Zelina Vega was fired from WWE a few hours after the episode of SmackDown last Friday, a show which she had regularly presented herself to. The Muñeca also commented a few hours later on his farewell to the company, with words of deep desperation in a link on Twitch.
But Twitch, according to what it bounces from America, could have represented his salvation. A detail that would in fact confirm the whole reconstruction on his story that took place in the last few days. According to reports from Dave Meltzer on his 'Wrestling Observer Radio', in fact, WWE had offered Zelina Vega one last chance not to be fired, but the latter would have rejected her.
And the possibility in question concerned precisely his Twitch channel, which he should have definitively and unreservedly abandoned. Which the former manager of Andrade and Angel Garza is said to have instead refused to do.
Zelina Vega would therefore be the first WWE Superstar to pay in a clear and unequivocal way the new "edict" by Vince McMahon, according to which none of his salaried persons can carry on personal activities on web platforms without direct control of the Stamford company.
Update on Zelina Vega's release
A dream has therefore been shattered for Zelina Vega, who, however, if the words of Dave Meltzer were confirmed, would have been faced with a choice. And her decision, extremely clear, would have been to not give up his showcase on the internet.
"I'm sad. My heart is completely broken. But obviously, this is not the last time you will see me," she said after her firing, using Twitch himself. And both concepts seem to summarize in an extremely concise but complete way all that has happened in these tumultuous days.
"I don't know what the future holds for me. If I have to pass as someone who defended herself then, you know there is, that's okay. But I'm equally full of gratitude in my heart. I'm not angry, I just have Because doing all this, being a wrestler, is all I've ever wanted to do in life.
So I don't really know what to say, I don't really know," Zelina Vega added on Twitch. In fact, the trigger for his premature farewell to WWE. According to Sports Illustrated, WWE CEO Vince McMahon took Vega (real name Thea Megan Trinidad Budgen) opening an account on OnlyFans as a breach of her contract, with WWE implementing a new policy forbidding its superstars from running accounts on third-party sites like Cameo and Twitch to supplement their income.
OnlyFans is a site that allows its users to charge a fee to interact one-on-one with fans. Sources said Vega, who is married to current WWE superstar Aleister Black (real name Tom Budgen), seemingly put WWE in a tough position with her OnlyFans account, ultimately deciding to release her.
