On September 11, 2021, WWE paid tribute to the twentieth anniversary of the Twin Towers disaster, which tragically broke the lives of countless innocent people and volunteers who rushed to the scene. However, this tribute excluded a WWE Superstar who is directly connected to this bad accident, namely Zelina Vega, who unfortunately lost her father that day.
In fact, she was supposed to perform on September 10 at Madison Square Garden, also in honor of her father, but the WWE cut her match, between the anger and the sorrow of the fans who felt a lot for the wrestler. Subsequently interviewed in the Cheap Heat Podcast, Zelina then shared that the WWE chairman, Vince McMahon had personally apologised to for the incident.
Meanwhile, a little over 22 years ago, Triple H retained his WWE Championship against Mick Foley inside Hell in a Cell, with the latter's career on the line. The Hardcore Legend has sent a message to The Game regarding the brutal match.
Mick Foley is a WWE legend
Although the wrestler forgave the WWE Chairman, Mick Foley at the time decided to stand up for the woman, as recently recounted in his Foley is Pod. "The last time I interacted with Vince was when I was really upset about what he did with Thea Trinidad [aka Zelina Vega].
Zelina Vega didn't get to work on the 9/11 memorial show. Thea lost her father that day in the towers, and I was damn mad, I was really mad, and I don't know Thea that well, but I've known her since she got on the line, this bright starry-eyed girl.
I said: 'I guarantee you, there is a part of her, every time September 11th arrives, that she is still that 9 or 10-year-old girl who misses her father' And Thea came back to me and said: 'How did you know? That's exactly how I feel."
The reason I'm talking about Thea Trinidad's situation is that Vince called her and apologized. He had also apologized that day, and I would say that he was forgiven. So I think Vince deserves a lot of credit for being able to change his mind, admitting when he's wrong.
He admits when he was wrong and moves on. It's not as important to him as it is to us." Mick Foley made Triple H a megastar through his epic battles with The Game at Royal Rumble and No Way Out 2000. The WWE Hall of Famer's apparent retirement ended almost immediately as he took part in a fatal four-way for the World title at WrestleMania.
After spending years away from the ring, Foley made a comeback in 2004 for an intense rivalry with Randy Orton.
