In a recent episode of AEW’s Road To series, Kris Statlander provided an update on her injury, noting that she will be out of action for approximately 6-8 months.
“Last week, we did a live Rampage in Grand Rapids, Michigan I believe and we filmed some Dark matches and I did a big boot, which I don’t really do often, but I decided to do it and when I landed, my foot and my knee buckled on me.
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, so just tiny little cracks that are more of a bruise, but still, technically a broken leg.
Recovery time, it’s about 6 to 8 months post-operation, once we got the MRI, we were hoping it was just a meniscus tear, that would have either been a few weeks to three months at most, but now that we know the ACL is completely torn, that’s the one you don’t want to get, so if you ever think about blowing out your knees, don’t tear your ACL, because it’s the long one. It could be 6 to 8 months, hopefully closer to 6, considering I know what I have to do, I’ve done this before, I came back bigger, better, more galactic, stronger than ever.
I’m going to just take this opportunity to do that one more time, because I fall down two times and get up three. I’m just trying to stay positive, got to make the jokes, it’s the only way you get through it. Whenever my return is, I’m really looking forward to being able to feel it in the crowd, so thank you all for supporting me through this time.”
