Kris Statlander’s career with All Elite Wrestling has only just begun, but she’s already a fan-favorite competitor. After signing with AEW, Statlander gave a farewell address to Create-A-Pro Wrestling, the company she had been working for. Here are some highlights. (H/T to Robert DeFelice of Fightful.)

“I knew nothing about wrestling before I started wrestling,” said Statlander. “In a weird way, wrestling saved my life and I’d be nowhere near where I am today if I didn’t meet every single one of these people here and if they never helped me grow into the alien I’ve become today.”

“I just want to say thank you to all the fans, and thank you to everyone here at Create-A-Pro for helping me get sober,” said Statlander.
