Zelina Vega released from the WWE after tweeting in support of Unionization. The WWE and their talent have been at loggerheads regarding third party apps in recent months.
The WWE announced the release of Zelina Vega from their promotion earlier tonight. The announcement has come as a surprise to many considering she was featured in yesterday’s tribute to the Undertaker photoshoots where she was seen cosplaying the deadman.
Interestingly, Vega voiced her support for a Wrestling Union before the WWE announced her departure. It is likelier that Vega was aware of her firing and tweeted right before the announcement. Regardless, it is probably an indicator of what the bone of contention was between both the parties.

At the moment, this is all but speculation. However, Vega along with Paige have been very vocal in their desire for a Union in wrestling, lending credibility to this being the reason.

Dave Meltzer believes that Vince McMahon has taken a very interesting fight on his hands with this firing.
Zelina Vega let go for supporting unionization tells me Vince wants to pick a very interesting fight. We’ll see if he gets his wish.

It will be interesting to see if this becomes a forgotten chapter or the beginning of a change in the world of pro-wrestling.
