After seeing Rachell “Valkyrae” Hofstetter express an interest in boxing, which was later confirmed by Creator Clash founder Ian “iDubbbz” Washburn, WWE Superstar Zelina Vega offered to train her to wrestle at the place.
In May, Vega, who is also a streamer, said the YouTuber could jump in the ring with her at any time. Valkyrae was “a bit scared” at the thought, so it seemed unlikely.
However, the WWE heel didn’t stop there. She had another chance to draw him on July 20, suggesting the pair could team up for a tag match, pairing Queen Zelina and the Queen of YouTube. “Valkyrae must stop playing!” she tweeted. “She can be my partner who won’t give up on me at WrestleMania!”
Vega was referring to her former tag team partner, Carmella, with whom she shared the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship until they lost it at WrestleMania 38 in April after turning on each other. a decision that cost them their titles at the same time.
The WWE icon thinks Valkyrae would be the perfect replacement and has even offered to train her. “Boxing is drugs, and I’m sure you’ll be good at it too, but if you ever want [wrestle], we will teach you everything you need to know! she said.

Will Valkyrae and Vega really team up?
The prospect isn’t outside the realm of possibility given that YouTube star Logan Paul made his professional in-ring debut for WWE at WrestleMania 38.
Wrestling is a form of sports entertainment, not so different from other types of content creation. It takes vocational training to master the athletic component of the trade, but it can be taught.
As we saw with Creator Clash, the content creators who attended the event were up to the task and delivered in spades. Professional wrestling at the highest level is a different beast, but it can be done.
Valkyrae is unlikely to accept Vega’s offer anytime soon.
The YouTuber has her sights set on Creator Clash 2, which has been confirmed to take place in 2023. But never say never: a WWE future could be waiting for Valkyrae.
