Kris Statlander Admits Only Recently Learning About Owen Hart AEW

AEW star Kris Statlander has admitted to only recently learning about Owen Hart ahead of her participation in the tournament.

Speaking with Wrestling Steel Chair, Statlander discussed her evolution, coming back from her knee injury and taking part in the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament.

When asked what does Owen Hart mean to her and whether he was an inspiration, she said:

“I actually did not watch wrestling at all growing up, so I didn’t learn anything about anybody until I started training actually in 2016, so it was well past everything. I wish I could say that he was an inspiration for me but I wasn’t around I didn’t know of his work until more recently. To be picked sort of as an alternate, I guess, to honour his legacy, makes me want to do the wrestling community proud. I’m given an opportunity to really honour someone’s legacy who truly was one of the greatest. Even though I may not know much about it, I still know a huge opportunity when I am presented with one and I will be going up with my 100 percent all-business, just going full-forward, trying to do the best that I can and really wrestle for the Hart family.”

Kris Statlander will face Ruby Soho in an Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Semifinal Match this Friday on AEW Rampage after defeating Red Velvet on last Friday’s show.
