Zelina Vega was a huge fan favorite at this past Saturday night’s WWE Backlash 2023 pay-per-view event.
During a recent interview with Uproxx, the Latino World Order member commented on what the match meant to her, the incredible fan response she received, and more.
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
On what the moment meant to her: “I take that with such pride because it’s representation, not just for Latinos, but for the women as well to have somebody to look up to, somebody that relates to us in so many different ways. It’s cool to have those moments where you have people saying you’re an inspiration because I just want to be what Rey Mysterio was for me growing up.”
On the fan response: “Puerto Ricans are so passionate, especially for their own. The response has been massive. The Rock always said, (WWE has) the most electrifying fans in sports entertainment, but I never really understood what he meant fully until I experienced it while I was in the ring and felt that electricity from the fans. This is what he meant.”
