As noted earlier, Zelina Vega has been let go by WWE and it looked like WWE’s third-party edict regarding sites like Twitch and Cameo may have been a factor.
Dave Meltzer is reporting that the reason why Vega was let go is that she supports unionization.
It doesn’t look like Vince McMahon is willing to have a conversation with his talent. Meltzer tweeted, “Zelina Vega let go for supporting unionization tells me Vince wants to pick a very interesting fight. We’ll see if he gets his wish.”
Paige, who has also been outspoken about the third-party edict, sent out the following tweet after the news that Vega was fired: “This sucks..”
It will be interesting to see if anyone speaks out or if Vega’s firing cools down any talk of unionization among the talent. Quite frankly, whether intended or not, Vega’s firing is likely to send a message to at least some of the talent.
As far as Vega goes, she is very talented and AEW should definitely reach out to her. She may not need to work in wrestling again because of her lucrative Twitch channel and non-nude OnlyFans account.
This sucks.. 😔 https://t.co/gSSrVqCTow
