This weekend, World Wrestling Entertainment held its annual Royal Rumble PPV from Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas. It wasn't a bad event, by dubdubee standards, with some highlights including a shocking return from a ringside legend, a dominating performance from giant pile of meat Brock Lesnar, and this nice bit of cosplay from Zelina Vega .
Vega, (in what may be the greatest moment in pro wrestling history since the Shockmaster fell through a wall), joined the Royal Rumble match at number 25, and entered dressed in costume. Royal stylized after the evil Empress of Mortal Kombat, Queen Sindel. Proudly walking down the aisle in a dress reminiscent of Her Majesty's MK 11 look, Vega ditched the trimmings to reveal a ring closer to Sindel's earlier appearances.
Unfortunately for Vega, this gear didn't automatically endow the star with the power of flight, and despite her best efforts, she was strangled and thrown to ringside by former two-time NXT Champion Shayna Baszler, who would go on a rampage. seven more eliminations.
This wasn't, of course, Vega's first cosplay rodeo. At the 2022 Royal Rumble, Zelina entered the match wearing her Street Fighter namesake costume. That same month, Vega appeared at the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event, this time dressed as the Edenian Jade assassin. Vega, alongside his charge Andrade "Cien" Almas, have also previously dressed as Pokemon's Team Rocket for a promotional shoot.
I love that wrestlers aren't just massive nerds anymore. It's the best timeline.
The 2022 Royal Rumble is available to watch now on the WWE Network.
