WWE star Chelsea Green has confirmed that she was signed to WWE for months before making her return earlier this year.
Green made her WWE in-ring comeback in January’s 2023 Royal Rumble match, a bout she was eliminated from in a matter of seconds.
While her return on this occasion was a surprise, it had been reported in November 2022 that WWE had expressed serious interest in rehiring Green.
Speaking on Out of Character, Green noted that she was waiting to find out her return date for months.
Discussing her comeback, Green said:
“I loved it. I was waiting to find out when my surprise return would be for months. So for me, the Royal Rumble was perfect.
“It’s just a matter of like, when’s the perfect opportunity to put her in? I think it’s just like, let’s figure out a way to surprise people. Maybe they know that it’s going to be the Royal Rumble, but how? They’re never going to know, so I just thought it was perfect.”
“The first month was great. I was so busy before signing to WWE that I was still in this place of trying to get the laundry done, trying to get the dishes done, trying to get my house figured out, and you know, just keep up with life.
“So the first month I was like, ‘This is great. I’m getting paid. I know they’re gonna bring me back and I’m able to just think about what I want to do when I go back while also getting my life together.’
“Then the second month rolled around and I’m like, ‘Okay, surely this is the month. I’m gonna make my comeback. Now I kind of know what I’m going to be or who I want to be and the gear I want to wear.’
“Then by month three, I’m like, ‘Okay, what the hell is going on? I need to debut’ and then you start getting antsy.”
Explaining how her return came to be, Green noted that she messaged Triple H directly:
“I texted him (Triple H), and I said, ‘I want my job back’, and he said, ‘Okay, call me’, and I was shocked.
“I want to go back to WWE. My story is not finished. He said on that phone call, ‘I absolutely would love to have your back. Just tell me when’s a good time for you to start.’
“At the end of the day, why are we embarrassed to ask for things? I will never understand that. I have asked to work for WWE probably 100 times and I am not embarrassed about that one bit.
“I have my dream job. I’m doing exactly what I want. I get to help give my family what they want. I get to feed my amazing animals and live in Florida.
“Why would I be embarrassed that I had to ask somebody for that, that I got it. I have no problem asking for it now just like asking on Tough Enough, and I had no problem asking for my very first tryout in 2014.
“When they didn’t give it to me, you best believe I asked for it eight more times until they gave me that damn tryout.”
