Chelsea Green was called up in the middle of 2020, but we didn't see her until November. There may have been a reason for that.
As Fightful had reported, Green was a favorite of Paul Heyman, who fell out of control of the Raw brand around the time she was called up. Green spoke with Spencer Loves Wrestling, and said confirmed the two had a great working relationship.
“So, I learn things on the dirt sheets as well. It's funny, because sometimes the dirt sheets get them right, (and) sometimes they totally get them wrong. But, that is something that I felt when I came up in December, January, and did a couple matches for RAW and Main Event, I did feel like I had a great bond and connection with Paul Heyman. We had kind of started our relationship off in NXT, when he watched a couple of my promos and gave me really amazing feedback and really, really positive feedback. That kind of fuelled my fire and lit a fire under my butt until the next time I saw him, which was the RAW and the Main Event. I think I jumped into that position the best I could, and he saw that. And so, I'm thinking that the dirt sheets are correct and that he has really had my back this whole time, which I love. I think that's amazing. I'm just so proud that someone that is the best in this business thinks that I'm great! How crazy is that?! We're just going to go with that's 100% true," said Green.
Green did have a Raw debut of sorts in 2019, but it never led to anthing else on the brand. She expanded on the appearance, saying she was excited to be in the ring with one of the best in the world.
“So here's a fun fact that a lot of people don't know, because everyone has said exactly what you said, that like, 'oh, wow, they just put you on there. If that's your debut, why didn't you have vignettes? Why didn't you get, you know, hyped up and stuff?' But actually, what people don't know is a lot of - I don't know about men, but a lot of women, before they debut actually do have a couple of matches that are just like that. They tend to get thrown into a match like that, they sink or they swim, they usually lose. I mean, of course, unless it was a real debut. It's funny because a lot of girls told me that that day, when I was going out to have that match with Charlotte. I was really excited! I didn't care. I'm like, 'I don't care if this is my debut or not, I'm going to be on friggin' RAW, and my family is going to get to see me, and all my friends and everyone that has seen me work so hard for six years, they're going to see me on Monday Night freaking RAW! So, I don't care what happened, but a lot of the girls did tell me like, 'don't worry, you know, this might seem like your debut, but actually, they'll probably do this and then take you off TV and then repackage you,' and stuff like that. So it has happened to a lot of people. It's just, we forget, right? In wrestling, we like to forget those things, and then we remember what we want to remember, which is the big, grand debuts and the storylines and things like that.”
