Originally published at Kris Statlander discusses missing AEW All In, states that All Out is 'all about Stat'
Missing All In is something Statlander understands, but says All Out is about her.
On the bill for AEW’s All Out pay-per-view is the next defense of Kris Statlander’s TBS Championship. She’ll be putting the title on the line against The Outcasts’ Ruby Soho.
Going into the bout, NBC Chicago caught up with the champion and got her thoughts about not being a part of AEW All In at Wembley Stadium. Statlander brought up the photo she shared on Instagram to show that she was not in London, England.
She stated that she understands there were a limited amount of spots on the card. She shared the photo to show she was not there because she saw people having conversations about the idea of her competing on the pre-show. Statlander admitted that it was frustrating not being a part of All In, but All Out is going to be about her.
There was so much that needed to be on that show (AEW All In) and you know, there’s not always a spot for everybody and that’s okay. I only posted that photo (from my car) to show people because I saw there was so much speculation online about, ‘Is Ruby and Kris happening at All In? Maybe she’ll get a BUY-IN match’ and I only posted that to be like, guys, I’m not there. I wasn’t trying to be like, oh, I’m so mad that I’m not on. It was very upsetting that I did not get a chance to be there, but, I only posted that to just say, I’m not there. My time is gonna be at (All Out) and that’s all it is and I was very like, let’s enjoy All In for what it is. Let’s support everyone that is there that had to make that travel, that had to adjust to the time change for such a short amount of time and pull off such an amazing event, because now, Chicago is my time. So, they got their moment but now this is all about Stat.
Statlander’s reign as TBS Champion began when she defeated Jade Cargill at Double or Nothing.
