Robbie E & Chelsea Green Attend WWE Tryout

WWE held another round of tryouts at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando and two familiar names were spotted at the tryout. Former Impact Wrestling stars Robbie E and Chelsea Green, also known as Laurel Van Ness, were seen working out with fellow WWE hopefuls this week. Chelsea Green was a contestant on the 2015 season of Tough Enough that featured the Velveteen Dream, Mandy Rose, and Sonya Devile. She is also a former Impact Knockouts Champion and in January, she left Impact and has been featured in Lucha Underground since. Meanwhile, Robbie E is a former TNA television, X Division and two-time Tag Team Champion and left the company in September of last year and has been seen wrestling on the independent scene since his departure.

S.A.M.’s Spiel: Chelsea Green and Robbie E were both accomplished in Impact and it makes sense as to why WWE would give them the opportunity for a tryout. I think Chelsea may have a higher chance at receiving an NXT contract over Robbie because the NXT Women’s Division is going through some changes with the call-ups that have been happening and the reshaping in that division due to that. It would seem they want to have Shayna Baszler be a dominate champion and someone with her experience could be a benefit to that division as a potential challenger or successor. The Men’s Division has become deeper and deeper with each major indy signing and Robbie could have a tougher time getting signed because of that but he could impress WWE officials enough to lead him to getting a contract. We shall see what comes of this and will definitely update if either or both of them get signed.
