Green is excited to be a part of international WWE events. 

After four months, Chelsea Green’s reign as WWE Women’s Tag Team Champion came to an end. Green and her partner Piper Niven lost the titles to Kayden Carter and Katana Chance on the 12/18 Monday Night Raw. 

Green is still looking forward to the future and expressed that as she was being interviewed by Spencer Love of Love Wrestling. She said she is most excited about qualifying for Money in the Bank. The 2023 installment of the Premium Live Event emanated from London, England. Green shared that she was landlocked and could not leave the USA. 

The only non-USA WWE event that Green wrestled at in 2023 was at a Quebec City, Canada show in August. Over the summer, Fightful Select reported that Green was unable to be at Money in the Bank due to visa issues. 

But I think what I’m most excited for is to attempt to qualify for Money in the Bank. Last year, unfortunately, I was landlocked so I wasn’t able to get out of the country so, being in Money in the Bank would be amazing but being in Elimination Chamber in Australia would also be really amazing. Being able to leave the country this year, travel with WWE, meet my fans and get back to Australia because I used to live there so… I mean honestly, I go could on because I’m so excited that we’re bringing WWE to Paris and to parts of Germany. It’s just a really exciting year I think and I think this year will be the year that my suitcase is permanently packed. 

In theory, I’m not supposed to leave still but I ended up getting an exemption to be able to leave the country for work. But I was landlocked for over a year. 

Earlier in the conversation, she dove into the partners she’s had in WWE such as Carmella, Sonya Deville and now Piper. She thinks Piper was the easiest to find a groove with because of their history. They lived with one another in Japan while working dates for STARDOM. 

Well even before those two (Sonya Deville & Piper Niven), I had Carmella before she (had her baby) so, that was an experience in itself. It was very much like a little mean girl clique. Two very aesthetically-pleasing characters and then I went on to Sonya where we really didn’t know how we’d fit together. We knew we had to make it work. We just didn’t know how and I think at the end of the day, that ended up being what bonded us was the fact that our history and the fact that we knew we had to make this work because this is our dream and then, moving on from that after Sonya was injured which was so heartbreaking, definitely for her but also for me because I had grown so close to her and she was kind of my comfort blanket at work at this new job. Then moving on and not knowing who I was gonna be with. When they said I was gonna be with Piper, what a lot of people don’t know is I actually lived in Japan with Piper. We wrestled for STARDOM together so we did have a history, we already had a friendship so that was actually out of the three, probably the easiest one to slip into. However, we are not the same wrestler, we are not the same person so that is something that you have seen day in and day out in the ring; us trying to work on and I mean, even in Des Moines, Iowa, we were not on the same page. We may have lost the titles but it doesn’t mean we’re not gonna get them back, and you know, who knows, maybe going into this year’s Royal Rumble, I now have some backup in Piper. That might play into something in there. I don’t know, depending on what number we are.

Green and Niven got a rematch for the titles at WWE’s Madison Square Garden house show. To read the results from that event, head over to this link.

In November, WWE Intercontinental Champion GUNTHER revealed that he’s not allowed to leave the USA for six months due to strict residency regulations.
