The 32-year-old professional wrestler supported the new announcement on Saturday, January 28, at WWE’s Royal Rumble event in San Antonio, Texas, when she entered the 30 women’s match at #21 dressed as the Street Fighter character Juri Han. “All hail the queen!,” wrote Street Fighter 6’s official Twitter account to introduce the new commentator. “Professional wrestling star Thea Trinidad (Zelina Vega) lends her electrifying personality and voice to the Real Time Commentary Feature as a Color Commentator in #StreetFighter6.”
Vega’s addition to the franchise is part of a new first-ever commentary feature in the game’s history. Street Fighter 6 is allowing players to choose their own match commentators, each made available as DLC. Zelina Vega joins other commentators, including professional Street Fighter esports players, well-known tournament commentators, and even content creators.
