WWE originally trademarked Green's name in November of 2020 when she signed a new deal with the company upon her call-up to the main roster. But due to an injury and subsequent inactivity, Green was released this past April.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful Select, WWE reached out to Chelsea Green this evening to inform her that they were releasing the trademark claim so that she can use her name going forward.

Sapp reached out to Chelsea Green to verify the information, and she confirmed the report.
Green stated that she will share more information about the trademark situation on this week's episode of her Green With Envy podcast, which you can listen to by clicking here.
Chelsea Green is currently on a career resurgence in the professional wrestling industry. She currently works for multiple wrestling companies, including NWA and IMPACT Wrestling. She teamed up with her fiancé, Matt Cardona in her return to IMPACT Wrestling as part of the Homecoming King & Queen Tournament.
With the trademark legal battle with WWE ending, Green can now focus on her in-ring career instead of worrying about the rights to her given birth name.
