Chelsea Green Says She Was Happy With Her WWE Tryout, Talks New Film Role


During a recent interview with The Orlando Sentinel, Chelsea Green commented on her recent WWE tryout, her role in the new film Red Eye and more. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On her role in the film Red Eye: “I have a couple of speaking scenes, then a fight scene stunt role. On camera, it will look like I’m fighting myself – I fought a stunt double who looked like me. It was wild. In wrestling, I don’t consider it acting because it’s improv. A lot of people gave me props for my acting ability when I didn’t really think I deserved it. … But I auditioned for this role, and it was awesome to be chosen through that process. A lot of times in wrestling, you get booked because of your name or where you’ve been, and this wasn’t like that. I’m feeding my soul with things other than wrestling. I love wrestling, but now wrestling is a job, it’s my livelihood. Sometimes the job takes over and you forget to have fun and you forget to be creative and try new things. When I get opportunities like this, it’s a whole different experience and I have to take advantage of it.”

On the difference between this year’s WWE tryout and the one she had back in 2015: “That’s why I went in there so confident. I’m going to give it my all, but I’m also going to know my worth, know that I have options, and that’s the best feeling in the world…This was grueling in a different way. It included skill, agility, mental toughness, and things you really need to be a wrestler. I like that change.”

On being happy with her most recent WWE tryout: “I don’t know if anyone can say, oh, I know I’m going to get signed. You don’t know what they’re looking for. You might have excelled in-ring but you might not have excelled at promos. It’s about giving it 110 percent, and then having NXT want you in their family. If they don’t want me, I am still happy with the performance that I gave. That’s all you can ask for.”
