Chelsea Green wants to headline the upcoming women-only pay-per-view from NWA.
Recently, it was announced by Mickie James that the National Wrestling Alliance will host its first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event on August 28.
Titled “Empowerrr,” Mickie James will serve as the executive producer of the show, something that she says will help her in her journey to grow women's wrestling and move away from “novelty bullshit.”
Chelsea Green, who was released by WWE on April 15, is no stranger to Mickie James. They were in WWE at the same time and were even scheduled to have a program together at one point. Now, Chelsea has taken to her podcast, Green With Envy, to comment on her feelings about Mickie James, the upcoming event, and why she says she deserves to headline the show on August 28.
“I mean, this is only messy because WWE fired Mickie James or, should I say, ‘released.’ My dad doesn't like it when I say ‘fired’. WWE must be fucking shaking in their boots right now because Mickie James is going for gold. She was just hired on by NWA to be an executive producer for the first-ever all-women's NWA pay-per-view. I am so excited,” said Green. “[Mickie] is amazing. Clearly, she has pushed for this for years and has been overlooked. So, I am so happy that she's headed to NWA. She's going to be with her husband, be with her family, and [she] gets to start this amazing all-women's pay per view. I feel like I mean, it can't just be a pay-per-view, right? They've got to do an all-women's show. They must, if they're going to hire Mickie James on. She is such an icon for all of the women. I mean, not just women, but all the women in professional wrestling. She is the epitome of talent, character, wrestling ability, promo skill, everything, which is why obviously I absolutely love her. You know, I definitely based the ‘Hot Mess’ off of shades of Mickie James versus Trish Stratus. So I love Mickie, I'm so excited for this pay per view that pay per view is again, it's an NWA pay per view. It's called Empowerrr, which I love and it is going to be going live on August 28. In the Chase Ballroom in St. Louis. "
Green concluded by noting that she wants to be the main event of this first show and encouraged fans to let their voices be heard on the matter.
“I'm excited for Mickie. I'm excited to see what comes of this. I mean, is she going to be wrestling as well, that would be epic, or is she just going to be the producer? I mean, either way, guys, tweet NWA, tweet, Mickie James. Let her know I want to be on the goddamn show. Okay, I want to be the motherfucking main event of Empowerrr, because that's what I deserve. Dammit, Mickie. If you're listening to this, I want to be on that pay per view and I want to be the main event.”
