Chelsea Green understands the art of getting over without going over.
Of course, every pro wrestler would like to win more matches than they lose. However, there are some wrestlers who are just simply far more dialed into the entertainment aspect of the industry and choose to champion connections with audiences over stats in the record books.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet on the Insight podcast, Green reflected on her time as "The Hot Mess" in TNA Wrestling and revealed that John Mayer once told her that she reminded him of several people he's dated.
“Sometimes I think that we’re all so caught up in winning and I’m just not. I’ve been doing this 10 years. It’s not about winning. What’s it about? It’s about making people feel a certain way," she said. "When I became The Hot Mess in IMPACT that’s when I realized, that’s when the light bulb like friggin flashed in my face, like oh wow, people don’t care. People didn’t care that I was cool and winning. They don’t care that I won the championship. They care that I turn crazy, they care that I feel like their crazy best friend. I feel like their crazy ex-girlfriend. John Mayer sat in front of me at All In and said, Oh my God, you remind me of a lot of people I dated like that’s the feeling I want you to feel with a character. I don’t need you to go home and be like wow, she’s a real winner.”
Chelsea Green also recently spoke about her husband Matt Cardona potentially returning to WWE. Green says she, too, doesn't understand why Matt hasn't gotten a call. Read her comments here.
