WWE Queen’s Crown tournament winner Zelina Vega recently opened up about how the wrestler-turned-actor The Rock motivated her when she was ready to give up on pro-wrestling. John Laurinaitis Angry Firing Phone Call Revealed
Zelina Vega reveals the conversation with The Rock
Vega was on the latest episode of “Out of Character” with Ryan Satin. The inaugural winner of the Queen’s Crown tournament reminisced the hard times in her career when she almost gave up on her dreams of becoming a WWE star.
Vega recalled a conversation with the Rock back in 2017 after she was once again rejected by the WWE. She revealed that The Great One had called her a few days later and offered her the role of AJ Lee in “Fighting with my Family” – a movie based on the early days of former WWE star Paige.
Here is what Vega told about her discussion with The Rock:
“It was 2017 and I remember texting Dwayne and telling him, ‘Dude, I’m about to give up on literally everything wrestling. I don’t want anything to do with wrestling anymore. This is the umpteenth time WWE has said no to me. I’m over this. I don’t want to do this anymore.’ He said just give me a few days. I have something that I’m working on.
Then Dwayne calls me and goes, ‘Hey, I’ve got this opportunity for you.’ He told me that Paige has this documentary and he’s going into detail about her family and this and that. He asked: ‘Do you remember when she came back and beat AJ for the title? I want you to be my Divas Champion and you don’t even have to audition for the part. I know you can do it.’ I was like, what!” Zelina said.
