During a recent interview, Kris Statlander revealed that she will be out of action from 6 to 8 months after suffering a torn ACL.
We have an important update on Kris Statlander’s status following her recent knee injury.
It was first informed that Kris Statlander had suffered a completely torn ACL and lateral meniscus injury, with Statlander herself revealing on an Instagram video that she will require surgery.
Even though she said that she will be undergoing surgery, Statlander didn’t provide any information about when the procedure will take place or how much time she could be out of AEW programming.
However, during a recent appearance at the latest episode of AEW Road To, Kris Statlander revealed more details about the origin of her injury, while also stating she will need some months to recover.
“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, my knee buckled on me,” she explained. “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.
So recovery time, it’s about six-to-eight months post-operation.” (H/T Fightful)
What Does Kris Statlander Think About The Recovery Process?
When referring to this, Statlander said she remains confident that she will return stronger than ever, while also thanking her fans for their support.
“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. So, I’m just trying to stay positive, gotta 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.” (H/T Fightful)
