Chelsea Green has disappeared from the WWE since November after suffering a broken wrist during a fatal four-way match for a place on the SmackDown team for the Survivor Series. The match was Green’s debut at Blue Brand, and she was initially ready to win and move forward with the Survivor Series pay-per-view.
It was recently announced that Chelsea Green has signed a new WWE contract, which should last until 2023. Combat recently provided an update on the status of Green’s return to the WWE. According to the report, SmackDown Superstar has now been approved to return to the ring, after the process around Green’s return began sometime around the time of the Royal Rumble earlier this year. Green was apparently completely cleared to return to the ring by mid-February.
It is also claimed that creative pitches have been outlined for Green, but current plans for the contractor are uncertain. It was originally planned for Green to undergo a name change at the time of his debut at SmackDown. Reportedly, her name will be replaced by the new name “Winner”, but it is currently unknown whether this will be the case upon her return.
Chelsea Green is one of the few current WWE Superstars to compete at Tough Enough
Chelsea Green was part of the season of WWE’s 2015 reality show Tough Enough, where she finished in fourth place for women. Like Green, the program features more stars on today’s WWE list.
Both Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville were the stars of the 2015 season. Sonya Deville was eliminated early in the competition, but Rose was runner-up. NXT star Velveteen Dream was also featured in the 2015 show.
Tough Enough’s two most successful stars, The Miz and John Morrison, are both on RAW. Miz was runner-up in the 2004 season, and John Morrison won in 2002.
