Zelina Vega Buried On SmackDown? – As noted earlier, Toni Storm won her debut match on this week’s WWE SmackDown but something that was noticed by fans was that Zelina Vega was treated like an afterthought.
It’s possible that there are plans for her later down the road, but this week she didn’t even get an entrance. The spotlight was all around on Toni Storm’s debut, they announced Zelina’s name while she was already in the ring after Storm made her way to the ring. Vega lost quickly in less than 2 minutes.
Fans tweets to her saying that WWE has been burying her since she returned to the company. Vega hasn’t won a match since her return earlier this month. Vega addressed the tweets while keeping kayfabe. She said the following:
“1. That belt distracted the hell out of me.. seriously what was that about?!
2. Guess who didn’t lose today? My bank account.
Vega returned to SmackDown on July 2nd but signed her deal several weeks prior to her husband signing with AEW. Whether or not people in WWE are mad at her remains to be seen but it was clear that the main focus was on Storm and not Vega.
