However, Tony Khan definitely seems interested in signing the former Zelina Vega, as he stated the following quote during a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio.
“I haven’t. Isn’t she on a 90-day non-compete? I think she was on a non-compete last time I checked so I’ve been waiting for that. I don’t talk to people when they have a non-compete. If it expired, it must have just expired. I don’t know the exact details on that but I’ve been waiting on the non-compete to expire to even think about it.
Then we got in the Women’s Eliminator so I have to check the math and see if she’s expired but I’m not sure. We’ve been pretty busy with this tournament. When we get through this tournament and through this PPV…I’d be interested to see where she’s at.”
