Wrestling veteran Jim Cornette weighed in on his opinion on AEW star Kris Statlander’s recent gimmick change.
Statlander, for most of her time with AEW, is portrayed as an alien from “Andromeda Galaxy”, aligning herself with Best Friends and becoming a popular figure among fans. tomb.
In recent weeks, however, Statlander has dropped the alien gimmick to present a more serious character, complete with ring gear and a new hairstyle.
Speaking in the most recent episode of The Jim Cornette Experience, veteran co-host Brian Last mentioned that Kris Statlander is no longer an alien. Cornette responded by saying that fans should forget about the star’s previous gimmick:
“Well and she also dropped the bottle of peroxide she was doing her hair with, so maybe she’ll be a normal human now. She’s been gone for a while, maybe we can forget she was born in the ‘Galaxy of Fairies’. (From 2:33:14 to 2:33:25)
Cornette isn’t a huge fan of the segment that Statlander took part in in the most recent episode of Dynamite. Cornette sees the segment as just an excuse for TBS Champion Jade Cargill to interrupt and swear on TV:
“Kris Statlander and Red Velvet would fight and they read some lines to each other and Jade Cargill and her entire entourage walked in so Jade could say the word on television. Is there another reason for that? ” (from 2:32:51 to 2:33:08)
