Kris Statlander is one of the most promising names in the AEW Women’s division. She has worked with various superstars during her AEW career but has also received injuries.
Kris injured herself in June 2020 and this time around tore her ACL in a match against Sierra on “AEW Dark” in August. In a recent interview with Hollywood Life, she reflected on her current injury status and Halloween plans.
What are my plans for October and the rest of the year? Mostly just recovering from my knee surgery, getting stronger, and getting myself ready to get back in the ring,. Unfortunately, it’s the only thing I can really focus on right now, and I just want to heal as best as I can.
This is Kris’ second injury in two years, and she tore her ACL on both occasions. She is nursing her injury and hopes to be back in the ring soon. She was on the verge of a push before her career was halted due to injury.
After she landed awkwardly from a running kick, Statlander and her team initially feared only a torn meniscus, which would have sidelined her for approximately three months. However, the MRI revealed that she had completely torn the ACL in her left knee.
On a positive note, Statlander noted that, unlike her previous ACL tear, she was relatively pain-free after the latest injury, and that she could walk around within the first 36 hours.
