Backstage Reactions To Vince McMahon Not Meeting With Zelina After Firing

Zelina is gone from WWE and didn't get an exit meeting on her way out.

Fightful spent the last few weeks polling wrestlers on their thoughts on the matter after Zelina was let go from WWE in November due to her participation in third party affiliates.

Fightful Select reported:

Fightful spoke to several wrestlers in the weeks following Zelina's release about the fact that she wasn't granted an “exit” meeting with Vince McMahon. Most everyone that we heard from were not surprised by the fact this happened, and we got stories from virtually everyone we asked about planned meetings being delayed weeks, and having to wait by his office for an hour at a time to get face time with him. One wrestler noted that it didn't instill a lot of confidence in them that Zelina had an actual concern over a hot button issue and wasn't heard out, and was promptly fired. A Raw wrestler mentioned that the shift over the last nine months had been evident, with WWE not letting disgruntled wrestlers go, to releasing talent with upside, to firing people with grievances.

Zelina is free to sign with another wrestling company in February.
