“You want her on your roster” – Booker T claims WWE made a mistake by releasing this female star


WWE Hall of Famer Booker T feels WWE made a blunder in releasing Zelina Vega

Former WWE Heavyweight Champion Booker T has admitted that he feels that the company made a big mistake after releasing SmackDown star Zelina Vega.

Vega was released by WWE after failing to abide to their policy regarding an OnlyFans account and possibly unionizing. The account on the third-party site was against the company’s rules which she did not follow.

However, T believed that WWE should never had released Vega and said on his “Hall of Fame” podcast: (h/t Rajah. com)

“For me, having someone back like Zelina Vega, somebody who knows how to go out there and make your bells ring, knowing how to make you feel a certain way when you see her walk out to the ring, I think there again I don’t she ever should’ve gotten her notice or anything like that. I know that business is business. But someone like Zelina Vega, you want her on your roster.”

“You want her in that locker room with all the ladies because more importantly, when there’s not a whole of them that we’re highlighting, we know we can highlight Zelina Vega, I’m thinking about, yeah, I need her on my team. She looks great, and I’m glad she’s back”

Vega made her long awaited return in a surprise appearance on this week’s WWE SmackDown after a lengthy absence from the company.

What’s in store for Zelina Vega?

Vega returned to face Liv Morgan on WWE SmackDown. Sonya Deville promised Morgan a shot at the Money in the Bank, if she managed to get the better of the returning star. It is also announced that Vega will be one of the participants of the Money in the Bank ladder match.

Despite the loss on SmackDown, Vega’s return is well received by the WWE Universe. She comes as a breath of fresh air to the roster. The women’s roster on SmackDown has come under the spotlight many times. It will be interesting to see where Vega’s plans are in the next few months after her return.
