Malakai Black talks Zelina Vega working for WWE

Last updated

AEW star Malakai Black recently discussed his partner Zelina Vega working for WWE whilst he works for the competition, All Elite Wrestling.

Black made the comments during The Zaslow Show on 790 The Ticket in Miami, saying that he does get to spend as much time with Vega as he wants to.

‘Do I see her as much as I want to? No, but we both made a conscious decision” Malakai Black revealed. “The one we made years ago that we wanted to be professional athletes, and we know what comes with that. She’s no stranger to being on the road. She’s been doing this for 12 years, I’ve been doing this for 21 years.

“We made a commitment to each other, so yes, sometimes it gets tough, and yes, it requires extra travel and extra sacrifice, but at the end of the day you have to realize it’s temporary” Black admitted. “It’s not going to last forever.

“I’m very aware of the mortality of being a professional wrestler or athlete’¦I say I have another five years on top, and another good five years left to help others get on top.

“So all in all if I can squeeze in a decade’¦this is what I will do until the day I die. I’m setting up a small performance center in the house that my wife and me are currently building close to Tampa. Our goal is to start training people, to get the next generation ready” Black concluded.
