SmackDown Star Admits To Being ‘Surprised’ By WWE Return Plans WWE

SmackDown star Zelina Vega has opened up about an issue that kept her out of the ring, explaining how it changed WWE plans for her.

Vega notably returned to WWE TV in October 2022 as part of the Legado Del Fantasma faction. The WWE star had previously suffered a ruptured implant that kept her out of action.

Discussing the incident, Vega noted the following on the Out of Character podcast:

“(I had) a ruptured implant from Rhea. But you know what, again, I’ve said this before like in a joking way, but it actually worked out for the better.

“Because things happened and it sucked at first and now I’m like, ‘Oh, we’re good. Now. They’re better than ever,’ and everyone’s happy. My husband’s happy, everyone’s happy. So yeah, it worked out.

Noting that she only knew about plans for her to join Legado Del Fantasma the day before she first appeared alongside Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro, sha said:

“I mean, I was surprised if I’m being honest. It was a surprise for me because it wasn’t exactly the plan. It only became the plan literally the day before.

“For me, I was like, ‘Okay, this is like a whole new challenge.’ Because again I had just been with Andrade forever, that’s what people had known me for.

“Then obviously there was that time with (Angel) Garza and then people forget about the fact that I had Theory on our team as well.

“But it was just completely different because now it’s not just pushing for one person, It’s pushing for a team. Again, I like to say this because people will get a little confused.

“I’m not just a manager or just a wrestler. I’m probably the only one who wears every single hat that there is to wear in WWE. So I’m not a manager, managing wrestlers.

“We’re a group of wrestlers that are all pushing to be the best. So of course for me, I’d love to see all of us drenched in gold because that’s the vision, that’s the goal right there.”

Zelina Vega also addressed Elektra Lopez’ absence from the group, which you can read more about right here.
