CHELSEA GREEN LOOKS FOR PAYBACK AGAINST PRISCILLA KELLY ON FEBRUARY 8TH IN ORLANDO AS MLW PRESENTS ROAD TO THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
ORLANDO – Major League Wrestling has confirmed Chelsea Green will make her long awaited MLW debut February 8th in Orlando as she looks for payback against Priscilla Kelly.
Chelsea Green was scheduled to face Santana Garrett in her MLW debut at MLW Never Say Never. Then, dark and strange events occurred when an unknown assailant attacked Chelsea Green backstage.
Green would end up requiring medical attention at the Orlando Regional Medical Center that cold December night which would ultimately result in her being pulled from her match with Garret scheduled for the evening.
“When Chelsea was being helped into the ambulance she had only one request: that we give her the first crack at Priscilla. I promised her I would honor this request. So, with Chelsea now cleared for competition, we’re going to make this match happen. Chelsea Green versus Priscilla Kelly is set for February 8th in Orlando,” said MLW CEO Court Bauer.
While February 8th‘s MLW: Road to World The Championship will mark the debut for both athletes, Priscilla has been a presence in the women’s division for the past few months.
Santana Garrett has been a victim of several attacks by Priscilla Kelly as well as some disturbing conduct that was revealed at the end of MLW: Zero Hour. League officials are looking into an alleged breaking and entering event at Santana’s residence. “Unless Santana presses charges, MLW bylaws limit disciplinary action,” said a league source.
In the meantime, Priscilla will compete February 8th in Orlando against one of today’s most entertaining competitors in the women’s division. Green was highly ranked in the Pro Wrestling Illustrated Top 50 women of 2017. Trained under the tutelage of Lance Storm up in Calgary, Green can impress with her technical wrestling.
A background in stunt work in TV/films before committing full-time to the sport, Green has competed in Stardom, the top Japanese women’s group and has wrestled all over the world including India.
As for Priscilla’s background? It’s clouded in mystery. However, February 8th fans and competitors alike will finally see what she can conjure once the bell rings at Gilt Nightclub.
In addition to this match, MLW will present the opening round of its World Championship tournament on February 8th featuring:
MVP vs. “Filthy” Tom Lawlor
Matt Riddle vs. Jeff Cobb
Shane “Swerve” Strickland vs. Brody King
Jimmy Havoc vs. Maxwell Jacob Friedman
The winners of the February 8th opening round will move on to compete in the semi-finals on March 8th with the next World Champion crowned on April 12th at the World Championship Finals.
Should one of the competitors be forced to withdraw, alternates will be activated. The alternates will only be revealed if activated.
