The main event of NWA EmPowerrr was the NWA Women’s Invitational Cup. This gauntlet-style match featured 10 women’s wrestlers from the National Wrestling Alliance and companies across the board, each one vying for a major opportunity. To be more specific, whoever won this match would go on to challenge Kamille for the NWA World Women’s Championship at NWA 73 tomorrow night. The competitors involved included Chelsea Green and Kiera Hogan, both of whom started the match. From there, Bianca Carelli, Thunder Kitty, Jennacide, Lady Frost, Debbie Malenko, Jamie Senegal, Masha Slamovich, and Tootie Lynn entered the fray at 2-minute intervals. Following a grueling contest, last eliminating Tootie Lynn, it was Chelsea Green that won the NWA Women’s Invitational Cup, punching her ticket to a Women’s World title match at the NWA’s 73rd anniversary event.

Chelsea Green Wins the NWA Women’s Invitational Cup
Following her NWA Women’s Invitational Cup victory, Chelsea Green embraced Tootie Lynn in the center of the ring, raising her arm after. Afterward, the other women’s wrestlers came to ringside, celebrating with not only the two wrestlers in the ring but each other. Green was then presented with the NWA Women’s Invitational Cup trophy, hoisting it above her head. Even Lynn was able to celebrate with her hometown crowd, including her family in the front row, in St. Louis. With this, NWA EmPowerrr ended with a feel-good moment for those watching in attendance and at home.
Chelsea Green returned to the larger wrestling scene following her release from World Wrestling Entertainment this past April. Before then, she was inactive following a wrist injury. Once she was released, Green made appearances for Ring of Honor and, more prominently, IMPACT Wrestling. It was in IMPACT that Green routinely paired off with real-life fiancé Matt Cardona. Earlier this month, she made her ROH debut at Glory by Honor Night 2, teaming with Willow in a losing effort against Miranda Alize and Rok-C.
