Booker T: WWE Know How They Can Highlight Zelina Vega
Vega returned on SmackDown last week
Booker T believes Zelina Vega's return to WWE SmackDown is a huge boost for a women's roster that hasn't been highlighted too often.
Vega returned to WWE on Friday Night SmackDown last week and was immediately inserted into the Women's Money In The Bank Ladder Match on Sunday 18 July.
The former manger of Andrade was released by WWE at the end of last year amid disagreements around her use of third-party platforms, and WWE Hall Of Famer Booker T is thrilled to see her back with the promotion.
Speaking during the latest edition of his Hall Of Fame podcast, Booker T said: "For me, having someone back like Zelina Vega, somebody who knows how to go out there and make your bells ring, knowing how to make you feel a certain way when you see her walk out to the ring... I don’t she ever should’ve gotten her notice or anything like that.
"I know that business is business. But someone like Zelina Vega, you want her on your roster. You want her in that locker room with all the ladies because more importantly, when there’s not a whole of them that we’re highlighting, we know we can highlight Zelina Vega, and we can get some numbers down, no doubt!
"I’ve seen the Instagram photos! OK? Because she’s always posting. Just that alone, for me, c’mon — that’s what I’m getting at here! I’m thinking about, yeah, I need her on my team. She looks great, and I’m glad she’s back."
