Zelina Vega Reportedly Made More Money From Twitch Than Her WWE Contract

WWE announced on Friday that they had released Zelina Vega. The announcement of her release came 10 minutes after Vega tweeted out that she supports unionization.

On the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer reported that Zelina Vega was one of the people within WWE that was making more money on social media and third-party accounts like her twitch, than she was from her WWE contract.

WWE previously gave notice to all contracted talent that they had a timeframe to get rid of their third-party accounts, it was noted that Vega did not get rid of her accounts before the deadline WWE had issued. It has been reported that this is the reason for Vega’s release from the company.

“So, essentially as everyone knows, the talent was given a timeframe to get rid of their Twitch and Cameo accounts. During that timeframe, Zelina Vega didn’t get rid of it and she opened an OnlyFans account. The backstory on this and it’s funny because one person kind of told me when the thing went down that there are a couple of women that are making more money with their social media than they are making with WWE and they are gonna be real interesting and one of those was Zelina Vega. On her Twitch she’s making a lot of money and so it’s like what do you do in that situation and I think she made her choice and they had to fire her and then right before it got out that she was fired she made a tweet about how she supports unionization which she has said before. I mean it’s not like that’s the first time she said that and that did play into some of it and now.”
