Zelina Vega to make WWE main roster in-ring debut on SmackDown


Zelina Vega is set to make her WWE main roster in-ring debut this week.

After Vega and Lana went back and forth on Twitter and Lana challenged Vega to a match, WWE had Paige make it official for tomorrow's episode of SmackDown: "Well. @Zelina_VegaWWE and @LanaWWE have certainly been ... ahem... vocal about their feelings this weekend. SO let’s take this off the internet and bring it into the ring. I am making it official. Zelina vs. Lana TOMORROW NIGHT on #SDLive"

Vega slapped Lana and fought with her during Andrade "Cien" Almas and Rusev's match on last week's SmackDown, with the storyline being that their fight and Aiden English trying to break it up caused Rusev to lose.

Vega was called up with Almas as part of April's roster shakeup. She wrestled once on NXT television before coming to the main roster, losing to Candice LeRae. She also teamed with Almas against LeRae & Johnny Gargano in several house show matches in NXT.

Vega wrestled under her real name (Thea Trinidad) and as Rosita, including for TNA/Impact Wrestling, before signing with WWE.

Cesaro & Sheamus vs. The Usos in a tag team tournament match is also scheduled for tomorrow's SmackDown, with the winners advancing to face The New Day in the finals next week. The team that wins the tournament will challenge for The Bludgeon Brothers' SmackDown Tag Team titles at SummerSlam.
