• “Tommy and Dwayne believed in me when nobody else in the world did” – Zelina Vega
After getting released from WWE, Zelina Vega talked about her journey in WWE and thanked some people on Twitch.
Here’s what Zelina said:
“I don’t know where to start. I know a lot of the WWE Universe is here with me tonight and I’m incredibly grateful. I wouldn’t have enjoyed my success without you, the WWE, and mostly importantly people who believed in me from the start, like Tommy Dreamer, The Rock, Triple H, and Stephanie McMahon.
Tommy and Dwayne [Johnson] believed in me when nobody else in the world did. They fought for me when nobody else would. I had gotten so many no’s in my life up until that point.
All I ever wanted since I was a 4 year old girl was to be a WWE superstar. And not just for me but my dad too. So, I’m grateful to WWE and NXT for making this dream a reality. I’m not mad at anyone, I’m only thankful.
If not for NXT, I would have never met my husband and some incredible people along the way. I’m not retiring from wrestling.
Right now, I’m sad and heartbroken, and don’t know what the future holds. But I know I will be here [on Twitch] with you guys, and I’m truly grateful for that too.”
