Zelina Vega isn’t happy her return to WWE was ruined online
In the latest episode of the Out of Character podcast with Ryan Satin, Zelina Vega opened up about her relationship with Triple H and the help he has given her over the years. Vega mentioned a nickname that she and her husband, Malakai Black, used to call her, and explained what it looked like when she revealed that she was marrying Black and not Andrade.
“As a manager, as a person,” Zelina said. “We call him ‘Papa H’ because he’s been there for everything, every part of our career, even on the master list. Whenever we had a question, professionally or personally, he was always there for us. He always gave me that confidence that I needed, that extra push that I needed. He would say things like, ‘There’s no one like you right now, not even on the main roster. . You can do it.’ Little things I needed, and it helped me take it to the next level.
“Even when I said, ‘Hey, uh, I’m getting married.’ He said to me, ‘Oh, okay, so you and Andrade are getting married?’ No, me and Aleister. He said to me: ‘What, wait? You totally blew me away with this. I didn’t even think you were together! I was like, ‘Yeah, we’ve been hiding it for a really long time.’ He was so happy, and he was like, ‘My babies are getting married but not the babies that I … I’m so happy for you guys.’ It was really cool, it’s Papa H.
Zelina Vega returned to WWE in July as a surprise participant in the 2021 Women’s Money in the Bank. The new Women’s King of the Ring explained that her return hadn’t come as a surprise and why she didn’t. was not happy to hear her surprise comeback be ruined.
“What made it funny was around the time it came out, I wasn’t really back yet,” Vega said. “It wasn’t really a thing yet, and I know they were filming something for my husband, so that’s why I was there initially. It was funny because I was like, this isn’t even 100% yet, you all talk like that but you don’t know the details, but I can’t tell you the details, so shut up, stop.
“When it’s meant to be, it’s meant to be, if it’s meant to be. Why take that away from the fans? These are my biggest issues with stuff like that is like, why spoil it and take time away from the fans who are really going to have a really cool time instead of, ‘I read on the internet that she was coming back. anyway, so whatever, it doesn’t even matter. Yeah, I know it’s not huge when you already know it.
