As the LWO faction recently imploded on SmackDown, one member, Zelina Vega, is getting applauded by WWE backstage officials for her performance.
Zelina Vega Given Praise
During the November 4th WWE Crown Jewel event, Rey Mysterio lost his United States Championship to Logan Paul, who scored the win and the title. Still, this is all due to an unfortunate series of events.
Santos Escobar, who was part of the stable, left brass knuckles on the ring apron, and Logan Paul used them to snag the victory. On the following SmackDown, Carlito was quite suspicious of Escobar, believing he did this on purpose, and left the weapon closer to Logan.

Escobar denied it. Still, as SmackDown progressed, he ended up attacking Rey Mysterio.
In addition, it states Santos’s heel turn is not related to Mysterio’s injury. That was said to be “part of the plan” for a while now.
So, what does this all have to do with the female star in the group? Well, she got highly emotional after Escobar’s attack on Rey.
Crying, she and Santos had dialogue, as she also stood by Rey’s side in the aftermath of the beatdown. According to PWInsider, there are many people within the company who are praising her for her emotional performance during Rey’s attack and Escobar’s heel turn.
Vega, along with Rey and Escobar formed the stable earlier this year. It’s important to note that the WWE superstar does have some prior acting experience.
She participated in the 2012 film Dorothy and the Witches of Oz. Plus, in 2019, she played AJ Lee in the biopic about Saraya/Paige called Fighting With My Family.
Of course, Zelina Vega was under a WWE contract at that time. Still, the movie was produced by “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson, someone who she has said inspired her to act.
