During the AEW Dynamite Quake By The Lake, the Jacksonville company confirmed Kris Statlander's injury that occurred on the August 5 episode of AEW Dark, when she landed her foot badly after a Big Boot. Although initially it was thought that the problem was in her foot, with a tweet Statlander confirmed instead that the problem is the knee, a part of her body that she knows well because she has already been injured in the past.
Then at the beginning of September, she updated her fans by telling them that she had knee surgery and that everything went well she did it with a joke: "I must have thought of you when I got injured because you make my knees weak.
When is Kris Statlander coming back?
Wrestler AEW tweeted on 22nd December, out of nowhere saying, “No I am not cleared yet,” adding below: "'AEW Wrestler Provides Injury Update' is the headline I’m expecting to see." She also added, "Thank you to those for offering me your legs but I assure you, once I’m healed, both of mine will be mechanically enhanced and your regular limbs will just not suffice." When she'd the injury, Kris Statlander said, "My lateral meniscus is torn, and there are lateral impact fractures in the tibial and femoral head.
So just small cracks that are more of a bruise, but still, technically a leg ruptured. So recovery time, it's about six to eight months after the operation. Once we got the MRI, we were hoping it was just a torn meniscus. This would take a couple of weeks or three months." Kris Statlander continued to engage in banter on her Twitter profile while making light of her injury and discussing her impending comeback. The 27-year-old's been a part of the AEW-roster since the first year it launched, in 2019.
