Chelsea Green on recent WWE releases, possible NXT Evolution event, Royal Rumble appearance



WWE NXT star Chelsea Green recently did an interview with Spencer Love of the Conversations With Love podcast to discuss a variety of topics. The following highlights were sent to us:

On the recent WWE releases:

“I know, and everyone on social media’s like ‘oh my god, poor Chelsea!’ I’m like, well, no, I have a job, I’m very, very thankful that I have a job, because who knows? If this cut had’ve come three months ago, I might not have had a job. It was just you had to be in the right place, or the wrong place, at the wrong time. Unfortunately, this is not the first time that this has happened. This has been happening all over the world in every profession, and it’s really, really unfortunate that two of the people who are closest to me in my life were released, but on the other hand, both of them are going to go on to do so much more, and I would feel terrible if that wasn’t the case, but that’s the case. Like, Deonna has so much potential. She was not used in the capacity she should have been used in. Matt has so much potential and has continued to prove that throughout his entire career. So, whatever Matt does, he’s fine. I’m really excited to see what happens once the world gets back up-and-running. Once indies come back and everything, I’m really excited to see what they do.”

“It’s not necessarily a sad thing. I think for the fans, it was really sad to watch that all unfold on Twitter. But, for myself, and Matt, and Deonna, I think we all know no matter what happens from here on out, this isn’t the end of any road for them. We have so many opportunities nowadays.”

“I think Evolution, I would say the opposite about Evolution as I did about SHIMMER and Shine. Everyone in WWE, they’ve moulded this character. They have this persona. They have storylines. We’re all invested in each match differently. I would love to see an Evolution again. I don’t necessarily think we need to have one every year. I don’t think we need to hammer it into fans, like ‘you need to like this Women’s Evolution, you need to support us.’ That’s not necessary. But, I do think, okay, let’s do another one. We have so much amazing talent, and with NXT just exploding now, we could do an NXT Evolution.

Entering the Royal Rumble:

“I don’t know why, but I get this women’s intuition I always call it, where I just know when something’s going to happen. And although I hadn’t really been used on TV or anything, I just said to Rob, ‘Rob, I’m going to get gear made for the Rumble. I feel like I’m going to be asked to be in it.’ And he kind of like laughed at me, like ‘what? Okay?’ I just had this feeling, this gut feeling, like ‘I don’t know, man, I just feel like I’m going to be in it.’”

“I didn’t really find out I was in it until the last minute. Nobody does, and even when you’re then put in it, you’re not necessarily 100% in it. They change it all around last-minute, they change your number, they change whether you’re in it or not in it. So, I was excited, but I didn’t want to get excited until my music hit. I’m telling you, when my music hit, oh my god, I’m so glad that I got kicked out right away because that was the most nerve-wracking thing I’ve ever done.”

Why she feels she keeps getting unexpected opportunities: 

“I think what happens is someone just throws me a bone, and I think that I’m really good in a situation where it is sink or swim. So far, I have managed to doggy-paddle my way out of all these crazy situations I’ve been thrown in, and I think that has done me a lot of favours. I don’t think anyone expected for me to be used on RAW that day, and then, when they just threw me that bone, I was like ‘well, here it is!’ Even if this is just a match where I’m losing in two minutes, I don’t care. I’m going to go out there and look the best I’ve ever looked and look at Charlotte in the eyes and show every single person that yes, there is another woman out here who is the same size as Charlotte, who can go toe-to-toe with her, and I think that’s what I did.”

Green also talked about taking on an increased role in NXT, wrestling at All In, working with Robert Stone, and much more. You can check out the full interview here.
