Chelsea Green was on the Green With Envy podcast to speak about Tessa Blanchard and her encounter with her at All In. The event was held in 2018 and was the event that led up to the formation of All Elite Wrestling, which we know and love today.
Green stated that her whole experience of being a part of even was great. “The atmosphere was so positive and so fun,” Green said. “It just felt like everyone was there for the same reason, which obviously we all were.
Everyone, and the fans, were there to prove to ourselves and everybody else that another company could succeed in this wrestling world, other than WWE. And not just succeed, but thrive”.
Chelsea Green Speaks About How All Out Match Was Setup To Push Tessa Blanchard
Green was part of the only all-female match that took place at that event.
She was in a fatal 4-way match that included Tessa Blanchard, Madison Rayne and Britt Baker. According to Green, that match was set up to push Tessa Blanchard further up in the world of professional wrestling. “We all went up the night before to talk about the matches, or the girls did, to talk about our match,” Chelsea Green said.
“I’m not going to get into the specifics, I’m not going to pull the curtain back all the way, but I will say I will never forget. So we didn’t know who was winning the match until the day of All In, till the afternoon actually of All In.
We didn’t even know when we were heading to All In, who was going to win. And Tessa, who was in our match, brought her f*****g Impact Title to the show and tried to come out with it. Now in my mind, it was a way to look better than all of us.
Bringing out a title, being the only person to come to a ring with a title, the fans are obviously going to immediately put you above the rest. But also, I feel like she did that because she knew if she came out with the title, she couldn’t lose that title on the show.
She couldn’t lose that title on a show that wasn’t Impact Wrestling. At that time, there was no way that that could happen. Nowadays the door is open. Anyone can wrestle anywhere and anyone can lose or win in any company at any given time.
It’s wild. But way back when, like a couple years ago, that wouldn’t happen. And that basically would’ve been a way of strong-arming the higher-ups into letting her win. Funny enough, she did still win the match, but we all collectively made sure she didn’t come out with the title. We all kind of came out as equals, thank god”.
