Britt Baker finally reached the top of AEW’s Women’s Division at Double or Nothing. She is also representing a division that has received a lot of criticism since the company opened its doors. She has a very good response for those constant doubters.
Baker replied to criticisms of the AEW Women’s Division during the media scrum following Double or Nothing. Baker said that it is a learning experience, but that criticism sill only help them get better.
“It’s just a growing and a learning process. And it’s hard. It’s hard to hear it in mass quantities, which I was. But you have to. Even if you’re the best in the business, you have to have criticism if you’re going to get better. I just happened to have a lot of it, so I got a lot better.”
“The division as a whole, I think most of the criticism, at the time, was the TV time. None of us, almost none of us had any TV experience. We were all learning and growing together as a division in front of your eyes. And I think that’s kind of a bit our charm and why people are jumping on the bandwagon now. Cause it’s like ‘oh man, I remember when Britt Baker couldn’t hold a microphone. And now look at her.’ So I think that’s why a lot of people are along for the ride.”
We’ll have to see how long Britt Baker remains AEW Women’s World Champion. She certainly scratched and clawed her way up to the top, finally reaching her destination at Double or Nothing.
AEW will always have doubters as long as they are in operation. That won’t stop those dedicated women wrestling for the company from giving their best as they try each week to better the division and themselves.
