Zelina Vega Admits She’s Nervous For SmackDown Women’s Title Match At WWE Backlash



WWE Superstar Zelina Vega will be facing off against Rhea Ripley for the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the upcoming WWE Backlash 2023 pay-per-view event, which takes place on May 6th in Puerto Rico.

During a recent appearance on WWE’s ‘The Bump,’ Vega admitted that she’s a bit nervous for the bout and wants to deliver in front of her family and friends.

On competing in Puerto Rico: “I try to formulate my words when it comes to that question because there’s no good combination of words that could describe how I feel. I’m representing for my family, I’m representing for everyone that’s rooting for me in Puerto Rico, my family that didn’t get to see me wrestle yet in Puerto Rico, and girls like me. I feel like it’s a lot of pressure, but I’m so happy to carry that, and I’m so happy to be able to say that I’m walking into Puerto Rico of all places [for this match.] It is against Rhea bloody Ripley. I understand what comes with that, and it’s no easy thing to defeat her. However, the last match that I did have as a singles, I did beat her in 45 seconds, so there is that. I’m feeling my good. I feel like there’s a lot of pressure, but I’m ready for it.”

On being excited for the show: “It’s been a while since I’ve been back there. This is actually my first time getting to perform in Puerto Rico, so there’s a lot of firsts that come with it. I’m even shaking a little bit thinking about it. I’m nervous, but the excitement, it’s completely taken over me. I don’t think I’ve ever shown this kind of vulnerability as far as how much this means to me and how nervous I actually am for this. It’s a good nervous, but it’s also, like I said, I feel like I’m bringing everybody with me, and that’s a crazy thing.”
