How Vince McMahon Let Popular Anime Character Make Hidden Appearance On WWE TV

Vince McMahon

Zelina Vega recently explained some business that she once talked about with Vince McMahon.

Recently appearing on “That’s Dope” for an interview, Zelina Vega talked about getting Neil Kaplan — who is a voice actor of “Naruto” — for her WWE theme song, saying that she had to convince Vince McMahon to make things happen.

Vega said:

“I had Neil Kaplan, who’s the English voice actor for [“Naruto” character] Madara [Uchiha] — I had him do my entrance music. When you hear the music start, you hear his voice as Madara saying, ‘All hail the Queen, Queen Zelina,’ and then the music would start. ‘Naruto’ is like the WWE of anime, and he’s like ‘Okay, I like Naruto’, So I was like ‘Madura is kind of like what Paul Heyman is to Roman [Reigns],’ and he was like, ‘We need it.’”

Zelina Vega also mentioned that she attempted to get the Naruto run to be a part of her theme as well, however, those plans fell through. Vega also revealed that VInce McMahon originally thought Crunchyroll was a kind of sushi.
