Statlander took to Twitter to confirm this report and confirmed more details, writing: “Since the news is out. I told you I’d dive on Kip again and dammit I did. But in doing so, I ended up with a high grade tear in my ACL. Yes I need surgery. Yes I’ll be out of the ring for a while. I’ll do my best to still show up on your TVs as much as I can.”
It’s being reported that an AEW star has picked up a knee injury at this past week’s Dynamite tapings, although details are limited at this time.
PWInsider reports that Kris Statlander injured her knee, but the severity is not yet known, nor is how long she’ll be out of action for.
Statlander is currently ranked #2 in the women’s division, although the rankings are only updated each Wednesday before Dynamite, so that might have changed by the next episode.
She lost in a tag match this past Wednesday, teaming with Women’s World Champion Hikaru Shida in a losing effort to the team of Penelope Ford and Nyla Rose, a match in which Shida took the fall to Ford.
