After weeks of hype and anticipation, former NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and his business manager Zelina Vega finally debuted on SmackDown LIVE last Tuesday. After Almas dominated a local competitor, Vega got on the microphone and said that she and Almas were expecting much more in their debut. Vega made it clear that nobody on Team Blue would be taking advantage of them or Almas’ talents, but she and “El Idolo” would be taking over SmackDown LIVE.
Austin Aries, who is the current Impact World Champion, congratulated Vega on her SmackDown LIVE debut and confirmed that they are no longer a couple.

Their breakup had been rumored since last summer as Vega deleted photos of herself with Aries from her Instagram account. Until yesterday neither had addressed their relationship status.
Vega and Aries started dating in 2014 or 2015. A number of fans were under the belief that they got engaged after Vega posted a photo of a ring on social media in April 2016. Vega, however, then said that Aries actually gave her a promise ring.
