Britt Baker has established herself as one of the best female wrestlers in AEW. It took her a long time to truly hone her craft as well. She also decided to fire back at her haters for a good reason.
Recently, Britt Baker stated that she would love to square off against Sasha Banks in a singles match. This led to a lot of backlash among fans for some reason.
AEW’s resident dentist recently appeared on 1140 AM The Bet’s The Playmakers in Las Vegas with Lindsey Brown and Adrian Hernandez. While speaking with them, Baker hit back at her haters who criticized just her for wanting to face Sasha Banks.
I literally answered a question. I didn’t call out Sasha Banks. I didn’t say, ‘hey this match needs to happen.’ I was just asked a question and I gave an answer and they said what’s a cool dream match you’d like to have. Sasha is one of my favorite wrestlers. It wasn’t me challenging her or challenging WWE, all I did was say hey this is a cool match. And I heard from fans, WWE fans, and even wrestling fans, in general, did not like that. I don’t think they even read the whole interview. They read the clickbait and they run with it and they create just a nasty narrative when they don’t even know what they’re talking about. It’s so frustrating because in my position, I’m not going to respond to John 155 who has 19 followers, but I want to respond and be like ‘shut the hell up, you don’t even know what you’re talking about.”
Baker also told all of her critics to get a life. She also blasted those who told her to end her life. We’ll have to see if Baker will win the Owen Hart Tournament at Double Or Nothing or not.
