Zelina Vega shockingly returned to WWE last week

Following her shock return to WWE on Friday Night SmackDown last week, some more information has emerged regarding Zelina Vega being brought back to the company.

Fightful Select is reporting that talks between WWE and Zelina Vega "started well before" Vega was filmed at the WWE Performance Center in May, with the report even suggesting that WWE "made an effort" to keep in contact with Zelina following her release.

The report from Sean Ross Sapp goes on to say that many "influential names" within WWE pushed for the company to bring Vega back following her shock firing in November of last year. 

Sapp goes on to say that it's unclear whether or not being able to stream on Twitch, something that Vega has clearly been passionate about for a while, has been negotiated into her deal to return to WWE.
