Kris Statlander is one of the top stars in AEW. The current TBS Champion is the one and only wrestler to have pinned Jade Cargill. She did it not just once, but twice.
The Galaxy’s Greatest Alien has been with AEW since 2019. She was initially a regular feature on Dark. Then, Statlander began to make her mark as a tag team wrestler. She quickly became one of the top stars in the promotion.
Statlander had been sidelined for almost a year due to an injury. She made a shocking return at the AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view where she defeated Jade Cargill. By doing so, she won her first title in the Jacksonville-based promotion.
She was recently a guest on the Under The Ring podcast. During the interview, she shared the list of people whom she goes to for advice. One of the people she mentioned was former AEW International Champion Orange Cassidy.
“I always go to VSK. He was one of my mentors when I was training. And of course, always Pat Buck, Brian Myers they are my trainers. I always trust them with anything and everything. One of my bigger mentors and go to now, especially because he’s there with me almost every single week and we talk all the time is Orange Cassidy. So, I can rely on him. I know he’s always tired and always lazy, but he’s also always there for me. I can always rely on him to help me out as well… Orange is incredible,” Kris Statlander said.
Both Orange Cassidy and Kris Statlander have built a good friendship with each other. She has also teamed with him and the rest of Best Friends in several matches.
