It takes a lot to do that. Vince McMahon is a lot of things and some of those are not as good as others. One of the main criticisms of McMahon is that he can be a bit out of touch at times, but he is still going to get what is going on at least some of the time. Earlier this year, there was a decision made that left a lot of people confused, but McMahon did try to make up for it.

In a new interview with TalkSport, Zelina Vega revealed that McMahon personally called her to apologize for leaving her off of the September 10 SmackDown. Vega’s father passed away nearly twenty years before the show on September 11, 2001 and Vega had been featured in materials promoting the show. However, she did not appear on the show as her appearance was cut due to time issues. McMahon told her that it was not a personal matter but rather making time for other things. Vega has since gone on to win the Queen’s Crown tournament.

Vega is a very talented star. Check out some of her WWE work:

Opinion: I don’t think what McMahon did was on purpose or a way to hurt Vega, but this was something that could have been avoided. I have a bit of a hard time believing that you couldn’t have her come to the ring, wrestle a minute long match, maybe say a little something and be done. It would have solved this whole thing but instead they couldn’t find anything to cut. That shouldn’t be so difficult, but then it wouldn’t be WWE.

What do you think of Vega? What is next for her in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
