Kris Statlander has been out of action since June 2020 when she suffered a high-grade ACL tear.
The injury occurred during a tag team match on the June 10 episode of AEW Dynamite. Statlander, teaming with Hikaru Shida, wrestled Nyla Rose & Penelope Ford when she suffered the injury while performing a dive onto Kip Sabian. She underwent surgery for her injury in July.
Speaking during Pro Wrestling Junkies Q&A, Statlander provided an update on her injury.
"It's going. It's a very serious injury. I would say my knee is close to being healed, but it's such an extensive and long recovery process to make sure I'm ready to go. Sometimes it takes people up to a year to get back, but it's coming along for sure," she said. "I'm definitely pushing way harder than I need to be, but I do it because I know I'm going to come out stronger in the end."
On December 11, she posted a workout video showing just how far she's come in her rehab.
It is unknown when Statlander will be back in action.
