Britt Baker’s growth as a pro wrestler has certainly been a significant one, ever since she debuted in AEW back in 2019. Baker’s hard work certainly paid off in a huge way as she has become one of the top stars in the entire company and not just the women’s division. It seems she asked Martin Cove to appear during a recent episode of AEW Dynamite as well.
Baker has been booked as a strong AEW Women’s Champion, ever since she won it from Hikaru Shida back at Double Or Nothing last year. Since then she has competed in numerous feuds.
Martin Kove, who is known for his role as John Kreese in The Karate Kid franchise and Cobra Kai series, appeared during the February 16th episode of AEW Dynamite. Cove told Baker and Jamie Hayter to beat up Thunder Rosa and Mercedes Martinez after their match.
While speaking to Renee Paquette on The Sessions, Martin Kove talked about his appearance on AEW Dynamite. Kove revealed that Britt Baker had asked her to appear on the show.
“We did an autograph show months ago and my convention agent introduced us. She was great, big Cobra Kai fan, knew all the episodes and everything. She said, ‘will you do this promo for me.’ I said, ‘What is your background?’ She says, ‘I’m a dentist.’ ‘Oh’ That’s things you would not think of a wrestler. She said, ‘will you do this promo for me, it’ll be great.’ Positions are juxtaposed in life and just come in and say something very endearing of me as the character John Kreese. I said, ‘okay, that’s very endearing and I’m soft-spoken and loving.’ She got an enormous amount of social media on it, huge. She called me a couple of times to do another one and I couldn’t.
This time, we were in Nashville and she wasn’t wrestling, but she was buying into a wrestler that was supposed to win and didn’t I came in and give her advice. ‘Finish her yourself, no mercy’ if it came to that. The person she was sponsoring, lost, so she had to go to the ring and do all this and they all finished screaming ‘Cobra Kai,’ she walked up to me and we played it out. ‘What should I do?’ ‘What I told you to do. Go in there and finish it.’ She goes in there and kicks the girl’s ass,”
Britt Baker is set to defend her AEW Women’s Championship against Thunder Rosa at AEW Revolution on March 6th. It remains to be seen whether she will end up retaining her title or not.
