WWE star Zelina Vega recently spoke with Scott Fishman of SEScoops on a number of topics including the company culturally expanding their women’s division in order to become a more diverse group of competitors.

Vega said, “It’s cool.” “I think it’s amazing that WWE is kind of like, the melting pot of a bunch of amazing cultures, and we can all learn from each other and all just blossom in our own way. I think I’m pretty sure Elektra is Puerto Rican as well. But just to have that moment in Puerto Rico like I did for people, even though she won’t cop to it. You know, have a moment like that and have people like her or Roxanne or people looking like, wow, we can do that. Like, now that’s something we can accomplish, too. You know, and have our own moments and have our own ways.”

“I just think it’s really cool that, there’s still first time evers somehow. Somehow there’s still first time evers. It’s like being the first ever queen, I’m still like… ‘Wow, that happened, huh?’ Like, that’s like a history book thing. As an 8-year-old kid, like, just wanted to be here and whatever. I’m like, whoa, that’s way cooler than I thought it would get to.”
