0

Both Chelsea Green and former independent name ACH made their WWE NXT television debuts at Wednesday night’s Full Sail University taping.

Green, previously known as Laurel Van Ness, is a former Knockouts Champion who worked the Fatal 4-Way match at ALL IN last September. She began working at the WWE Performance Center shortly after that, and has been working live events ever since.

As reported, Green suffered a broken wrist in her television debut, which will unfortunately require surgery. She did pick up the victory over Jessie in her first match, which should be airing on next week’s episode unless they taped segments out of order.

ACH first rose to popularity during his time with Ring of Honor, signing a full-time contract with the promotion in 2013. That would later open the door to him working in New Japan Pro-Wrestling. He competed in the 2017 and 2018 Best of the Super Juniors tournaments, while also becoming a mainstay for the Chicago independent promotion AAW.

ACH just made his debut working under his real name, Albert Hardie, Jr., at this past weekend’s WWE NXT live events on the Florida circuit, and debuted at Wednesday night’s television taping in a losing effort to Humberto Carrillo.
