Did you know Chelsea Green was at one point scheduled to be paired with Charlotte Flair in WWE?
The women's wrestling star recently sat down for an in-depth one-on-one interview with Sean Ross Sapp from Fightful, where she spoke about originally getting called up to the main roster in WWE, and how the company initially had plans to pair her up with "The Queen."
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where she touches on this particular topic.
"I originally got called up in December 2019. But, it was kind of a weird call up. It was a miscommunication, maybe, between NXT and the main roster. I was called up, but I wasn’t, but I was, but I wasn’t. Then I was on TV at NXT, which I was so happy about. Obviously I want to be called up, but nobody had made it official. So, to be called to TV was awesome. Then Triple H pulled me aside in May of 2020, right before the pandemic, or right around that time, because we had just done a tag match. Charlotte and I against Rhea and Io and that was the day I got officially called up.
"I was just starting to get a little momentum. So, I actually didn’t hear anything. Funny enough when I was out there at the very end of the match I heard—Charlotte raised my hand and said something. Said something like, ‘She’s gonna be next,’ or something along the lines that made me think that I was either going to be partnered with her or I was gonna be her protégé. Then I heard rumblings of that in the weeks after that I was going to be—I don’t want to say the next Charlotte, but coming up behind her with her as my mentor. Which is amazing. I don’t know that you can get a better spot than that. Then kind of radio silence until the next storyline that I heard about. I heard about a lot of storylines."
