Posted By James Walsh on 02/08/24

Chelsea Green recently appeared as a guest on the ďINSIGHT with Chris Van VlietĒ podcast for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, one-half of the former Undisputed WWE Womenís Tag-Team Champions spoke about the possibility of her husband, Matt Cardona, formerly known as Zack Ryder in WWE, returning to the company.

ďI would also love to know that, Iím waiting,Ē she said. ďI am patiently waiting. Because not that I want to be partnered up with him in WWE. That would be great. I think we could have an amazing mixed match, tag team division, whatever it is. But I donít know. I donít know why, I would love to know why. I would love to be a fly on the wall of kind of like the meetings of the top guys in WWE. But I do feel like in my heart of hearts, itís only a matter of time, it feels crazy that he wouldnít be.Ē

She also shared her thoughts on the unique custom ring entrance that Samantha Irvin would give her on Monday Night Raw, with the dramatic pronunciation of her name.

ďI loved it,Ē Green admitted. ďI loved it because to me it adds a little something. We see over and over again, men in wrestling, the fans latch on to something whether itís Sethís thing, Shinsukeís thing, Romanís thing, they have a punch line, a song a moment a movement, like they latch on to that with men. And itís really hard as women to get men to latch on to that. For a woman itís hard. Itís kind of a hard thing because Iím going shh, are they going to do that? Are they? I donít know. Maybe not. But that announcement is what they latched on to. Yeah, I love that. Perfect. Thatís what I want. I want people to have something thatís like oh Chelsea Green, that announcement, or whatever. It is just one more thing for them to enjoy.Ē


Green also confirmed during the show that she has, in fact, finally received her green card and the headaches this issue has caused her in the past.

ďIíve said this to you before, and I say to everyone, like the weight I felt lifted off me when I opened that piece of mail that said I was approved,Ē she said. ďNobody except a Canadian in America getting our green card will understand that feeling. Especially because a lot of people during the pandemic when I was released from WWE were like, Oh, youíre good. Youíre married. Youíre with Matt, whatever. Like, no, thatís not how it works, you donít just get a green card. You donít just magically get to work in this country because you are with somebody. So I was still struggling all the way up until I got rehired last year by WWE. I was still on my fourth visa. I was spending five grand at a time for these visas and trying to find someone to sponsor me to get the visa.Ē

Finally, Piper Nivenís tag-team partner on Monday Night Raw addressed the fact that her win/loss record in WWE hasnít been the best, despite championship success.

ďSometimes I think that weíre all so caught up in winning and Iím just not,Ē she said. ďIíve been doing this 10 years. Itís not about winning. Whatís it about? Itís about making people feel a certain way. And when I became The Hot Mess in Impact thatís when I realized, thatís when the light bulb like frigginí flashed in my face, like oh wow, people donít care. People donít care that I was cool and winning. They donít care that I won the championship. They care that I turn crazy, they care that I feel like their crazy best friend. I feel like their crazy ex-girlfriend. John Mayer sat in front of me at All In and said, Oh my God, you remind me of a lot of people I dated like thatís the feeling I want you to feel with a character. I donít need you to go home and be like wow, sheís a real winner.Ē
