In an update on IMPACT Wrestling knockout Laurel Van Ness’ (Chelsea Green) status with the company, after reports made the rounds last week that she has requested her release from IMPACT Wrestling, a report from Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter notes that Green did indeed request her release and did so, just hours after she captured the Knockouts Championship at the recent set of tapings in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

The report notes that the company are currently airing the tournament on POP TV over the next several weeks and are said to be really upset with her request, mostly due to the fact that she made the request after she won the Knockouts Championship and the company had already taped weeks of television about the tournament. The expectation is that Van Ness will work the tapings next month in Orlando, where she will drop the belt, unless plans change and that she will then be free to work for any other company.
