Wrestling careerEdit

Character Championship WrestlingEdit

Impactful debut and Females Title matchesEdit

Chell debuted on CCW XX 5 in a match against the CCW Females Champion Gwen Tennyson after a series of cryptic videos were put out declaring that "YOU CANNOT ESCAPE HELL". Gwen, anxious and annoyed, challenged whoever was responsible for said videos to a Females Championship Match on XX 5 to settle matters face-to-face. As the date approached, the messages grew more cryptic and then read "YOU CANNOT ESC HELL" and eventually "ESC HELL" and "ESCHELL" until finally concluding with "CHELL", revealing the identity of the unknown force responsible for the videos. Chell appeared on XX 5, punishing the Champion Gwen Tennyson and leaving her in a bloody heap, culminating in a Portal Wound on top of an announce table. However, after using steel steps on Tennyson, Chell was disqualified in her first match and Gwen retained her Title. The message had been sent and received nonetheless. The next week, Chell competed against Carmen Sandiego and, once more, got herself disqualified after using Gwen's Championship belt to whack Carmen in the head. Once more, Chell left her opponent lying in the end. On XX 7, Chell competed in a Gauntlet Match against Vicky, Carmen Sandiego and Zoe Payne where the stipulation was that, if she won, she would receive a CCW Females Title shot at CCW Jackpot, making said match a Triple Threat Match as a result. Amid Gwen Tennyson's tried interference, Chell defeated all three of her foes, thus earning her Title Match at Jackpot. Chell came within inches of victory, but Gwen countered a Portal Wound into a pinning combination while using the ropes for leverage and retaining the Females Championship as a result.

Wheatley, Chell's manager, was introduced on CCW XX 7.

Post-Jackpot storylines, interpromotional involvementsEdit

At the FanFiction Wrestling Awards, it was announced that Chell would be a member of Team Anti-Rookie Revolution (Tifa Lockhart, Sora Takenouchi, and Amanda Wells being the three other members of said team) against the Rookie Revolution women (Lightning Farron, Rukia Kuchiki, Angelica Pickles, and Tanya Blake) inside Lethal Lockdown at the company crossover event Best in the World. Chell, being the final member to enter the match, played a role in Team Anti-RR's victory, aiding Wells in delivering Trashed and Scattered to Lightning for the pinfall. Due to this performance and Chell's victory at the 2012 FWAs against Haruhi Suzumiya, Chell was named #1 Contender to the CCW Females Championship by Commissioner James Gordon. On XX 10, Chell and Gwen Tennyson competed in a Race Against Time Challenge to decide who would name the stipulation for their Females Championship Match at the next PPV Meltdown. Chell defeated a then-debuting Lisa Simpson in 11:31, beating Gwen's time of beating Mileena by 3 seconds and thus earning the right to name the stipulation. Chell and her manager Wheatley mutually decided on a Sadistic Madness Match. In said match, there were no disqualifications; the only way to win was by pinfall or submission after one's opponent was bleeding. Chell's first Ozone appearance came at the CCW/UWE Supershow, when she wrestled UWE's Asui Hikaru one-on-one in an Extreme Rules Match, somewhat of a precursor to the Sadistic Madness at Meltdown. Gwen Tennyson was at ringside for this match as well. In the end, Chell and Asui fought in a grueling, memorable match that ended in a double pinfall draw when Asui flipped off of the middle rope while in a Silent But Deadly chokehold, sending herself and Chell through a table in the process. Both women were able to drape arms over one another and the match ended in a double pinfall. After the match, both Asui and Chell stood up and shook hands, signaling their mutual respect.

The stage would then be set for CCW Meltdown between Chell and Gwen Tennyson. At the PPV, Chell suffered severe damage to her right arm, which Gwen targeted throughout the match with a steel chair, barbwire, and steel steps. Chell would fight back with the use of Wheatley and broken glass as well as a barbwire board which Chell Speared Gwen through. Chell would Powerbomb Gwen through an announce table as well as survive three Conchairtos and a Hocus Pocus. The match seemed to be drawing to a close when Chell locked in a Silent But Deadly with her ailing arm wrapped entirely with barbwire to cut away at the throat of the Females Champion. Gwen lost a tremendous amount of blood, as did Chell during this contest, though Gwen seemed to be losing consciousness. Just as it seemed as though she would submit, Gwen revealed a pair of scissors which she used to cut the barbwire off of Chell's arm and stab the arm instead. The scissors would end up stuck in Chell's right arm, inflicting massive nerve damage. Still, Chell fought on and tried the Portal Wound. However, her arm was too numb to hook Gwen up for the move and Gwen took advantage by slicing Chell's arm completely open with the scissors, drawing more blood and cutting through bone. Gwen hit the Alakazam for the pin, retaining her CCW Females Championship. However, Gwen was not able to move after the match had ended. Unconscious, she was carried to the back by her cousin Ben Tennyson and transported to a local hospital. Meanwhile, Chell stood up inside the ring and received thunderous chants of "She's hardcore! She's hardcore!" clearly obtaining the respect of the CCW fans.

After Meltdown, Chell wrestled "Rowdy" Ronda Rousey on XX 14, injured right arm and all. Despite Ronda's continual assault to the limb and near-victory, Chell defeated her with a Regal-Plex for the surprise pin. Backstage after the match, Chell confronted Trixie Tang, perhaps hinting to a later match between the two. Confrontations between the two would continue up on XX 15 and 16, culminating in the announcement of a match between Chell and Trixie Tang at Nevermore. On XX 17, during a match between Chell and Sissi Delmas, Trixie ran down and stole Wheatley from Chell's possession before running away to the back. Trixie would manage to keep possession of Wheatley up to an including Nevermore when Chell and Trixie faced off. At Nevermore, with a Low Blow assist from Trixie, Chell would lose to the Fairly OddParents gal. The rivalry between the two would continue, however, at and after the 2013 FanFiction Wrestling Awards. Trixie Tang and Timmy Turner teamed up and sneakily scored the victory over Gordon Freeman and Chell in a battle of relationships. Trixie would participate in a one-night tournament on XX 18 to determine a #1 Contender for the Females Championship, but in her Triple Threat Match versus Blossom and Emmy, Trixie was pulled through the ring via a portal by Chell and taken out of the equation. Following this, Trixie was contacted by a robotic voice that claimed to know of and about Chell, foreboding Trixie's demise and ensuring that things are not over between the two of them. This was enhanced by the events of XX 19, when Trixie was attacked by an Aperture Science turret in her locker room and then nearly suffocated by neurotoxin gas.


Chell is known to be silent, calm, and collected but also violent when the time comes inside the ring. Her manager, Wheatley, does all of the talking while Chell is strictly a woman of action.
