Zelina Vega, a consistently hardworking WWE superstar, has encountered yet another setback in her career. RAW General Manager GM Adam Pearce disclosed that Vega sustained an undisclosed injury, rendering her unable to compete in her scheduled first-round match against Shayna Baszler in the Queen of the Ring tournament at an upcoming WWE Live Event.

Pearce further added that Maxxine Dupri would step in as her replacement in the tournament. This unforeseen turn of events adds another name to the growing list of WWE superstars sidelined due to injuries, casting a shadow over the highly anticipated King and Queen of the Ring tournament.

After receiving a massive opportunity in her young WWE career, the student of the Alpha Academy took to her Instagram stories to reflect on getting the chance to win the prestigious accolade in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

“GPS said it’s my turn.”


The tournament has been marred by injuries since its inception, with notable names like Drew McIntyre, Asuka, and Bobby Lashley forced to withdraw due to different injuries. Drew’s elbow injury, Asuka’s undisclosed injury, and Lashley’s setback have already reshaped the tournament landscape. Now, with Vega joining the ranks of the injured, the path to the King and Queen of the Ring finals in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, has become increasingly unpredictable.

As for Maxxine Dupri, the insertion into the Queen of the Ring tournament gives her a chance to rise above the odds in an opponent like Shayna Baszler and display her prowess as an in-ring competitor.
