Today I had the opportunity to wrestle for the first time at Full Sail for @wwenxt after years of dreaming of it! Wow, it was everything I had imagined it would be!!! Of course, with this job comes occupational hazards. Unfortunately, I broke my wrist mid-match & will require surgery first thing tomorrow morning. It sucks. I’m upset, I’m angry, I’m sore... but I’ll be back soon. This is just a tiny bump in the road to many goals I have set for 2019! 💙💙💙
Despite the setback, Green – who joined the WWE Performance Center last October – remained upbeat about her recovery.
“This is just a tiny bump in the road to many goals I have set for 2019!” she wrote.
Green has received an outpouring of support from other Superstars on Twitter, from Tegan Nox and Deonna Purrazzo to Kairi Sane and Killer Kelly. Her boyfriend, Raw Superstar Zack Ryder, also tweeted photos of Green at a medical facility and shared his admiration for her being able to finish her match despite the injury.
