Chelsea Green Broke Her Wrist In Her First NXT Match

El Rey Network

Chelsea Green‘s road to the WWE has been a winding one, and it just got an unfortunate twist. When Green performed her first match for NXT – a dark match on March 13 – she broke her wrist, delaying her career for the company when it’s barely started.

Green stayed positive about the injury in a post on Instagram twelve hours later, stating:

Today I had the opportunity to wrestle for the first time at Full Sail for @wwenxt 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!

Previously, Green has been a “hot mess” Impact Knockouts Champion, a prolific wrestler on the independent scene, a competitor on Tough Enough in 2015, and physical therapist of Daniel Bryan/tool of Stephanie McMahon to villainously try to destroy Bryan and Brie Bella’s marriage in 2014. Shortly before signing with WWE, she performed on Lucha Underground as Reklusa and wrestled in the women’s match at All In.
