AEW pulled off somewhat of a coup signing Kris Statlander, she was very close to signing a contract with WWE, but the offer of immediate TV time and a push got her to join AEW instead.
Since appearing for the company, she has been on fire and was due to challenge Riho for the AEW Women’s World Championship on New Year Day’s Dynamite episode after she won #1 contenders match against Dr. Britt Baker. Unfortunately it seems due to an oversight she will be unable to compete for AEW in Jacksonville as she is scheduled to be in Los Angeles for Bar Wrestling as you can see below.
When the clash became apparent, AEW announced the match would be postponed, with Tony Khan taking the time to comment himself directly on Twitter.
So Statlander will now challenge for the title on January 8th, and we’ll have to wait and see if there are any consequences for her for not making the booking clash known before AEW booked her in a title match form the same day.
