Kris Statlander suffers ACL tear

The women’s division in AEW has been thin recently due to coronavirus travel restrictions for numerous foreign wrestlers. Then, Dr. Britt Baker DMD went down with a knee injury. Now, AEW took another hit to the depth of that side of the roster.

Kris Statlander confirmed that she will need surgery to repair a high-grade tear in her ACL.

The injury appears to have been on a suicide dive onto Kip Sabian during last Wednesday’s Dynamite. View the maneuver starting at the 4:32 mark of the following highlight video. You can see Statlander immediately clutch her knee after impact.

Let’s hope for a speedy recovery for Statlander. On the bright side, maybe we’ll finally see vignettes about why she is called the Galaxy’s Greatest Alien. And yes, I want rocket ships and alien conspiracy theories involved in her backstory videos.
