WrestleVotes is now reporting that there is more to the release of Zelina Vega. They revealed that frustrations were high from both sides. Although not linked directly, they also revealed Aleister Black asked for a move back to NXT, which was also denied. They tweeted:

It seems like WWE and Zelina Vega had a hot dispute. It is well-known that several Superstars within the company are unhappy about the edict.

Zelina Vega was one among the many who showed their dissent towards shutting down Twitch, which ultimately lead to her shocking release. She posted a tweet supporting unionization just a couple hours before Friday Night SmackDown hinting at the real reason for her release.

If there are more releases to come, we must wait and see, but we can surely say that such a firm stance on third-party entities portrays WWE being hell-bent on ensuring their talent doesn’t make any extra money.

What Coming Next For Zelina Vega?

Before making her debut for WWE, Zelina Vega appeared for various promotions such as TNA, Global Force Wrestling, ROH, and Shine Wrestling.

Her pairing with Andrade seemed nothing short of perfect. Her mic skills coupled with Andrade’s work was a genuine delight. No matter where Zelina Vega ends up, it is only going to add more star power to the promotion she joins.

WWE’s 90-day no compete clause will keep Zelina from making a televised appearance for any wrestling promotion until February 2021, but you can still catch her on Twitch!
