Zelina Vega shocked the WWE audience when she returned to SmackDown this past Friday. Vega was released from the company in November and reports in May started to swirl noting that she would be making her return. Up until Friday that was pure speculation.
WWE Authority Sonya Deville announced Vega’s returning by adding her into the upcoming Money in the Bank Ladder Match. Vega was on this weekend’s Talking Smack to discuss her return and involvement in the match and which champion she may target if she wins the briefcase. She was also in action on Friday in a losing effort against Liv Morgan who is trying to prove she deserves her own spot in the MITB match.
“I think I have some unfinished business with Bianca [Belair]. If she’s even going to remain champion, although, I’m not really fond of Bayley either. Whoever it’s going to be, that’s who I have my eyes on right now.”
In 2020, Vega and Belair had a rivalry in which Belair came out with victories on numerous occasions. The story writes itself regardless if Vega wins the briefcase or not with her being a potential future opponent for the SmackDown Women’s Champion. Vega also included NXT in the discussion of possible champions to cash in on if she were to win the contract.
She joins Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Naomi, Nikki Cross, and Carmella so far for this upcoming match. Two more names from SmackDown are still to be announced. Belair is set to defend her title against Bayley at Money in the Bank in an “I Quit Match.”
