WWE surprisingly brought Zelina Vega back and she was featured on this week’s episode of SmackDown.
Back in 2020, Vega was released by the company due to a breach of contract. This came after her activity on OnlyFans, and it was considered the breach of contract as WWE had brought a new rule that didn’t allow its superstars to have handles on third-party platforms.

Vince McMahon was reportedly unhappy with Vega opening an OnlyFans account at the time and thereby she was let go.
WWE had apologized to Zelina Vega

They had pushed for conversations between the two sides to continue, and the WWE officials even apologized to the superstar before making her an offer to return.
“We are told that even after Vega was released, there were segments of the company who felt she should have been retained and not released.We are told those segments of the company pushed for conversations between the two sides to continue. They eventually did and we are told that after a long period of back and forth conversations, WWE execs apologized to Vega and made her an offer to return. Eventually, she decided to go through that open door and signed back with the company.”
