Chelsea Green is undergoing surgery for the injury she suffered during her SmackDown debut.

Green debuted on SmackDown last night but suffered a broken left wrist while facing Liv Morgan, Tamina, and Natalya in a fatal four-way Survivor Series qualifying match. Morgan pinned Tamina to get the win after Green was injured early on and plans for the match had to be adjusted.

In a tweet posted this morning, Green announced that she was heading into surgery: "Just like the rest of my career, I couldn’t have an easy debut! LOL, that just wouldn’t be fit for my wild journey. I’m headed into surgery now. I am beyond devastated but so excited to be a part of @WWE team SmackDown, when I get back!"

Green's fiance Matt Cardona (formerly known as Zack Ryder in WWE) posted on Instagram last night: "Welp...tonight was bittersweet. I’ve seen her get told no by WWE...to getting hired...to doing nothing in NXT...to finally get a NXT match but breaking her wrist during it...to getting surgery, rehabbing, coming back and still doing nothing...to getting 'called up'...to going back to NXT...to getting 'called up' again...to debuting on Raw but it was a taped episode and segment was cut...to doing nothing...to finally debuting on SmackDown tonight...but breaking her wrist and needing surgery again! JESUS! But @chelseaagreen is a fighter and she will come back again and be the STAR that she is destined to be. I love you."

Last night was Green's first match since the May 27 episode of NXT. She had been set to be called up for months prior to debuting last night.
