Zelina Vega Opens Up About Vince McMahon Congratulating Her At Crown Jewel

Zelina Vega has revealed what Vince McMahon told her after she won the Queen’s Crown tournament at WWE Crown Jewel on October 21.

During last week’s Saudi Arabia show, Vega pinned Doudrop in the tournament finals. In an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Vega noted that when speaking with McMahon after the bout, The Chairman told her that she was already the queen when she arrived in WWE.

Opening up about her position in the company, Vega said:

“Vince (McMahon) walked up to me after the match in the back and said, ‘You walked in here queen, and now it’s official.’ I almost lost it. This is finally my time to show out to everyone who I am. I’m not in anyone’s shadow. This is my time to show why I am a star. Queen Zelina, it feels so incredible to say that. I’m bringing it to Spanish, too—La Reina, that’s me. It feels absolutely right to say that. This is me, and it is mine. It’s been a hell of a journey, and I’m looking forward to continuing my story as Queen Zelina. Every time I step into the ring, I feel like I have to prove myself. I take this opportunity in WWE very seriously. This is my time, and it starts now.”

Vega defeated Doudrop with a Code Red, a homage to her cousin, Amazing Red. Queen Vega officially joins Raw tonight, after being drafted to The Red Brand during the WWE Draft.
