Chelsea Green, who started her “50 Shades of Green” podcast after parting ways with WWE back in April this year, has been forced to change the name of the podcast after receiving a Cease & Desist order.
Although Chelsea Green did not disclose from where she received the Cease & Desist order for the name of her podcast, it is understood that the name is related to the highly popularized “Fifty Shades of Grey” book, which was later adapted into a movie as well.
However, it is yet not confirmed that the name clash with the book/movie is indeed the reason behind Green’s decision to change the name of her podcast, as the former WWE superstar even filed to trademark the podcast name back on 21st April, along with merchandise and several other entertainment uses.
Green with Envy: Chelsea Green changes her podcast name
After she took it to social media to reveal the Cease & Desist order to the public, Chelsea Green now changed her podcast name to the “Green with Envy” show, which can be streamed on Apple podcasts.
Before changing the name, Green posted on the official Twitter handle of her podcast that “Oh boy do I have some tea for you all…”, and then unveiled the new name, along with confirming about the Cease and Desist.
Later, on her own Twitter handle, Green wrote about the same, along with sharing about the new podcast name and logo once again, but did not comment any further on the matter.
“Have you really made it if you haven’t been hit with a Cease & Desist?” the 30-year-old tweeted, while following up with, “as if I haven’t had a hard enough month but it’s all good, it gives me more sh*t to talk on next weeks episode of 50 shades… oops I mean @GreenWEnvyPod”
A former independent circuit wrestler, Chelsea Green was known as “Laurel Van Ness” during her stint with Impact Wrestling, where she became the Impact Knockouts Champion and was called “Reklusa” in Lucha Underground.

Green debuted on SmackDown on 13th November last year, taking part alongside t Liv Morgan, Natalya, and Tamina in a fatal four-way match to qualify for the Survivor Series, which Morgan had won after Green broke her wrist. Following months of inactivity, Green was released by WWE on 15th April this year, although she had penned a three-year deal with the company in November last year.
