WWE’s massive November 4th releases are impossible to ignore. That doesn’t change the fact that many are still reeling from it.

Chelsea Green, who wrestled in WWE herself, and was released on April 15th, had a few words of wisdom about the releases while speaking on the Green with Envy podcast.

“I’m just going to keep it short and sweet. This past week, more amazing NXT and WWE talent were released. One of them was my girlfriend Kira, who is also going to be in my bridal party. Kira, also known as Taya Valkyrie or Franky Money in NXT, and is also John Morrison’s wife who is in WWE. She is so fu**ing talented. She’s been waiting for this opportunity to be signed by WWE for years.

I’m not going to get into her personal story because that’s her story to tell, but I’m really bummed. I’m disappointed. I think they didn’t give her an opportunity to shine like she really could have. I don’t even know what to say. I just feel awful for the talent that keeps losing their jobs. It’s such a weird time. We’re not out of the pandemic. We’re still dealing with loss of jobs and things like that. It’s really unfortunate to continue to see this happening.”

Ring of Honor is on hiatus. That too is old news, but many are indeed wondering what the future holds for the promotion that dates back to 2002. It was and is the place where many in the industry cut their proverbial teeth on. Many rumors are circulating about ROH and its library. On the ROH library apparently being for sale, she stated:

“I also know that I heard a lot of rumors being thrown around about Ring of Honor trying to sell their library.  For those of you that don’t know what that means, the library is all the previous footage that the company has, which is huge.  A lot of Ring of Honor stars have gone on to do really big things in WWE and AEW. 

After further investigation, I found out they are not shopping out all of the Ring of Honor library.  They are only trying to sell, I think, footage from 2005 on, or maybe 2009 on.  See, now I’ve got my facts wrong.  Either way, the real juicy part of the library would still be owned by Sinclair, who owns Ring of Honor.”

“What I do know is the wrestlers are out looking for new opportunities while also staying positive about the fact that Ring of Honor plans to come back in April, and they do truly plan to come back.  I was speaking to some of the people in the office and that seems to be their legitimate plan to come back, most likely in a different way.”

She spent a considerable amount of time in TNA/Impact, specifically wrestling there from 2016-2018 and returned there shortly after her release from WWE, joining her beau, Matt Cardona. It was in 2021 that she also made appearances for ROH.
