AEW officially confirms signings of Kris Statlander and Big Swole


AEW has officially confirmed that two members of their women's division have signed with the company.

AEW posted tweets today announcing the signings of Kris Statlander and Big Swole. Statlander debuted for the promotion by teaming with Swole on an episode of AEW Dark last month, while Swole's first match for AEW was the Casino Battle Royale at All Out.

Statlander has wrestled on Dynamite twice and defeated Hikaru Shida in a singles match on last Wednesday's show. Statlander has a 1-0 singles record (1-2 overall) and is ranked fifth in the latest women's division top-five rankings. Shida is still currently ranked as the top challenger to AEW Women's Champion Riho.

Swole has wrestled on Dark four times, losing two tag matches and two singles matches.

Swole is making her Dynamite debut against Emi Sakura on this Wednesday's show. It's taking place at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas and will also feature The Young Bucks vs. Santana & Ortiz in a Texas street fight and Cody Rhodes & QT Marshall vs. The Butcher & The Blade.
