On April 15, 2021, WWE released several performers exactly one year after "Black Wednesday" at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Three of those released were Chelsea Green, Mojo Rawley, and Tucker.
While all three are currently awaiting their 90-day grace period to end, they already have bookings for when they can work again.
Both Chelsea Green and Mojo Rawley will be working with RDP Promotions, a meet and greet promotional company. Meanwhile, Tucker will be doing a virtual singing with Sorrentino Promotions and Ultimate Promotionz.
On June 5, Mojo Rawley will be in Queens, NY, at The Wrestling Universe from 11am to 1pm. On June 6, Mojo will appear in Albany, NY, at Heroes Hideout from 11 am to 1pm. Jillian Hall will also be at both appearances.
On Saturday, July 17, Chelsea Green will appear at The Wrestling Universe in Queens, NY, from 11am to 1pm. Green will also appear at Heroes Hideout in Albany, NY, on July 18, from 11am to 1pm.
Tucker will be at The Wrestling Universe in Queens, NY, on July 31 with promoter Chris Salvatore. He will also be doing a virtual signing with Sorrentino Promotions and Ultimate Promotions on July 31 on Facebook at 8pm.
These former WWE stars are wasting no time getting back to work. If you're in Queens or Albany, make sure to check out the signings.
Three former WWE stars will feature at the events
Chelsea Green signed with WWE in August 2018. While still in NXT, Green made her WWE RAW debut on December 23, 2019, when she faced Charlotte Flair.
She also participated in the 2020 Women's Royal Rumble, entering the match as No. 13. Green made her SmackDown debut on November 13 in a fatal four-way qualifying match for a Women's Survivor Series team spot.
Mojo Rawley signed with WWE in 2012. In 2015, Mojo teamed with Zack Ryder (now known as Matt Cardona) on NXT and the main roster. He would eventually win the Andre The Giant Memorial Battle Royal and become a seven-time WWE 24/7 Champion.
Rawley won his seventh 24/7 title at WrestleMania 36 on the first night before losing it to his friend, NFL Tampa Bay Buccaneers star Rob Gronkowski. Mojo's last match on WWE TV was on the June 19, 2020, edition of SmackDown against Shorty G.
Tucker originally signed with WWE after college in 2013. Heavy Machinery made waves in NXT before Tucker and Otis were called up to the main roster. Tucker would eventually turn heel on Otis and hold the WWE 24/7 Championship once before being let go.
