Mia Yim’s was actually confirmed during last night’s Mae Young Classic, when footage was shown of Tripe H congratulating her about the news and she’d been working NXT Live Events since the end of September.
As for Chelsea Green, despite reporting on Chelsea Green’s signing last week, recently Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter disputed the report saying that Green was simply at the PC to train because of her connection via her boyfiend, WWE Superstar Zack Ryder. But today, the PC and Green herself confirmed the initial report.
WE DID IT!!!
