Britt Baker calls herself a Role Model in AEW, and the real-life dentist also has her own Waiting Room segment. She noticed that Bayley also got her own segment last week with Ding Dong Hello.
During the AEW Dynamite postshow, Britt Baker was asked if she saw Bayley’s new segment. She admitted that she didn’t see all of the SmackDown show because she was in the gym, but she did catch the clips she needed to see on social media.
“I was at the gym, I didn’t watch the whole show. But I did watch clips of it on Twitter. I plan to go back and watch the full thing.”
“Imitation is the best form of flattery,” Tony Schiavone said in response. He was obviously pointing out the fact that Britt Baker’s segment came first.
Then Baker revealed that she likes Bayley because she is a role model.
“Hey, we like Bayley. She’s a role model.”
We’ll have to see how this friendly competition across company lines turns out. It will take a huge shift in the pro wrestling landscape to get a match with Baker vs Bayley. At least there seems to be respect from Baker regarding the situation.
