Chelsea Green has discussed what she feels has been the best moment of her career so far, and it wasn’t her fourteen-second stint in the women’s Royal Rumble.
Green was part of the acclaimed ‘All In’ event which became a precursor to AEW. The biggest independent show in the United States in 25 years saw some of the biggest names from the indy scene, ROH, NJPW, and IMPACT come together for the sold-out show at the Sears Center in Chicago.
On the night Chelsea Green faced Tessa Blanchard, Madison Rayne, and Dr. Britt Baker DMD in a four-way match. Speaking on The Wrestling Perspective podcast, Green detailed the one thing she knew she wanted from the match.
“Going into the match, all I wanted to get in (was the Canadian Destroyer). I remember telling the girls that. We all wrote lists of things — maybe we were only going to get ten minutes — the one thing I really wanted to do and knew I could do well. I’m not really a move gal, I never have been, but the girls respected that I wanted to do [the Canadian Destroyer].”
“We got everyone’s stuff in and I felt like it was the perfect move — we didn’t know who was going to win until maybe an hour or two before the match and at that point, we had just come up with everything. That was the finishing move. It doesn’t get any higher than a Canadian Destroyer. Selfishly, I knew that had to be the finish or right before the finish. I think I got it totally right. There was no higher point in that match and everyone stood up after the Canadian Destroyer. The best thing I’ve ever done in my career was that moment. It was way better than my 14 seconds in the Royal Rumble.”
Chelsea Green has previously stated that she is the only one to have been granted permission to use the Canadian Destroyer by the moves innovator, Petey Williams.
Green’s short stint in the Royal Rumble came in 2020. Green was able to dispatch fellow NXT star, Dakota Kai, before being quickly eliminated by Alexa Bliss.
