Zelina Vega along with her stablemates has been a constant presence on Monday Night RAW throughout the pandemic era. It seems Vega’s efforts have borne fruit as she is currently seen in a good light by the higher-ups in WWE.
During this week’s episode of D-Von Dudley’s streaming discussion show, Table Talk, Vega revealed that Vince McMahon is a huge fan of her currently. Here is what she said:
“Before quarantine happened, Vince would always say, ‘You’re one of my favorites. You’re one of the reasons I watch Raw. I love your character.’ It was such an honor to hear him say that. One thing he would say to me was, ‘You remind me of Stephanie [McMahon]. She was always working out there. You’re a cutaway machine, I love that about you.’ I was legit ready to cry. I love Steph, she’s a huge inspiration to me and this character.“
Vega also revealed that Paul Heyman was a staunch supporter of her when he was the Executive Director of Monday Night RAW. Despite all the immense support from the higher-ups, she admits she would not have been in this position had it not been for the “prevailing circumstances.” She also seemingly confirms a rumor.
“It’s wild to think that if this quarantine didn’t happen, I wonder where I’d be. I wonder if I’d be getting a Raw Women’s Title shot against Asuka.”
