Update on the status of Kris Statlander:
Everyone's favorite alien Kris Statlander was on the rise in AEW during the earlier half of 2020. Since her time in AEW she has challenged for the women's title on multiple occasions against both Rhino and Nyla Rose. Unfortunately Stanley would be sidelined with a torn ACL injury that occurred during a tag team match on an episode of Dynamite back in June. She recently sat down for an interview with Wrestling Inc. and talked about her road to recovery.
Here is a snippet of the interview:
"I'm doing pretty good," she said. "I think from what I've heard overall is that I might be a little bit ahead of others where I'm at right now, but I still have a real long way to go before I can re-debut basically and get back in the ring before I'm debuting again obviously, and I'm going to want to be training a little bit before. So I'll be able to get in the ring before you'll see me back on TV. It could be another eight months or so."
