Of course there’s no tag, but that’s nothing new guys.

I definitely don’t want to work with celebrities or influencers anymore, they always expect super cheap or free stuff and excessive labor just because it’s them. I AM HUMAN TOO, I HAVE BILLS TO PAY, I NEED TO EAT. THIS IS NOT A CHINESE SWEATSHOP OR MAJOR CORP, ITS A ONE WOMAN ARMY.

Zelina Vega also recently inked long-term deal with WWE, but this is certainly a starling accusation hurled against Zelina Vega. We will have to wait and see whether Vega will respond to the prop maker in the end.
