Zelina Vega OnlyFans: Firing From WWE & Return

This article was last updated by on

Thea Megan Trinidad Büdgen, known professionally as Zelina Vega, is an American wrestler and actress who, in early 2020, broke the internet after launching her OnlyFans account.

Zelina recently made headlines after she slapped Madcap Moss in front of a live audience at a Miami event.

During the event in December 2022, Zelina stood in the ring and slapped Madcap Moss after an argument eliciting a huge pop from the live audience. Emma entered the ring after the slap and dealt with the Zelina Vega problem.

Moving on, while WWE’s policy of prohibiting its superstars from using third-party platforms such as Cameo and Twitch affected the streamers like Zelina, who ran a Twitch account along with her husband Aleister Black, she found a way around the company’s third-party mandate with OnlyFans.

Initially, WWE’s third-party mandate did not extend to OnlyFans, but it was later announced that Vega’s association with the platform was a direct breach of the rules, which angered CEO Vince McMahon, causing the organization to release her from her deal.

Vega’s account under her cosplay name “Megan Minx” was dedicated to her cosplay outfits, which also included a sultry Catwoman.

Some of her most famous cosplays on the platform included Poison Ivy, and Mortal Combat, among others.

Zelina Vega | OnlyFans & Firing From WWE
