Kris Statlander is certainly one of the mainstays of the AEW women’s division as she has worked hard to gain fanfare in the company. Statlander previously had a paranormal gimmick and was billed as coming from the Andromeda Galaxy. She also provided a timetable for her recovery.
While speaking on AEW’s Road to West Virginia YouTube special, Kris Statlander talked about her injury. Statlander revealed that she will be out of action for 6-8 months.
“So, recovery time is about 6-8 months. Once we had the MRI, we were hoping it’d just be a meniscus tear; that would have kept me out for 3 months at the most. But now that we know the ACL is torn, it could be 6-8 months. Hopefully closer to 6, considering I know what I have to do. I’ve done this before.
“I came back biger and stronger the last time, and I’m going to use this opportunity to do that one more time — because fall down two times, get up three,” Statlander said with a thumbs up gesture. “I’m just trying to stay positive, gotta make the jokes — it’s the only way to do it.”
Statlander previously suffered an ACL injury in June 2020 and was out of action until April 2021. We wish Statlander a speedy recovery and hope she returns sooner rather than later.
