As reported earlier, a tag team match was pulled from last night’s SmackDown at MSG due to time constraints.
The match was Liv Morgan and Toni Storm vs. Carmella and Zelina Vega.
WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took to social media to comment how it hurts him that a Zelina Vega match was cut on the eve of 9/11. Her father, Michael Trinidad, passed away in the 9/11 attacks 20 years ago.
“It’s weird because any time I have ever performed at Madison Square Garden, I looked for the spot that we would usually go to,” Trinidad said. “I don’t know how my dad was able to get as many tickets as he did, but my brother and I were able to scout out where we’d sit. [Tonight] is going to be one of those moments where I’ll have to take it in for a second because through all of the noise and everything going on, I owe it to myself to take it all in.”
Earlier this week, Mick Foley posted a video criticizing WWE for no longer being a place to be for upcoming talent. His comments can be seen here.
Below is his tweet and photos of Zelina Vega’s custom ring gear that was inspired by Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto.
That hurts ME – I can only imagine how Thea felt. Stay strong, my friend. https://t.co/CYZWWoqRAP
