Various storylines (2016–2017)

On January 7, 2016, Green made her TNA debut under the ring name Chelsea, losing to Jade. The following night on January 8 at TNA One Night Only: Live!, she wrestled in a #1 contenders gauntlet battle royal match for the TNA Knockouts Championship, entering the ongoing match at number four before being eliminated by Awesome Kong.

On the October 20 episode of Impact Wrestling, Van Ness attacked Allie which lead to a match between the two where Van Ness was victorious. She attacked Allie again the following week, which led to another match between the two on the December 8 episode of Impact Wrestling, Van Ness was defeated.

In late 2016, Van Ness formed an on-screen relationship with Braxton Sutter. On February 23, 2017, the two were set to marry until Van Ness got rejected by Sutter during their wedding when he professed that he was in love with Allie (who is Sutter's legitimate wife). The following week of Impact Wrestling, the Lady Squad quietly disbanded when former leader Maria's contract expired.

Psycho gimmick, Impact Knockouts Champion and departure (2017–2018)

In March, Van Ness started a maniacal gimmick, competing in her trashed wedding dress and make-up, wrestling barefoot and carrying a wine bottle. Grado tried to propose to her on July 27, however he was interrupted by Kongo Kong.

On the August 24 episode of Impact, Van Ness came out all cleaned up, during Grado's deportation farewell address. She then took out a ring, asked Grado if he wanted to marry her and he said yes, establishing herself as a face for the first time in her TNA career. After Grado found out that Van Ness was Canadian however, he called off the wedding on the September 7 episode of Impact. Van Ness began turning heel when she reverted to her psychotic gimmick, which later included going out in the crowd and campaigning for a husband. On November 5, at Bound for Glory, Van Ness cemented herself as a villainess once again when she attacked Grado during his Monster's Ball match against Abyss, only to be on the receiving end of Rosemary's mist.

On the November 30 episode Impact, Van Ness competed in a triple threat match against KC Spinelli and Madison Rayne to determine the contender for the vacant Impact Knockouts Championship, in which she was victorious and advance to the match for the title, at this point she also returned to her normal ring gear leaving the wedding dress but continuing with her psychotic gimmick. On the December 14 episode of Impact, Van Ness defeated Rosemary in the finals to become the new Knockouts Champion. Reportedly, after winning the title, Green asked for her release from Impact Wrestling, but the company turned down to release her with the title. On January 15, 2018, Van Ness was officially released from Impact Wrestling after finishing out the January 2018 tapings, where she lost the championship to Allie. By July 7, Van Ness wrestled her final match at RISE 9: RISE Of The Knockouts in a Tag Team Four Way Elimination Match for the Guardians Of RISE Championship.

Lucha Underground (2018)

Green debuted during the 4th season tapings on February 25, 2018 and was involved in a Fatal 4 Way with Jeremiah Crane (Sami Callihan), Exolicious (Sonny Kiss) and Marty "The Moth" Martinez.
