I Support Zelina Vega: The WWE release Saga

On November 13th Zelina Vega made a tweet stating that she supported unionisation for professional wrestling, and 10 minutes later WWE tweeted that she had been released. The controversy surrounding her release sparked intense outrage online from fans, union leaders and politicians. 

Gabrielle Carteris, the president of the SAG-AFTRA union reached out to Vega, with former Democratic Presidential Candidate Andrew Yang also chiming in when tweeted about the release. 

Dave Meltzer then reported that Vega was in fact made aware of her release prior to her unionisation tweet and that WWE had made the news public only after her comment. Meltzer then clarified that the reason Vega was released was because she failed to comply with the third party edict introduced by WWE last month. 

Vega was quite vocal about keeping her twitch account, and even started an OnlyFans account (non-nude) recently, which didn’t sit well with the company. It turns out that Vega was making more money through social media than with her WWE contract. Ultimately, she made the choice to stick with online platforms like her twitch channel as her earning potential was higher, which then forced WWE’s hand. 

It’s also worth noting while unrelated that Aleister Black, Vega’s husband, has also shown frustration with the company as he requested a move back to NXT which was denied. Black has been absent as of late and with this news his status now appears uncertain.
