Chelsea Green gives credit where credit is due.
Former IMPACT Knockouts Champion Chelsea Green recently partook in a WWE tryout at the Performance Center in Orlando alongside her fellow former IMPACT Wrestling colleague Robbie E. While it has yet to be announced if Chelsea will be involved in the forthcoming Mae Young Classic tapings, she is proud of the effort she gave during her tryout regardless if the company reaches out to her or not.
Green spoke with Jay Reddick of the Orlando Sentinel and explained why she is proud of her efforts during the tryouts but also stated that she is happy to have options in case things with WWE do not pan out.
“That’s why I went in there so confident,” Green said. “I’m going to give it my all, but I’m also going to know my worth, know that I have options, and that’s the best feeling in the world. This was grueling in a different way,” Green said. “It included skill, agility, mental toughness, and things you really need to be a wrestler. I like that change. They’ve kind of perfected this tryout,” Green said. “It starts out with skills that if you don’t pick them up quickly, maybe wrestling isn’t for you. In this situation, it was very much sink or swim.”
Chelsea Green went on to credit the trainers that work at the Performance Center noting that WWE has some of the best trainers working at the P.C. and then she proceeded to touch on how the decision whether to bring her into the company or not is completely in the hands of WWE.
“They have so many amazing trainers,” Green said. “On top of that, some of the NXT talent was coming in and helping, and some of the main roster would come give little pep talks. Mark Henry was there. It was such a cool atmosphere." She continued, "I don’t know if anyone can say, 'Oh, I know I’m going to get signed'', Green said. “You don’t know what they’re looking for. You might have excelled in-ring but you might not have excelled at promos. It’s about giving it 110 percent, and then having NXT want you in their family. If they don’t want me, I am still happy with the performance that I gave. That’s all you can ask for.”
