Britt Baker has worked very hard to improve herself and become one of the best female wrestlers in AEW. It was a slow and gradual process as fans initially rejected her entirely. She is no stranger to hardcore matches and it appears that Baker hit back at all of her critics who feel women shouldn’t compete in hardcore matches.

Britt Baker is a former AEW Women’s Champion who truly become a star thanks to her Lights Out match against Thunder Rosa back in 2021. The iconic visual of her bloody face remains an integral part of her character.

After that, quite a few women have competed in hardcore matches in AEW that have seen them bleed. This includes Ruby Soho, Tay Melo and numerous other female wrestlers.

While speaking with WhatCulture, Britt Baker addressed the critics who feel women shouldn’t compete in hardcore matches. Baker made it clear that if someone truly enjoys hardcore wrestling, then it shouldn’t matter who is in the match.


“I think, at the end of the day, people like what they like and they hate what they hate. You can’t put women in a box and not let them break out of it. If you like hardcore matches, then you should like hardcore matches. It shouldn’t matter who’s in the ring. If it’s a good match, it’s a good match. No matter who’s on either side of the ring.

They’re definitely not fun. It hurts, for a long time too. It does hurt. I wouldn’t take back anything I’ve done, I’m very proud of it. I’m happy, I’m happy for what it did for AEW, myself, and for women’s wrestling.”

Britt Baker is currently teaming up with Jamie Hayter and Hikaru Shida and feuding with The Outcasts. We will have to wait and see how Britt Baker will be booked in the coming weeks.
