Chelsea Green turned a lot of heads at All In last weekend. The “Hot Mess” participated in the well-reviewed fatal 4-way match along with Tessa Blanchard, Madison Rayne, and the fastest rising dentist on the independent scene, Dr. Britt Baker DMD.
Now 4 years into her pro-career, Green is a former Knockouts Champion and was ranked #26 in the PWI Female 50 rankings last year. Her career in wrestling began in rather unique fashion, however. Just months into her pro-career, Green was admitting to having an affair with Daniel Bryan live on Monday Night Raw.
Green was a guest on the most recent edition of Edge and Christian’s podcast and told the story of how she was given the role of Megan Miller on WWE programming. Miller was Daniel Bryan‘s storyline physiotherapist in the summer of 2014.
Now on @EandCPod @ImChelseaGreen joins us. 3 Canadians in 1 convo so you it’s gonna be good. We talk everything from her starting in the biz to ending up on Raw w/ very little experience to living w/ a man child (@ZackRyder) to her standout match at #AllIn https://t.co/nufUV8t2oV pic.twitter.com/FDs28clUr0

Chelsea Green On Role As Daniel Bryan’s Physiotherapist
Green is from Victoria, British Columbia. The coastal city is also where Taya Valkyrie is from. As Taya would years earlier, Green also decided to train at the Storm Wrestling Academy in Calgary. Storm’s school has an excellent reputation and as such WWE will reach out periodically for his students if they need extra performers.
“I started in January and by August I was already cutting a promo on Raw,” Green said.
Green was touring through Canada and got a call to be a “Rosebud”. Green dropped what she was doing and joined WWE at their house show in Vancouver. In the back that night, she overheard WWE offer another indy wrestler a larger role on Raw. Green knew this Canadian indy wrestler didn’t have a passport and wouldn’t be able to work the show, however.
“What she didn’t tell WWE is that she didn’t have a passport. So she said ‘yeah’ but I’m standing beside her and I know she doesn’t have a passport,” Green said.
Eventually, Green was given a call and offered the spot. She was called into an office with Vince McMahon, Triple H, and Stephanie to talk about the role of Daniel Bryan‘s physical therapist. She admitted that she would likely feel more pressure if she met the same three today.
“If I met them now my knees would be shaking,” Green said. At the time, she says, she was just trying to be professional.
Chelsea says her performance on the August 11th, 2014 Raw was the first of her sports entertainment career. It can be viewed below:
