Thea Trinidad, also known as WWE Superstar Zelina Vega, has climbed to the top rope and somersaulted directly into Street Fighter™ 6 as the newest addition to the in-game commentator roster. Thea, a longtime Street Fighter™ fan, brings her strength, style, and electrifying personality to the growing roster of illustrious color commentators in Street Fighter 6. She is a current WWE Superstar, self-proclaimed gamer, and no stranger to the Street Fighter franchise, even modeling her ring gear as Juri at this weekend’s WWE Royal Rumble in San Antonio, Texas.
“I’ve been an avid gamer since I was a child and a huge fan of Street Fighter,” said Thea Trinidad. “I can still remember epic matches with my brother, and I would always beat him with my favorite character Vega. It’s surreal to now be a part of this amazing franchise and I am honored and thankful for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”
