Chelsea Green Suffers Broken Wrist at NXT Show

Chelsea Green wrestled at last night’s NXT TV tapings (likely a dark match) at Full Sail University for the first time, but said on Twitter that she suffered a broken wrist during her match and would have to undergo surgery this morning.

She was able to continue the match with the broken wrist, defeating Jessie Elaban.

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! Oh yeah…I won the match. 😘

Green, formerly Laurel Van Ness in Impact, signed with WWE in October.
