10 AEW & ALL IN Wrestlers Who Later Joined WWE



Chelsea Green made her WWE debut in an on-screen role as Daniel Bryan’s supposed mistress, before competing in the 2015 Tough Enough, finishing fourth. She then most famously worked in IMPACT under the name Laurel Van Ness, evolving from a bratty and demanding bride to a maniacal, scorned lunatic with a serious lipstick problem. She would eventually go on to win the Impact Knockout Championship, before departing from the company in 2018. After a brief spell in Lucha Underground, Chelsea appeared at 2018’s ‘All In’ event in a four-corner survival match with Dr. Britt Baker, Madison Rayne, and the match winner, Tessa Blanchard. Later that year, Greene was signed to a contract at NXT, performing for the black and gold brand from 2018 until 2020. She began several runs on the main roster which were sadly cut short by injuries, leading her to her eventual release in April 2021.
