Chelsea Green Received Natalya's Ring Gear & A Basketball In Her WWE Trash Bag

"I don't know who the f*ck is playing basketball backstage at WWE but somebody is getting their hoops in"

Following their WWE releases, the likes of Mickie James and Chelsea Green received their left behind items from the company in a bin bag with their name on. 

James went on record about how she felt about the situation and it quickly emerged that released female talent had been receiving their belongings in bin bags for years, which led to an outcry from within the industry. 

Triple H, Stephanie McMahon and John Laurinaitis then tweeted apologies and Mark Carrano was fired by the company. 

Since her release, Chelsea Green has started her own podcast '50 Shades of Green' and she revealed what was inside her bin bag on the latest episode. 

"Upon further inspection of the trash bag, I started to realise, 'I'm not really sure what's in this trash bag.' I first pulled out some black boots. Beautiful black boots, but not my black boots. I then pull out a second pair of black boots. Again, beautiful boots, not my boots. Here, we get to the third item. The third item was the most gorgeous little leather shrug with studs, and diamonds, and little flappy things and pink jewels and all sorts of things. Now, if you know women's wrestling, you know that the person who wears black leather with pink is always the same person. That is always going to be Nattie. So I knew right away that the contents of my box were actually Nattie's box," Green stated.

"I continued to go -- I pulled a couple of things out. A lot of it was Nattie's, but I did run into some questionable items. Some cute little skirts, some cute little dresses, and things that kind of looked like maybe Lana's or Liv [Morgan]'s. There was also a basketball. I don't know who the f*ck is playing basketball backstage at WWE but somebody is getting their hoops in.

"So the contents of my box were, in fact, not mine [but many] other females'. So I let them know that and the person, he who shall not be named, because he who shall not be named was let go from WWE, he told me to drop the box off at someone's house. Send the box on its way. I was shook. Because here's the thing, the contents of this box are expensive. Wrestling boots are expensive, gear is expensive, clothing, it's all expensive. I'm not just going to drop it off at somebody's house and hope it gets to Tampa."

Green went on to say that she feels WWE handled the situation "in the best way possible."

"So, with all that being said, I will say I think WWE handled it in the best way possible. We saw Johnny Ace tweet, we saw Stephanie McMahon, Triple H tweeted. I really don't know if they could have done anything else. I think that was the perfect way to handle it. I will also say they didn't stop there. They actually did call each of us to apologise and they sent us flowers. So I thought that was really nice and what else could they do? If they didn't know that this was being done, the only thing you can do is do damage control and Lord knows I know how to do damage control," Green added. 

"With the flowers, I got a little note and the note ended by saying, 'From your WWE family.' As if I didn't have an open wound from being fired, from f**king being canned, they called me their family!? No, it was honestly -- the flowers are beautiful, I'm sitting here staring at the flowers. I really can't talk shit. The flowers are amazing. Probably very expensive too. I do think the way they handled it was proper, perfect. TrashbagGate 2021. Hopefully, it'll never happen again."
