Thunder Rosa and Toni Storm are the two stars battling for the top slot in AEW’s women’s division. However, even without a title, it’s difficult to dispute that Britt Baker isn’t one of the company’s top dogs. After beating Hikaru Shida at AEW Double or Nothing 2021, Baker held the AEW Women’s World Championship for over a year.
Britt Baker also won the first Owen Hart Foundation Tournament this year. As she revealed on the latest Swerve City Podcast, the D.M.D. has been dealing with a number of injuries. “I’ve never missed any episodes of TV with every broken bone and injury and this and that, so I’m just saying, what bone have I not broken at this point? My leg, my nose twice now, my wrist,” she shared.
I had a concussion, and I was at work every week because that’s where I wanted to be. I had my nose surgery on a Monday, Dynamite was on a Wednesday; I was there cutting a promo because I wanted to be. And Tony [Khan], you know Tony, he’s the most caring, wonderful guy, but I was like, ‘No, this is an opportunity. I’m going to have black eyes…
Britt went on to claim that because she has a “competitive mentality,” she opted to push through the pain. Britt also stated that she wishes to put herself in a position to succeed. “It’s very much a sink or swim environment in AEW,” Baker adds.
As previously reported, Baker and longtime industry veteran Saraya have been embroiled in a developing feud on AEW TV since Saraya made her AEW debut back in September at AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam. Being an AEW star is difficult, and fans should respect wrestlers for this. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Ringside News.
