Malakai Black reveals the reason behind Zelina Vega wanting to re-sign with WWE

Even though Zelina was drafted to the blue brand of WWE during the 2020 WWE draft, WWE released Vega from her contract the following month.

However, we saw Zelina return to WWE in July 2021. A few months back, Zelina’s husband, Malakai Black, talked about her return to WWE on Chris Jericho’s Talk Is Jericho podcast. Black revealed Vega wanted to re-sign with WWE because she wanted to spend more time with Black. But unfortunately, Black got released before Zelina returned to the company.

Black said (h/t: Sportskeeda), “Johnny Ace calls me, and even he was confused. I remember thinking in my head, ‘here we go.’ Because why would he call me on a Thursday morning? So, that conversation happened. I was shocked. And my wife started crying because she knew.”

“My wife with tears in her eyes, and I feel so bad for her because she was about to come back, and one of the main reasons why she wanted to come back is because I was there,” Malakai Black added.
