Zelina Vega reveals that Vince McMahon issued an apology to her

During an interview with TalkSport.com, Zelina Vega talked about her match being cut from the September 11th 2021 edition of WWE Smackdown. Zelina’s father was one of the victims of 9/11 and she noted that Vince McMahon personally apologized to her over the phone…

“A lot of people were really upset, but I felt like a lot of the anger was misguided. I was disappointed, but I also knew it wasn’t a personal thing. If you knew, and obviously a lot of the fans don’t know that the show goes in an order, the way that it went timewise, it got too close and they had to cut it.” When it got cut, Vince called me and apologized because he wanted to make sure that I knew ‘listen, this wasn’t done to you personally or anything, it was literally just this [the time], I had to make that call and I’m so sorry.’ And people don’t know that side either.”

When Zelina Vega departed WWE in November 2020, it was hard to imagine a year later she’d return to the company and become their inaugural Queen’s Crown winner. But that’s exactly what the New York native did and now she heads into Survivor Series this weekend with arguably the biggest momentum of her entire career.
