All In was a historic event in the Sears Centre that started with a $1 bet. The bet was that a non-WWE show couldn’t sellout a 10,000 arena. Cody Rhodes and company took that bet and it sparked a wave of support that eventually became AEW. WWE Superstars were warned in advance to stay away.

Chelsea Green made her debut on Friday Night Smackdown back in November of last year and was set to have a great run on the blue brand. Unfortunately for her, she suffered a wrist injury early on in the match and was on the shelf for months. Chelsea Green was one of several Superstars released by WWE earlier in the year as part of the COVID-19 budget cuts. Many fans felt she was not utilized well in WWE and wanted her to join a promotion where Green would be appreciated.

Chelsea Green was also part of the historic ALL In pay-per-view that took place in 2018, where she competed in a fatal four-way match against Tessa Blanchard, Madison Rayne and current AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker.

While speaking on her Green With Envy podcast, Chelsea Green revealed that she had actually already signed with WWE prior to appearing at ALL In. She added that she wished Matt Cardona was at the event but he couldn’t due to being signed to WWE.

She also added that WWE prevented their talents from attending ALL In due to a mandate from WWE talent relations.

“After All In, you think there would’ve been a huge after party or something but there really wasn’t. We all kind of hung around backstage for a bit, hugged each other, I don’t know, shared in this crazy, once in a life time experience. But we didn’t really party. The top guys went out for dinner and I went back to my hotel room and ordered Uber Eats and hung out, which is a perfect night for me. So I sat in my room, ate my Uber Eats, read Twitter and went to bed.

I will say that I really wish Matt had been able to go. Every one at WWE who had a spouse or a partner that was on All In got a text the week or two out from talent relations at WWE, saying they were not allowed to be at All In. So originally, of course, Matt and people like Deonna and Adam Cole, so many people were going to be at All In, just backstage watching us. And when they sent that text, I mean, it was way too risky for any of them to be there, especially after being told not to. It was such a bummer, but it still feels like yesterday when I came back from my match to a hundred texts from Matt saying how awesome it was. I actually could cry thinking about it all.”

Chelsea Green has competed in Impact Wrestling and NWA since her release from WWE and has been having a great time wherever she has worked.
