Zelina Vega reveals what actually caused her to miss several months of WWE action in 2022

In May of 2022, it was reported that Zelina was out of action due to an in-ring injury that required surgery and she returned to television in October with Legado Del Fantasma.

During an appearance on the Anna Faris Is Unqualified podcast, Zelina revealed what actually caused her to miss several months of WWE action…

“Yeah (I was injured in the ring)… And honestly, it never happens off some really cool move or some crazy flip I did outside the ring. It’s always the littlest thing that will happen and that’s how you get injured but, knock on wood, I actually hadn’t had any serious injuries until that point and it wasn’t even that bad, it’s just silly. But, one of my best friends and I were in a match and she had given me this move called a Northern Lights Suplex where basically, she kind of flips me over her backwards and her shoulder went into my chest and I ruptured an implant. But, me of course looking on the bright side, I was like, well, they are ten years old anyway and I kind of wanted them bigger anyway so, it ended up working out.” (quote courtesy of PostWrestling.com)
