Zelina Vega was the guest on this week’s Wrestling With Freddie podcast, and she revealed why WWE paired her with Legado Del Fantasma, now the LWO.

After a seven-month hiatus, Vega returned on the October 7, 2022, episode of WWE SmackDown, aligning herself with Legado Del Fantasma and attacking Hit Row.


You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On how she felt Santos Escobar didn’t need her as a manager when she joined the group: “I said the same thing. I was like, ‘He doesn’t need me, though.’ He’s a great wrestler and a great promo. Why does he need me? The way it was explained to me was, ‘the group is new to the main roster, you’re very known by the SmackDown audience, by putting him with you, people are like, what’s this about? We know her to be the heel manager, we know her to be the heel wrestler, if she’s introducing them, that means that’s what they’re about.’ It was really just to help make the transition for the fans easier to go, ‘that’s who they are.’ I was like, ‘Okay.’”

On how the group has evolved: “Since then, it’s evolved so much. I didn’t really do all that much talking, to be honest. It’s evolved so much since now. Being with Rey, first of all, dream come true, what the hell. Eight year old Thea is like, ‘what is life?’ Now, having Rey on our side, and having LWO be a thing again, it’s crazy. Especially because Rey is like, ‘you’re the first female member of LWO ever.’ It’s crazy. We’re wrestlers in a team, not me managing wrestlers.”
