In the latest episode of SmackDown, Liv Morgan won a Fatal 4-Way by winning a spot on Survivor Series Team SmackDown, joining Bianca Belair and her tag teammate Ruby Riott. The other contenders in this match were Natalya, Tamina and Chelsea Green, who surprisingly made her debut on the WWE main roster.
However, Chelsea Green's evening did not go as hoped as the athlete quickly disappeared from the camera beam after a dropkick on the apron. Subsequently, the McMahon-owned company announced through its official website that Chelsea, during the contest, suffered a wrist injury that will require surgery and that for this reason she left the match much earlier than necessary.
New details are emerging these days about the circumstances of his SmackDown debut and the original plans for the conclusion of the match. As already reported, the latest episode of SmackDown has undergone several changes a few hours before the live, with the script that seems to have been completely changed.
Liv Morgan was originally supposed to qualify for Survivor Series by winning a Triple Threat Match, but plans were revisited when the creative team proposed the inclusion of Chelsea Green, a longtime NXT athlete parked in limbo between the black-yellow show and the main roster.
Living in Florida, near the WWE ThunderDome, Chelsea Green would therefore have reached the famous arena during the day to take part in the episode with very few hours of preparation.
Backstage news on Chelsea Green
According to Wrestling Observer testimonies, Chelsea Green was supposed to win the contest and get a ticket for the Survivor Series team match, but the wrist injury prevented the athlete from completing the contest and the decision on the outcome.
of the match was quickly modified by granting the victory to Liv Morgan, who is the very first designated winner. In light of the SmackDown events, Chelsea Green will not be able to take part in Survivor Series as she will have to undergo an operation for her broken wrist.
The athlete has not appeared on TV since he decided to leave the Robert Stone Brand at NXT and there has been talk of his possible arrival on Raw or SmackDown for some time, since the days of Paul Heyman (his estimator) in the role of Executive Producer.
WWE made waves last week with the firing of Zelina Vega, seemingly over her desire to continue with her Twitch channel and other third-party revenue streams. Miro, who found success on Twitch after his WWE departure, says Vega made the move that will make her happiest.
"She'll be fine. When things like this happen, it's always somebody's loss," Miro said on his Twitch. "What matters is...she wanted to continue doing Twitch and now she can. So, that's the best decision and best move for her. So, I'm happy for her."
