Chelsea Green undergoes surgery to repair broken wrist

Chelsea Green, who yesterday broke her wrist during her unfortunate Smackdown debut, underwent surgery today, just hours after the injury took place live on the show.

Green announced the surgery early in the morning in a post on social media, saying that while she’s beyond devastated for what happened, she’s also excited to be part of the Smackdown team when she comes back.

“Just like the rest of my career, I couldn’t have an easy debut! LOL, that just wouldn’t be fit for my wild journey,” Green wrote.

Typical recoveries for a broken wrist go from six weeks to up to four months, depending on how severe the break was.

Her boyfriend, the artist formerly known as Zack Ryder, uploaded a photo standing by her side at a medical facility. Green was still in her wrestling gear as she was getting her vitals checked. Ryder, who now goes by his real name of Matt Cardona, wrote that it was a bittersweet night as he’s seen Chelsea getting shot down multiple times by WWE throughout the years and now that she finally got her debut, she broke her wrist…again. Green also broke her wrist in her first televised NXT match in March 2019 and required surgery. She eventually returned three months later.
