WWE has reportedly relinquished the rights to their trademark of Chelsea Green’s name. Thereby, the former NXT star should be able to use it in her post-WWE ventures.

It was noted that WWE originally trademarked Green’s name in November of 2020 when she signed a new deal with the company upon her call-up to the main roster. However, an unfortunate injury shortened her stint in WWE and resulted in inactivity. Green was eventually released this past April.

According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, WWE reached out to Chelsea Green to inform her that they were releasing the trademark claim so that she can use her name in the future.

Sapp had then reached out to Chelsea Green to verify the information, and she confirmed the report.

She previously took to her Twitter account and spoke about the situation. Green stated that she will share more information about the trademark situation on this week’s episode of her Green With Envy podcast.

Green wrote: “I never thought I’d be in a legal battle for my BIRTH GIVEN name… Going to discuss it on tomorrow’s episode of @GreenWEnvyPod”

Chelsea Green has made a great comeback to in-ring competition. She currently works for multiple wrestling companies, including NWA and IMPACT Wrestling. She had teamed up with her fiancé, Matt Cardona in her return to IMPACT Wrestling as part of the Homecoming King & Queen Tournament.

Green had made her surprise debut at Ring of Honor (ROH) during Best in the World as she was introduced by Lenny Leonard and Maria Kanellis-Bennett. She was booked to participate to crown the inaugural ROH Women’s World Champion.

However, as she had suffered an injury, she was not cleared to compete. She went on to provide commentary during the first round of the tournament. At Slammiversary, Green made her return to Impact Wrestling under her real name when she teamed Cardona to defeat Brian Myers and Tenille Dashwood.
