Chelsea Green injured during her WWE SmackDown debut

The former NXT Superstar suffered an unfortunate setback.

Chelsea Green made her official main roster debut Friday night on WWE SmackDown in a Fatal 4-Way match for one of the last remaining spots on the women’s Survivor Series team. Green faced off against Natalya, Tamina, and Liv Mogran, but spent almost no time actually participating in the match. After taking a dropkick from Liv Morgan, Green was knocked off the ring apron and spent the remainder of the match selling on the outside.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly wrestling podcast, PTW!

Well, uh, she wasn’t selling.

Green took to Instagram after SmackDown was over to share an update with fans that included a photo of her in the hospital and two x-ray slides of her wrist.

“Just another twist in my @wwe story tonight! If you wondered where I went after my entrance, here’s your answer… another broken arm. Nothing I haven’t dealt with before! I’ll be back before you know it! [blue heart emoji],” she wrote.

WWE has confirmed that the injury occurred, and is a broken wrist, not a broken arm. The company issued the following statement on WWE.com:

During Friday’s Fatal 4-Way Match for the opportunity to qualify for the SmackDown Women’s Survivor Series team, Chelsea Green suffered a broken left wrist.

Chelsea was taken to a local medical facility for further evaluation.

This is a tough break for Green, she spent three months on the shelf in 2019 after suffering the same exact injury on March 13, 2019 while wrestling her first NXT TV tapings match against Jessi Kamea. Though from her post on Instagram you can see that she isn’t letting it get her down. Big props to the newest SmackDown superstar for keeping an upbeat attitude about her really bad luck.

AIPT wishes Chelsea Green a speedy recovery.
