2018’s All In show in Chicago is widely regarded as one of the most influential professional wrestling shows in the history of the sport. Not only was the event the catalyst for the All Elite Wrestling promotion, but featured a night of unique pro wrestling matchups the likes of which have yet to be seen again. One of the highlights of the evening’s card was a fatal four-way matchup featuring Madison Rayne, Britt Baker, Tessa Blanchard and Chelsea Green.
Green recently joined me to discuss her appearance at the legendary All In show in Chicago, as well as the potential of running her own show.
Wrestling at All In:
“To this day, that is my favourite pro wrestling experience. It’s my favourite match, it’s my favourite crowd. It’s my favourite – it was literally the best day of my life, I’m not even joking. I was so thankful to get that opportunity.”
“I never wanted to ask Cody to be in All In. First of all, he’s really good friends with my fiancé, and so I knew that was going to put him in a really weird position. I never wanted in my career for anyone to feel like they had to give me something, or that they would feel bad if they didn’t give me something. I texted him. I would say they announced All In, I texted him a couple weeks later, and I just said ‘hey, I just wanted to let you know, of course, I’m sure everyone’s texting you, but I would love that opportunity, and anything that I can do to prove to you that I should be in one of those matches, I’m willing to do.’ It was weird, because he’s a friend, and I was kind of having to talk to him like a boss. It was a little weird, but I’m so glad I did. He didn’t even ask me, he just announced that I was in. All of us girls didn’t know what the match was going to be or anything, we were just so happy to be chosen and I feel like that day was perfect. Everything just came together so well, and even though we were so stressed and there was so much anxiety, we knew this was our opportunity to show the world that there are indie wrestlers out there who deserve the spotlight that WWE is given. Everything just came together, and I seriously could have cried when it was all finished.”
Running her own show and what she would have main-event:
“I guess the main event would probably be my fiancé versus Cody. I’d love, love, love, love, LOVE to see that. I really just want to see Matt wrestling in a singles match. Seriously, I’ve only seen that a few times. I really haven’t seen him wrestle much.”
“I don’t know what the name would be, but it would definitely a play on words, like the word Green.”
