Britt Baker’s organic growth as an in-ring competitor has been one of the best in the AEW women’s division so far. Baker worked the hardest she ever did and eventually became one of the top stars in the entire company and not just the women’s division.
Britt Baker had a successful run as the AEW Women’s World Champion after beating Hikaru Shida for it at Double Or Nothing last year. She remained the champion for almost 10 months after that.
While speaking with Forbes, Britt Baker addressed haters who told her to end her life after she beat her opponents in a match. She also blasted the rampant toxicity on social media as well.
“I think people just go on to Twitter just to be heard in a negative way. They just want to say something nasty and hateful and mean, so they will go on to Twitter for literally no [other] reason and they just say it and make sure they tag you in it, too.
We’ve had people in the industry kill themselves over cyberbullying, and you’d think that that would be enough for people to wake up. Keep your mean thoughts to yourself,
You know, the body-shaming and telling me I should go kill myself because I beat so and so in a match, it’s just really, really horrible and toxic.”
Baker also told all of her critics to get a life. She is also down for a reality TV show with Adam Cole in the future. We’ll have to see whether she will end up winning the Owen Hart Tournament or not.
