SAG-AFTRA, a union representing over 160,000 entertainers,
today wrote on Twitter that they had a powerful
conversation with Thea Trinidad, who until last week was
wrestling in WWE under the name of Zelina Vega.
Vega was fired last Friday before Smackdown, but Vega knew
what was coming and decided to go down in a blaze of glory,
tweeting that she supported unionization. 10 minutes later,
WWE tweeted that Vega was fired. SAG-AFTRA, and its
president, Gabrielle Carteris, tweeted to Trinidad their
support and Carteris even gave her e-mail address so
Trinidad could reach out.
We support her and others as they work to protect and
empower themselves, SAG-AFTRAs tweet today continued.
WWE later confirmed that Trinidad was fired for breach of
contract after she refused to stop using Twitch and then
created an OnlyFans account.
Trinidad said that the conversation with SAG-AFTRA was very
powerful indeed and thanked them for their time and
insight. SAG-AFTRA has vowed to work with professional
wrestlers to help them.
