Update on Zelina Vega being released from WWE Submitted by Aaron T-Bar Rift on 11/13/2020 at 08:30 PM
Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com is reporting the following about Zelina Vega's release from WWE:
"Zelina Vega was fallout from last month's edict that talents drop their relationships with third party entities such as Twitch, Cameo, etc. in favor of World Wrestling Entertainment spearheading those relationships and fielding talents out as part of their contractual duties."
Johnson added that Vega was informed about her release in the late afternoon and there is a standard 90-day non-compete clause. Vega's tweet about supporting unionization was not the reason for her release but she was reportedly "extremely vocal" about wanting to keep her Twitch account.
According to Fightful.com, talent in both WWE and AEW were said to be surprised about the release. Alex McCarthy of TalkSport.com noted the following:
Many WWE superstars have said to me on and off the record what a talent Zelina Vega is. Many consider her one of the very best talkers in the company, male and female.
Literally everyone else should be scrambling to pick her up.
