Kris Statlander wins the AAW Women’s Championship

Kris Statlander continues to have a very impressive year all the way up to its final days. Over the weekend, AAW Wrestling hosted their Windy City Classic XV event. The Illinois based company introduced its Women’s Championship in 2017. Statlander defeated Jessicka Havok to become the new champion and only the fourth woman overall to hold the title since its inception.

Havok has been the most commanding champion for the organization. She has been both the inaugural and only two-time champion in its short history. Her combined reigns equal an impressive 461-days. Other champions include Kimber Lee and Kylie Rae.

Statlander adds another title to her list of the year. She is a former WSU Spirit Champion which she defeated Jordynne Grace in March. She would drop the title to Davienne in September. Since then she became interim WSU Champion for Tessa Blanchard as she defeated Diamante at the finals of a tournament in October. Statlander would then be bumped up to WSU Champion earlier in the month when Blanchard stepped down. She lost the title to Brittany Blake on Dec. 14.

Wrestling’s resident alien also officially became signed to AEW at the beginning of the month. Since then she has risen to the top of the women’s power rankings. She was originally scheduled to face Riho for the AEW Women’s World Title on Dynamite’s Jan. 1 episode, but due to a scheduling conflict with Bar Wrestling, that match will not take place. Instead, she will face the winner of a 4-Way match between Riho, Hikaru Shida, Britt Baker, and Nyla Rose on Jan. 8 for the title.
