Kris Statlander Wants to be the One to Beat Jade Cargill

Posted By James Walsh on 06/29/22

AEW star Kris Statlander recently spoke with Jaychele Nicole about all things pro-wrestling, including how she hopes to be the first one to dethrone current TBS champion Jade Cargill. That and more can be found in the highlights of Statlanderís interview below.

Hopes to be the first person that defeat Jade Cargill:

Iím gonna say youíre gonna see Jadeís toughest challenge ever ó yet ó ever, maybe, weíll see. But um, I appreciate everyone thatís supporting the idea of me being the first one to beat her. That would be really cool, but we gotta get the match booked first. So donít donít get your hopes up until we see that graphic, okay? Thatís all Iím gonna say is, if it happens, it happens. If it doesnít, donít get your panties in a twist over it. Life goes on. Iíll get something one day, maybe one day will be my time to shine, but if not.

How the crowd has been reacting differently to her:

I donít know. I donít know why itís happening because I feel like a lot of what Iíve done in the ring isnít very different from what Iíve done before with any other way of presenting myself. I think if thereís one thing I can take away from just being there in the moment in front of the crowd with alien Kris, I feel like people were like, oh, yeah, sheís fun, sheís cool, we like her. Then, I have to get like halfway into my match for people to be like, oh, damn, we actually want her to win. But now that, ĎOh damn, we really want this person to winí is happening just from my entrance and maybe it is the different presentation. Maybe itís me taking myself more seriously. Maybe, I donít know, maybe people are just finally giving me a chance. I donít really know why itís happening. Iím very grateful for it though. Believe me, it means the world to me. Like I said, I feel like, Iím not really doing anything so much different. At least like in the ring, but as far as my wrestling goes, I have the same moves, have the same finish. The only thing major is that Iím not booping people, which, you know, itís always some harmless fun, thatís all. Yeah, I donít know why itís happening. But keep it up everyone. Keep the noise coming.
