The former Laurel Van Ness is excited about 2018.
Speaking to the Orlando Sentinel, Chelsea Green didn't give any particular reason as to why she left Impact Wrestling, but did talk about her feelings regarding the big move.
“It’s stressful, it’s crazy, it’s exciting, all at once,” Green said. “…It was a difficult choice to make, and that’s why I’m so split -- excited and scared. But it’s going to be a really, really good year for me on the indies, hopefully putting on solid matches and wrestling in more countries.”
Of course, with her now a free agent, rumors about a potential WWE debut are rampant. She doesn't dismiss a a return under the WWE umbrella, but she's looking at all options right now.
“I’d be crazy to say no I haven’t [thought about WWE],” Green said. “It’s always in the back of your mind for any wrestler. It was the only thing in my mind when I started with ‘Tough Enough’ in 2014. But I’ve grown a little more open and found options I never knew I had before."
“Now, if WWE calls tomorrow, that would be amazing," she added."If Ring of Honor calls tomorrow, amazing. But now I have options. … I never thought I’d say that. When I first started out wrestling in front of 100 people, I thought, ‘Chelsea, you’re better than this. You should be working in front of thousands!’ But I was crazy. The things I’ve been able to do -- main events, cage matches, all kinds of stipulations – the opportunities there are at an all-time high.”
Green wrestled on the last set of tapings, dropping the Knockouts title to Allie and did several jobs before the tapings ended.
