WWE Released Zelina Vega For Breaching Her Contract

New details have emerged regarding WWE releasing Zelina Vega. 

WWE confirmed to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated that Vega was released by the company due to a breach of contract.

According to Barrasso, Vega "challenged" WWE by opening an OnlyFans account and having a subscription fee of $30. Her account featured exclusive videos and photos of “cosplays, lingerie, swimsuits and more." 

Vega was also an active Twitch streamer and was reportedly noncompliant with WWE's new policy that has talent hand over third-party accounts. Talent can potentially remain on Twitch but will have to do so under the WWE banner, thus limiting their potential income. 

Vega was reportedly part of the group that met with Vince McMahon to discuss WWE's new policy regarding Twitch, though their plea was unsuccessful. 

Moments before her release was made official, Vega tweeted that she supported unionization. Her tweet caught the eye of SAG-AFTRA President Gabrielle Carteris, who has since said that SAG wants to protect wrestlers and that they will engage with wrestlers to figure out ways to help them moving forward.

Vega reportedly has a 90-day non-compete clause as part of her release.

In a Twitch stream following her release, she said has no ill will towards the company and thanked them for allowing her to achieve her dreams. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
