Zeda talks working in OWE, their hectic schedule and much more!
Zeda was one of four female wrestlers that was recruited to the WWE Performance Center in January of 2017. Zeda made a few appearances on NXT TV and competed in the inaugural Mae Young Classic tournament. After one full year in WWE, in June of 2018 it was announced by the sports-entertainment company that Zeda had been released from her contract.
Zeda is now working the independent scene and competing for number of promotions such as 'Championship Wrestling Entertainment', 'I Believe In Wrestling' and 'Oriential Wrestling Entertainment' who recently partnered with All Elite Wrestling. Zeda spoke with the South China Morning Post and shared that once the news of her release was made public, promoters and bookers instantly reached out to her and she added that the independents have treated her well thus far.
"As soon as people heard of my release, a bunch of promotions hit me up and then I just got referred by promoters to other promoters, referred by wrestlers and coaches,” she says.“There’s been a lot of traveling and wrestling. The indies have treated me well so far. I have been very lucky.”
As mentioned in this article, Zeda competes for OWE which is based in Shanghai and she stated that the OWE schedule is hectic but she enjoys wrestling in China.
“The trip has been amazing but hectic,” says Zhang. “It’s been nonstop back-to-back but very welcoming people, and it’s nice to finally meet my fans from the other side of the world. Since my ethnic background is Chinese, I felt it would be good to wrestle in China and also visit Asia since I have fans here and want to be able to be there for all of them and get a chance to meet them. It is the least I can do for them for following and supporting me all the way across the world.” She said.
