What’s the story?

Laurel Van Ness recently publicized the fact that her contract with Impact Wrestling is valid until June.

Resultantly, the belief is that Impact Wrestling management have refused to grant Van Ness her release from the promotion.

In case you didn’t know…

Laurel Van Ness aka Chelsea Green is considered to be one of the top young prospects in professional wrestling today.

Van Ness rose to prominence in 2017 with her ‘Crazy Bride’ gimmick in Impact Wrestling, and is the reigning Knockouts Champion. 

The heart of the matter

Per the vast majority of professional wrestling industry experts, Laurel Van Ness reportedly asked to be released from Impact Wrestling after winning the Knockouts Championship during a recent set of tapings—something that is yet to be granted to the Canadian performer.

Although Van Ness has refrained from according significant attention to banter regarding her desire to depart from the promotion, she did provide a few hints pertaining to the same; revealing that her current deal with Impact Wrestling runs until June of 2018.

Considering the aforementioned fact, experts believe that Impact Wrestling management have indeed refused to grant Van Ness her release from the company.

What’s next?

Laurel Van Ness is presently the reigning, undisputed Knockouts Champion and one of Impact Wrestling’s top female stars today.

Nevertheless, the 26-year-old is expected to return to the WWE sooner rather than later—an organization where she’s best known for her role as Daniel Bryan’s ‘physical therapist’ during a Brie Bella vs. Stephanie McMahon storyline a few years ago.

Author’s take

Laurel Van Ness is a criminally underrated talent and exceptionally intelligent performer.

Impact Wrestling has been going through a rough phase over the past few years and has fallen even further throughout 2017. Here’s hoping the promotion returns to its glory days.

In reference to the same, it’d be nice to see Van Ness get the release she’s been asking for, rather than having to work in a company she doesn’t intend to.
