Ben Stiller Responds To Kris Statlander’s Zoolander Tribute At AEW All Out

Kris Statlander Zoolander entrance at AEW All Out

Kris Statlander is so hot right now, and Ben Stiller has taken notice.

Kris Statlander shocked the world at Double or Nothing when she returned from injury to defeat Jade Cargill, handing the previously-undefeated TBS Champion her first loss in AEW. Since then, Statlander has successfully defended her TBS Championship against the likes of Nyla Rose, Taya Valkyrie, and Mercedes Martinez among others.

At AEW All Out in Chicago, IL, Statlander faced another challenge in Ruby Soho, the only member of The Outcasts who wasn’t a part of a match at All In the previous week. Soho made her entrance alongside new AEW Women’s Champion Saraya, who proclaimed to the camera that the pair were about to be “double champs.”

When it came time for Statlander to enter the arena, Zoolander fans were delighted to see her pay tribute to the three-time male model of the year with both her ring gear and her piercing rendition of Blue Steel during her runway-themed entrance. When she alerted Ben Stiller to the fact that she’d channeled the energy of his iconic character, the actor responded on social media:

“Ridiculously good looking”

While All Elite Wrestling has had its fair share of backstage drama in recent days, there has thankfully been no word of a random gasoline fight accident.

Kris Statlander Defeated Ruby Soho At AEW All Out

Soho had a chip on her shoulder the size of Malaysia going into the All Out match, saying that it was ridiculous that she hadn’t won a major title in the 13 years she’s spent in the world of wrestling. Statlander knew she had a tall order ahead of her given that Soho had The Outcasts in her corner, but in the end, the champion prevailed.

Mid-match, Toni Storm was revealed to be underneath the ring, but she didn’t prove to be as helpful as Soho had hoped. Instead, Storm served as a distraction to her fellow Outcast as she grabbed a paint can from Soho and sprayed green paint into the air. Statlander was able to capitalize on the distraction and hit Sunday Night Fever for the pinfall victory, retaining her championship.

No word on whether or not she relaxed with an orange mocha frappuccino.
