TNA held a One Night Only pay-per-view (PPV) last night and said event featured a Knockouts Gauntlet match to crown a number one contender to the Knockouts title. It's essentially a Royal Rumble, for those who may not be familiar with how TNA uses "Gauntlet."
During the course of the match, Chelsea Green made her debut, as she was celebrating on Twitter after:

What's great about this is Green was introduced to us on television in an angle for WWE where she played a woman named Megan Miller, a physical therapist for Daniel Bryan who tried to ruin his marriage with Brie Bella. It was a ridiculously stupid angle and a nod to the Claire Lynch angle TNA ran trying to ruin AJ Styles. Green, of course, kind of looks like the actress who played Lynch and her acting is almost as bad.
Which is why it's amazing that Green is now in TNA.
What's more, no different than Lynch before her, she's getting blasted in reviews.
All kinds of awful. This could easily win worst match of 2016. This is a TNA gauntlet which means Royal Rumble until the last two and then it's like a singles match. In order, it started Madison Rayne vs. Jade which was so bad. Next was Rebel, and she can do a few athletic things but she's so green. Next was Chelsea Green from Tough Enough, who didn't look good. Marti Bell was next. Deonna Purrazzo was next, one day after being on NXT. She was the best worker in this match, except for maybe Kong.
Someone called "Chelsea" enters this match and clearly has no fucking clue what's happening in here. Holy shit there is some AWFUL wrestling in this match. Comes down to Kong, Jade, and Madison Rayne. Kong wins, beating Rayne last.
What a time to be alive.
