Ideal brand for ‘The Comeback Kid’

There is a possibility that the former NXT Superstar will return on SmackDown. She has a better chance of being able to make an impact there than on WWE Raw.

The red brand is dominated by Superstars like Alexa Bliss, Asuka, Charlotte Flair and as of late, Lacey Evans and Lana. On top of that, Green’s last feud was with Charlotte Flair on NXT.

If she debuts on WWE Raw, the WWE Universe will expect a full-fledged rivalry between the ‘Queen’ and Green.

 

On SmackDown, Green can be placed in any storyline as per the convenience of the creative team.

She can even form a tag team with Bayley or Sasha Banks, both of whom seem a little incomplete without a sidekick. On the other hand, she can join Bianca Belair to take down Banks.

Not to forget, Carmella wants to be the next SmackDown Women’s Champion, so Green and Carmella can feud until the victor becomes the number one contender for the title.

Why did Chelsea Green take a break from wrestling?

Chelsea Green was on track to become a star on WWE SmackDown. The plan was for her to win the Survivor Series qualifying match. However, during the match, she broke her wrist, and Liv Morgan secured the victory.

She updated her fans, letting them know she won’t be back inside the ring for a while because of surgery.

Her first push came courtesy of Paul Heyman, who was the Executive Director of Raw at that time. Hebelieved that Green had the power to reach great heights in WWE.

If she returns now, there won’t be an Executive Director Paul Heyman giving her the push and talking her up to Vince McMahon.
