It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter this week that Zelina Vega was denied a meeting with Vince McMahon after being fired by WWE, before then being escorted from the Amway Center.
Fightful Select is now reporting that while Vega wasn’t able to meet with Vince McMahon, this isn’t all that uncommon during a television day. The site did note that they hadn’t heard about Vega being escorted from the building:
Though we’ve not heard that Zelina Vega was escorted from the arena following her firing, we were told that she was denied an opportunity to speak with Vince McMahon. One of the stories Fightful heard about from a wrestler was that Zelina had asked to speak to Vince McMahon to tell him goodbye, and the offer to do so was declined.
A wrestler on the Raw side of things did not sound surprised by the situation, noting that it’s hard enough to get a meeting with Vince McMahon when you’re employed by the company, much less when you’ve just been fired. One Smackdown performer noted that they waited weeks even after their call-up to talk to Vince McMahon, and mentioned that hadn’t really changed in the pandemic era.
We’re told several wrestlers shared personal words of encouragement to Zelina following the move.
