Prior to her injury, it was reported that she was in line for a major push, and on television, Toni Storm was officially ranked in the number one contender position because of the injury to Statlander.

“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 recalled. "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,” she continued. “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, children. So if you ever think about blowing out your knees, don't tear your ACL, because it's the long one. So it could be six-to-eight months. Hopefully, closer to six, 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. 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.”

We continue to wish Kris a speedy recovery and will provide updates on her recovery as they are made available.
