That’s better, I think? Injuries are one of the few constants in wrestling, but they can also be used as a storyline. Be it in a match or an angle of some kind, a wrestler can fake an injury to advance whatever else they are doing. That can open up some doors for some interesting stories, and now that seems to be the case again, as a star has played off of her own bad luck.
At Sacrifice earlier this month, Impact Wrestling’s Chelsea Green seemed to injure her arm in a match against Deonna Purrazzo. Green’s arm was placed in a cast though she managed to wrestle the following week on television. However, this week Green posted a tweet announcing that the injury was not real and that she had faked the injury to fool “all the marks” and prove that “the internet is f****** useless.”
UPDATED DIRT SHEET REPORT: Chelsea Green shocks the world. Fools all the marks into thinking she broke her arm. Proves the internet is fucking useless.

Opinion: I’m not sure I get this one, as Green’s injury was treated as a storyline in Impact Wrestling, with the referee throwing up the X during the match. So is her point that fans bought into a story that she was supposed to be selling and that she was doing her job properly? What matters is that Green is back in the ring sooner rather than later, and seems to be happy with the whole thing.
What do you think of Green’s rib? What is next for her in Impact Wrestling? Let us know in the comments below.
