During an appearance on AEW Unrestricted, Kris Statlander revealed that she was close to signing with the WWE, but that controversial tweets of hers showed up during her background check and prevented her from making the move. Here’s what she had to say:
There was one tweet I made about how my old school got put on lockdown because police thought that a suspicious person was carrying a gun or a weapon at a gas station nearby the school. So my college went on lockdown, but it was just a guy holding an umbrella, and because I mentioned police in the tweet, it got flagged and stuff like that.
It’s very strict. There was like a fire burn thing that got flagged one time. Yeah, it’s very strict. So there was like a decent amount of thing that got flagged that was just like weird, just like out of context things [or] things that didn’t make sense. So I explain like some of the stuff is stunt stuff. Some of the stuff is not really what you expect it, what you think it is. It just highlights words. It doesn’t highlight the whole thing.
So when I responded, and I was like, ‘hey, everything that that you said was inappropriate was deleted. You shouldn’t be able to find anything. This stuff was deleted.’ I think I deleted it but like deleted it after I had already had submitted the background check, so it might have done. But that was just poor timing on my part.
