Let it go? WWE is a big wrestling company and that means they are going to have a lot of things going on at the same time. This can be both a good and a bad situation, as sometimes one side does not quite know what the other side is doing. Hopefully that was the case with a recent situation, which has since been resolved with the most logical option possible.

Last week, news broke that WWE was attempting to trademark the name “Chelsea Green”, which is the real name of Chelsea Green, the wrestler released by WWE in June. According to Fightful Select, WWE contacted Green after she tweeted about it over the weekend and have dropped the claim. As a result, Green is free to use her name anywhere she likes. Green has appeared in both Ring of Honor and Impact Wrestling.

Green is a talented star. Check out what she can do under her own name:

Opinion: For the sake of my own sanity, I’m going to assume that this is the legal department not knowing what is going on with the rapid fire roster moves. Owning names, even real names, of current wrestlers is one thing but trademarking the name of a wrestler released earlier this year (who they never did much with in the first place) seems too petty even for WWE standards.

Did WWE do this on purpose? Where will Green wind up? Let us know in the comments below.
