Zelina Vega on facing Asuka at WWE Clash of Champions
Zelina Vega confessed that her goal was to become the RAW Women's Champion and she had wanted to be a champion in WWE from a very young age.
"This is a moment I’ve been waiting for since I started. Since I was a kid really. At age four I knew this is what I wanted to do. It was a come full-circle moment and living that moment. You feel almost like a kid again. It’s like you are living that dream for her and making sure she is proud. It also doesn’t take me away from the goal at hand. The goal is to become the women’s champion."
Zelina Vega went on to add that this was coming full circle for her, and recalled how she had faced Asuka on WWE NXT, after which Mickie James had challenged her. Now, after Asuka beat Mickie James on RAW, she was getting a shot at Asuka at WWE Clash of Champions.
"Whether that is on Raw or on pay-per-view, that is the goal regardless. It’s finally time. It feels like it’s time. I’m ready. I’m really meticulous as you said about when and how I do things. This feels like the right time now. Back in 2016, I had a match against Asuka. I lost that match. It was in NXT. Mickie James was the one to ask for a title match after that. Now four years later Mickie was in the match [last week] with Asuka. She lost that match. Now I’m asking for a title match. Someone brought that to my attention. It really is full-circle."Published 22 Sep 2020, 19:00 IST
