Another one bites the dust.
On Friday evening, WWE confirmed the release of Zelina Vega.
The company took to their official website and announced that they have released Zelina Vega with the following statement being released this afternoon to confirm the news.
Zelina Vega released"WWE has come to terms on the release of Zelina Vega. We wish her all the best in her future endeavors."
Minutes before WWE made it official, Vega tweeted that she supports unionization and many figured she was released because of that comment.
I support unionization.

While it's true that Vega opposes WWE's new edict regarding third party platforms like Twitch, she was released first and then made those very public comments. It is worth noting, however, that ultimately her release from WWE all likely stems from her vocal displeasure at the company's new policy.
Vega has a 90-day non-compete clause, so she will not be able to sign to work for any other pro wrestling promotions until around mid-February.
