AEW's Kris Statlander out 6-8 months with torn ACL

Kris Statlander

Kris Statlander is out through the end of the year.

Tuesday’s AEW Road To featured Statlander talking about her injury, which took place prior to a live edition of Rampage on August 5 against Sierra. She explained that the injury to her right knee took place after landing a big boot.

“After getting an MRI, I have a completely torn ACL, my lateral meniscus is torn, and there is lateral impaction fractures in my tibial and femoral heads that are more of a bruise, but technically a broken leg,” Statlander said. “So recovery time is about 6-8 months post operation.”

She added that initially she hoped that it was just a meniscus tear, but once it was shown her ACL was completely torn, she knew she would be out for a long time.

“Whenever my return is, I’m ready to feel it in the crowd. So thank you all for supporting me through this time,” she said.

Statlander previously tore the ACL in her left knee in 2020.
