AEW announced today that Kris Statlander will return to the ring against an unknown opponent on this Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. This will mark the first time that she has wrestled a match in 10 months.
Statlander had been on the sidelines when she tore her ACL on the June 10th episode of Dynamite. She suffered the injury when hitting a dive to the outside on Kip Sabian.
Just two weeks ago, Statlander made her return during the Arcade Anarchy match that saw Chuck Taylor and Orange Cassidy take on Sabian and Miro. Statlander took out Penelope Ford when she slammed her through an air hockey table.
