Kris Statlander is back.

The popular women’s wrestling star made an unadvertised surprise return at the AEW Double Or Nothing 2023 premium live event on Sunday night at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

Statlander emerged to challenge Jade Cargill after “That B*tch” improved to a flawless 60-0 with a win over Taya Valkyrie in their scheduled TBS Women’s Championship showdown.

After the match, Cargill’s manager, “Smart” Mark Sterling got on the microphone to boast about Cargill being a fighting champion willing to take on all challengers at any time, but boasted how there aren’t any left.

This led to Statlander making her surprise return and in a quick match, earning a clean pin fall victory over Cargill to give her the first loss of her AEW career, and become only the second-ever TBS Women’s Champion in the process.
