Zelina Vega is currently one-half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, as well as recently becoming the inaugural winner of the Queen’s Crown tournament.
Vega in her run as “Queen Zelina” has been on arguably the run of her WWE career, something she seems to agree with. When speaking to Peter Rosenberg recently on his ‘Cheap Heat’ podcast, Zelina Vega had this to say:
“I feel like this is the shot that I’ve been waiting for and this is the thing that I need to go, ‘Okay, you’ve been wanting for something for so long. This is the time to show them that — prove them right. You know, they gave you this opportunity. Prove them right.’ You know, and I always say give me the ball. You know, if I drop it, screw me but if you don’t do it, then you won’t know and I just feel like now more than ever, I have a fire under my ass like I’ve never had before and you know, you kind of have to put things in perspective because yes, some people think it’s just a prop [championships] and I’ve never thought of it that way, why? Because I grew up a wrestling fan and I remember crying when I saw Lita won it and I — you have those emotions tied to it so, when I won the title, I remember seeing this video, I’m like — I saw this video of this girl and she’ll probably like — if she sees this, she’ll probably be like, ‘Oh my God, I can’t believe she’s talking about my video. I hate her so much.’ But, it’s of her literally weeping. [This was when Carmella and I won] the tag titles away from Nikki [A.S.H.] and Rhea [Ripley] because she loved Nikki and Rhea so much that she couldn’t believe that me and Carmella took it from them and we’re prancing around, jumping around the way we were and she was so angry. You just saw it in her face and she was recording herself for some reason and just put it on Twitter and she was just screaming and weeping and screaming, ‘No! I can’t believe that she did this’ and I’m like, ‘Okay, whether that was a good response or a bad response, it was a response. An emotional response that we got from you.’ That’s what this is all about and if I can pull that emotion from you, I’m doing my job.”
