Chelsea Green has been labeled "fragile" by many fans as she suffered multiple wrist injuries during her time at WWE.
In her debut on WWE SmackDown, she suffered a wrist injury, which sidelined her immediately after. She was unable to compete at ROH Best in the World because she wasn't cleared from another wrist injury.
Speaking to Renee Paquette on Oral Sessions, Green explained why her wrist continues to be injured.
"It's so hard to say because, if I hadn't broken my wrist, would I be fired? Maybe not," Green replied when asked if the wrist injury suffered on SmackDown was a blessing in diguise. "At the end of the day, literally nothing happened. I jumped off the apron, rolled back like I normally would have done, and my wrist snapped...my forearm snapped. The issue was not the move or what happened or that my bones are brittle like so many people have told me. 'I need to take calcium,' thanks, like I don't know that. The issue is, I already had an implant from when I broke it live at NXT and what we didn't know is that I'm allergic to metal implants on my bones. We did not know that until we went back in for surgery, put a larger implant in, and my bones reacted and I had swelling. Right after I was released, I had a lot of pain in my arm and I had been fully cleared and ready to go months prior to being released. My arm just kept getting worse to the point where I couldn't lift five pounds at the gym. I went back to my surgeon and she was like, 'Your bone is rejecting the plate and trying to swell away from the plate.' I had emergency surgery the next day. Then, of course, my bone was healing from that when it re-broke during my 90-days."
Though ROH wouldn't clear her due to the Baltimore Commission, she was able to wrestle at IMPACT Slammiversary as the Tennessee Commission has more relaxed rules.
When asked when she will be fully cleared, Green said, "I wish I could give you a date, but the problem is, I got my cast off and I got a removable cast. They want that removable cast to stay on for six months because of the damage done with previous surgeries and implants on it. At this point, there is no clear date and my doctor is like, 'I already know you're not going to listen to me, so go ahead and not listen to me, but know the repercussions of what's happening.'"
Green is set to compete at ROH Glory by Honor night two on August 21.
