Chelsea Green Breaks Wrist During NXT Debut, Undergoing Surgery Today

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.

Chelsea Green’s Road To WWE

Chelsea Green was trained by Lance Storm and made her professional debut back in 2014. She has wrestled for various promotions including Lucha Underground and Impact Wrestling, where she is a former Knockouts Champion (as Laurel Van Ness).

Green has actually made a few WWE TV appearances before. She was part of Tough Enough Season 6. That cast also included Velveteen Dream, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville. She also portrayed Daniel Bryan’s physical therapist back in 2014.

Chelsea Green was signed to WWE in August 2018.
