Former Impact Wrestling Knockouts Champion Chelsea Green made her return to in-ring action after being sidelined due to a broken wrist that resulted in her getting surgery.
She did so by teaming up with Deonna Purrazzo and lost to Lacey Lane & Kacy Catanzaro at Saturday’s NXT event in Venice, FL at the Venice Community Center. This served as the second match on the card.
This marks the time that she’s worked a match since suffering the broken wrist during a dark match at the March 13th NXT TV tapings where she defeated Jessie Elaban.
Before she signed with WWE in October 2018, Green established her name while competing under the Impact Wrestling banner as Laurel Van Ness where she was a Knockouts Champion.
