Zelina Vega released

WWE has come to terms on the release of Zelina Vega. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors.

Shortly before the release was announced, Vega (Thea Trinidad Budgen) posted on Twitter that she supports unionization. Vega, along with Paige and AJ Styles, was one of the more prominent WWE Superstars impacted by the recent edict about Twitch accounts.

Vega recently launched an OnlyFans account where people can purchase pictures of her wearing cosplay outfits. There is a strict non-nude policy.

Vega signed with WWE in 2017. She was the manager of Andrade (and later Angel Garza) from the beginning until the act was broken up in recent months. She was moved to SmackDown after not being selected in the WWE Draft. She is married to WWE Superstar Aleister Black.
