As we reported back in November, Chelsea Green aka Laurel Van Ness had requested her release from IMPACT Wrestling.
Last night she took to her Twitter account to inform everyone that she had finished with IMPACT at these sets of tapings in Orlando, Florida that saw her drop the Knockouts title and was granted her release from the company.

Green signed with IMPACT in June of 2016 after wrestling several matches for the company including a match against Jade. In late 2016, Van Ness formed an on-screen relationship with Braxton Sutter. On February 23, 2017, the two were set to marry until Van Ness got rejected by Sutter during their wedding when he professed that he was in love with Allie, which in turn turned the rich heiress into the drunken hot mess Laurel that we all know well.
After Gail Kim retired and the Knockouts Championship was declared vacant, Van Ness defeated Rosemary in the finals of the knockouts tournament which included KC Spinelli, Sienna, Madison Rayne, and others to become the new Knockouts Champion.
