#4. Tony Khan on AEW's interest in signing former WWE Superstar Thea Trinidad, fka Zelina Vega
Thea Trinidad, fka Zelina Vega, was released from the WWE in November 2020 after disagreements over WWE's third-party edict. Trinidad's 90-day non-compete clause recently came to an end, and there has been a lot of speculation regarding her next destination.
Tony Khan was the guest on a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio. The AEW CEO was asked about the possibility of seeing Thea Trinidad in All Elite Wrestling.
Khan was under the impression that Trinidad's 90-day non-compete clause was still active. The AEW boss admitted that he has been waiting for the clause to expire, which seemingly confirmed AEW's interest in the former WWE Superstar.
Khan said that he would love to see Zelina Vega's status after AEW wraps up the ongoing women's title eliminator tournament and the Revolution PPV.
"Isn't she in a 90-day non-compete? She was in a non-compete last time I checked. I've been waiting for that. I don't talk to people when they have the non-compete. If hers' expired, it must have just expired. I've been waiting on her non-compete to expire. I'd have to check the math to see if she expired. When we get through this tournament and through this pay-per-view, I'd be interested to see where she's at." H/t Fightful
Trinidad had dropped a possible AEW Dynamite teaser recently, and while she didn't appear on AEW's flagship show, all roads still point towards the former WWE star being All Elite very soon.
