Zelina Vega can't help but gush when talking about her client Andrade "Cien" Almas.
Appearing on Busted Open Radio, Vega heaped praise on the former NXT World Champion, signifying that the business relationship goes both ways.
“He has become such a part of me. I remember when I was first going to have my match with Lana, I was like, ‘Wait my entrance, it’s alone — without him? What do you mean?’ We ended up doing it together but he’s become such a part of me."
Vega joined Almas on-screen on June 9, 2017. In NXT, she never wrestled on television or at live events until Candice Lerae became involved in the feud between Almas and Johnny Gargano. Prior to joining NXT to become Almas' business manager, Vega wrestled under the name Rosita in Impact Wrestling.
After spending so much time away from the ring, Vega credited Almas for making her a better wrestler.
"He’s helped me in the ring. He’s helped me with — we talked about psychology, and picking your spots and making things make sense. Especially for my size, I thought at some points, ‘Well, I can’t do any power moves, how can I do this?’ He instantly comes up with, ‘okay let’s try this, let’s use this to your advantage. Let’s not look at it as a disadvantage. Let’s look at it as an advantage and how can we use it against people. They’re gonna look at you and think less, let’s use that against them.”
