Zelina Vega Makes WWE Return – Zelina Vega has just made made her return to WWE this week on Friday Night SmackDown. This is Vega’s first WWE appearance since her release last November.
Vega was announced by Sonya Deville as a competitor for the women’s Money In The Bank ladder match. Vega, playing the heel, cut a promo on the mic about how she will win the MITB briefcase and then cash in to become either the WWE NXT, RAW or SmackDown Women’s Champion. She was interrupted by Liv Morgan, who was still upset about not getting a Money In the Bank spot while Carmella and Vega have.
Morgan ended up having words with Vega, and then slapped her. Morgan begged for a match and Deville granted it. The fairly short match ended after the referee caught Vega trying to roll Morgan up with a handful of tights. Morgan took advantage of the distraction and then used a handful of tights to roll Vega up for the pin. Vega seethed at the loss and tried to go after Morgan but the referee stopped her.
Vega had been released in late 2020 following issues with the company over their third party edict. It was recently revealed that the company was bringing her back, a few weeks before her husband, Aleister Black, was released on June 2 as a part of budget cuts. Vega has focused on acting and video game streaming since leaving WWE, and has not worked with any other wrestling promotions. She was rumored to be headed to AEW at one point, but nothing ever came of those rumors.
