Word around WWE is that Zelina Vega has really impressed management as of late.
Sources tell Inside the Ropes that WWE regards her manager role on TV as ‘really special’ and that’s why they always find something for her.
It’s also said she’s regarded as “one of the best talkers in the entire company” – whatever the gender – and that Vince McMahon is a fan of her.
Prior to her recent run against Asuka, Vega had limited in-ring action on the main roster.
In fact, the 29-year-old has only had five singles matches on TV since debuting on the main roster back in April 2018.
However, WWE are said to have been very impressed with her recent in-ring work, particularly against Asuka.
Vega is much more polished than many fans realise. She debuted in TNA back in 2011 as Rosita where she became a Knockouts Tag Team champion.
Many feel Vega’s excellent mic skills have prevented her from spending more time in the ring. Her chemistry with Andrade was obvious and given he could not speak great English – although he has been working very hard to learn English for the past couple of years – it was felt she was important to have by his side as a manager.
Angel Garza has been managed by Vega too, but it’s been previously reported that McMahon is a big fan of the third-generation wrestler and believes his charisma could stand on his own.
Now may finally be the time for Zelina Vega to concentrate on her own in-ring career and judging by the praise she’s receiving backstage, she seems well positioned to make an impact.
It’s worth noting that many superstars have praised her work on the microphone, too, and that has also trickled back to management.
