In a repeat of last year’s Black Friday, WWE released a bunch of wrestlers citing budgetary reasons. One of them is Chelsea Green, a talented wrestler who only wrestled one match on SmackDown before being released. However, Green is ready to get back on her feet.

Despite the WWE’s ninety-day no-compete clause, Chelsea Green has begun taking bookings. The former Impact Women’s Champion and Lucha Underground star is ready to head back to the independent scene and hopefully another promotion.

In her interview with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Wrestling, Green claimed she’s open to return to IMPACT, while also keen on wrestling in ROH. She said she’s wrestled in every company in the world except ROH. Since they’re reviving their women’s division, Chelsea Green could be the star of that division.

While she has announced none of her bookings so far, she claimed in the interview that she’s already accepted a few. It is exciting to speculate where Green will end up, and wherever she goes, she’ll be an incredibly valuable asset.

Who was Green before she came to WWE?

Before coming to WWE, Chelsea Green cut her teeth on the independent scene. She teamed up with household names like Britt Baker and Deonna Purrazzo before her popularity soared. She was most famous for portraying Laurel Van Ness in IMPACT, where she held the Women’s Championship.

Prior to her run in IMPACT, Green appeared on WWE’s Tough Enough but finished fourth. Before her 2015 run in Tough Enough, Green took part in a single WWE segment where she portrayed Megan Miller, a physical therapist who confessed she had an affair with Daniel Bryan.

Once Tough Enough ended, Green made her way to IMPACT to reach the peak of her popularity. She held the Knockout’s Championship within a year of debuting, a testament to her talent as a wrestler. As a part of IMPACT’s roster, Green wrestled at All In, the largest independent show organized in North America.

While her future in IMPACT was bright, WWE attracted her to its greener pastures. She debuted on the black and gold brand in 2018 and made an instant impact.

She sided with Robert Stone, who was her obnoxious manager but actually parodied AEW CEO Tony Khan. Once she kicked Stone out, she received her main roster call-up courtesy of Paul Heyman.
