Chelsea Green nearly stepped away from wrestling altogether.

Green there were times early in her career that the thought of giving up in-ring competition did enter her head
No, but I will say the injuries have definitely made me second-guess it. I think I broke my nose in the ring on week three, which also led me to have cheek fractures. And then I broke my collarbone in India on my first kind of tour away from home. I was in Japan, got sent to India, I broke it live on a show in front of about 70,000 people. And then from there, obviously the WWE Universe knows about my, my little wrist that just kept breaking.
So those are the only moments that really make me question, you know, my longevity and, and what do I want out of this in terms of, I want to be able to hold my kids. You know, I want that for myself. I want to be able to walk and run and play. And so those are the only moments that I’ve sat in bed thinking, what the heck did I get myself into?
