Capcom announced Thea Trinidad, also known as WWE superstar Zelina Vega, will be featured as a real-time commentator in Street Fighter 6.
Thea Trinidad is a longtime Street Fighter fan and an active gamer outside of her Zelina Vega persona in WWE. During the 2023 Royal Rumble, Zelina Vega wore a special Juri outfit in collaboration with Capcom’s Street Fighter 6. Shortly after her appearance in the Royal Rumble, WWE and Capcom confirmed Zelina Vega as a real-time commentator in Street Fighter 6.
“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.”
Here’s an overview of the Real-Time Commentary feature in Street Fighter 6:
