WWE reportedly apologized to Zelina Vega before rehiring her. Vega made her WWE return on Friday Night SmackDown this week.
There has long been speculation that Zelina Vega was on the cusp of a potential return to the WWE. The comeback finally took place this Friday Night on SmackDown when Sonya Deville announced her as part of the Women’s Money in the Bank match without having to qualify.
This was her first WWE appearance since being released back in November 13, 2020. She had been let go due to her decision to remain active on OnlyFans despite the company’s edict regarding third party apps. According to PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, “segments of the company” felt that Vega should not have been released last year.
In fact, WWE officials even apologized to the superstar before making her an offer to return!
WWE reportedly apologized to Zelina Vega before rehiring her
“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.”
“There are differing accounts as to when that happened. One source told me May. Another told me it was much sooner than that but all sides opted to keep it quiet so they could strategize a return.
“Why they waited until now, only WWE could answer but they also signed Eva Marie and had her sitting around for nine months. Vega was backstage last week but had not been at any TVs beyond that in recent months.”
