Kris Statlander confirmed on Twitter that she suffered a “high grade tear” in her ACL during her match on Wednesday’s Dynamite and will be undergoing surgery. A torn ACL typically means six-nine months out of the ring.
Since the news is out. I told you I’d dive on Kip again and dammit I did. But in doing so, I ended up with a high grade tear in my ACL. Yes I need surgery. Yes I’ll be out of the ring for a while. I’ll do my best to still show up on your TVs as much as I can. @AEWrestling 👽💚 https://t.co/oVS495nwok

Kris Statlander suffered a knee injury on Wednesday’s AEW Dynamite, but the severity isn’t known yet, PWInsider is reporting, citing several sources.
Statlander teamed with Hikaru Shida in a loss to Penelope Ford and Nyla Rose on the show.
Statlander appeared to be fine throughout the match, up until the very end when she gave Kip Sabian a tope suicida on the outside. The camera briefly showed her going to grab at her knee for a split second after the dive, but cut away.
You can see the spot, which may or may not be when the injury happened, at around 4:35 in the video below.
