Zelina Vega (Thea Trinidad) is reportedly headed back to WWE.
Vega was at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando on Thursday of this week, according to Fightful Select. Word is that Vega was at the Performance Center for some sort of filming with the company.
It was revealed that Vega was filmed walking into the Performance Center with Simone Johnson, the daughter of former WWE Champion The Rock. There’s no word on if this was some sort of supplemental footage being filmed or if there’s a plan for Vega and Johnson. Social media posts from earlier this year indicate that Vega and Johnson are friends, and they have posed together for Aleister Black’s Blxck Mass clothing company.
WWE announced back in February 2020 that Simone began training at the Performance Center. It was then announced in May that she had signed a contract. Simone still has not made her WWE NXT debut and it’s been reported that she likely won’t for some time as she trains and learns the sport.
Regarding Vega, Wrestling Inc. recently learned that her WWE return has been planned for a while now, before WrestleMania 37.
There’s no word yet on when Vega will be back, but we will keep you updated on her status. WWE recently started airing vignettes for the return of Vega’s husband, Aleister Black.
Vega was released from her WWE contract back on November 13 after issues with the company related to their edict on third party activity with sites such as Twitch. Her 90-day non-compete clause expired in mid-February, but, she has focused on acting and video game streaming since leaving WWE, and has not worked with any other wrestling promotions.
