Kris Statlander Comments On Wrestling For AEW, Her Recovery & More


AEW star Kris Statlander was interviewed by Sports Illustrated where she spoke about wrestling with the company and how her recovery process is going, among other topics.

Hardest part of her recovery: “I’ve had injuries before, but nothing this major that’s taken me out for such an extensive period of time. It’s been pretty devastating. That’s the hardest part. There is so much I haven’t got the chance to show yet. Anyone that’s seen my independents knows I can do gimmick matches or hardcore matches. It sucks that I had that taken away from me so early on in AEW. It’s not going to be forever, and I’m going to rebuild everything I started. It’s never ideal to get injured or have surgery, but there is so much else going on in the world. I’m just focusing on staying home and getting better.”

Will she be returning to the ring soon: “It’s really difficult to tell. It’s a big injury. I had surgery at the end of July, but I’m doing everything I can to get back as soon as I can. Right now, it’s too early to tell.”

On showing off another side of her personality: “This is me. Whether I’m in my whole alien zone or not, this is how I act. If I had all my face paint on and I was aliened up, the same exact words would be coming out of my mouth. It’s not a character; it’s really who I am. So it’s a chance to be me. Sometimes people get so caught up on the alien thing that they don’t realize this is just me being myself.”
