Chelsea Green Was Considered For The Main Roster, More on Her NXT TV Debut

Chelsea Green Was Considered For The Main Roster
Last night on NXT, Chelsea Green made a surprise appearance, attacking both Mia Yim and Kayden Carter.

She then joined Robert Stone on the stage as he announced that 2020 will be the year of The Robert Stone Brand, and that begins with the signing of the hottest free agent, Chelsea.

Green, who signed with WWE in August 2018, made her RAW debut back on December 16th, losing to Charlotte Flair. Along with Deonna Purrazzo, Green has made a number of appearances on the main roster, but they were not considered to be her legitimate call-up.

In the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer mentioned that the initial idea was for Green and Purrazzo to be looked at for either Raw or SmackDown since they were not on NXT television. With Green's appearance on NXT, she is apparently now off limits for the main roster for awhile. There is no word yet on the status of Purrazzo.

Speaking of Chelsea Green, she took to Twitter today and commented on how she's feeling these days.

"I've never been happier than I have been in the past 3 weeks. Not because of the amazing opportunities with work, but because of all of my friends and coworkers who have reached out to support me. I have the best people in my life. I'm the luckiest girl in the world," she wrote.

Green will be in the 11-woman Battle Royal to determine the "Takeover: Portland" opponent for NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley next week, with Bianca Belair, Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai, Vanessa Borne, Santana Garrett, Io Shirai, Shotzi Blackheart, Xia Li, Yim and Carter. Green tweeted that this match is the first official order of business for The Robert Stone Brand.

Green also commented on how she's been working RAW and WWE Main Event tapings as of late, calling it double duty. She wrote, "Your girl's doing double duty. Hottest free agent in @WWE #WWENXT"

Stone, who said the brand is about to change the game, also tweeted on next week's Battle Royal and wrote, "The HOTTEST former free agent @ImChelseaGreen is signed, sealed and delivered to become the number 1 contender next week..."

There's still no word yet on if Green will continue to team with Deonna Purrazzo, or if Stone will continue to manage The Outliers, Dorian Mak and Riddick Moss.
