Chelsea Green: I Thought WWE Would Be Mad At Me When Matt Cardona Wore Replica WWE Women's Tag Title

Chelsea Green says she did not know about Matt Cardona taking a replica title to Japan ahead of time.

On the July 17, 2023, episode of WWE Raw, Chelsea Green and Sonya Deville won the WWE Women's Tag Tea, Championship. Green's husband, Matt Cardona, then started carrying a replica WWE Women's Tag Team Championship, specifically when he competed for DDT in Japan, and claiming that he was one of the champions.

Speaking with Joe Vulpis on the Lightweights Podcast, Chelsea Green was asked about the situation, and she stated that she had no idea he was going to do that. She noted that she was worried that WWE would be mad about it.

“Oh my gosh. Okay, so he came and watched me win the title in Atlanta. I guess after I won the title, he immediately went online and bought the replica, got overnighted by WWE Shop or Fanatics, and had it like two days later to go to Japan with. He didn’t ask me, he didn’t tell me. I saw him with it in Japan. Everyone thought, because he was in Japan on my off days, that it was the real belt. Yes [everyone thought he took my belt]. I was just waiting for someone at work to call me and ask. Thank god they did not believe it. But I was worried. I was worried, I’m not gonna lie, because he does stuff like that. He does crazy things. He makes videos out of all my wrestling stuff. I am the butt of all his jokes [laughs]. So I really thought that WWE was gonna get mad at me, and I was gonna have to prove, like, ‘Here I am, this is the belt. He’s got a different one,'" Green said.

Green and Piper Niven, who replaced Deville due to injury, lost the titles to Katana Chance and Kayden Carter on the December 18 episode of WWE Raw.
