Kris Statlander is set for surgery.
The AEW competitor suffered a high-grade ACL tear in June and will undergo surgery on Tuesday. Statlander last wrestled on June 10, teaming with Hikaru Shida to take on Nyla Rose & Penelope Ford. She suffered the injury performing a dive on Kip Sabian.
Tomorrow is surgery day and I’m either going to spend my night watching #AEWDark or sleeping. Luckily I’ll be entertained Wednesday as well on my first day of recovery knowing #AEWDynamite is LIVE Wednesday at 8/7c pn TNT. Who’s watching with me? -- pic.twitter.com/J2Gblez3K2— Kris Statlander (@callmekrisstat) July 27, 2020
Despite being sidelined for over a month, Statlander is still the number four ranked woman in the official AEW women's rankings.
It is unknown when Statlander will return from injury. She was a regular competitor on AEW Dynamite and even challenged for the AEW Women's Title at AEW Revolution in February.
Fightful will have live coverage of AEW Dynamite beginning at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday.
