She said, “The past week has been hell. Literal hell. Friday was the worst day of my life, well, since 2001. When you hear about me in the social media world, sometimes misinformation can be spread. It’s important for me to get you guys to know me. I was someone who let people walk all over me. I was very insecure and I didn’t stand up for myself.

“Looking at social media, I expected the absolute worst. I was pleasantly surprised. I thought people were going to look at me like the devil. Let’s just say that the narrative has been spun completely out of control and is completely wrong. When people see the real story that I put out, that’s who I am. I’ve learned to grow as a person. I’ve known to realize my worth and stand up for who I am, and appreciate the things I’ve gotten along the way.H/t Fightful.com

Zelina, in her comments, hinted she had a lot to share with her fans and how tough the past few days had been for her. She also stated that she stood up for herself and left the company.

With Zelina Vega saying she will share more details “very soon,” it will be really interesting to know what were the actual reasons that caused the sudden release of one of professional wrestling’s best managers in recent memory.
