NXT newcomer Chelsea Green broke her wrist at Wednesday night’s TV tapings from Full Sail University. The injury took place mid-way through her NXT TV debut. She was able to complete the match, but is scheduled to undergo surgery Thursday morning.

She posted a message on social media detailing the situation.

“Today I had the opportunity to wrestle for the first time at Full Sail for WWE NXT after years of dreaming of it! Wow, it was everything I had imagined it would be!!!? Of course, with this job comes occupational hazards. Unfortunately, I broke my wrist mid-match & will require surgery first thing tomorrow morning. It sucks. I’m upset, I’m angry, I’m sore… but I’ll be back soon. This is just a tiny bump in the road to many goals I have set for 2019!”

It’s an unfortunate setback for the talented performer. However, it seems like she is keeping a good attitude about things.
