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. Now it appears there is a measure of truth to a recent AEW backstage controversy concerning Britt Baker.

The women’s division in AEW has been a major topic of discussion after this week’s Dynamite when a sign was shown for a good few seconds on television that simply said “Book the women’s division better”. This was right after Taya Valkyrie and Britt Baker’s match, which received a lot of criticism from fans.

Indie wrestler LuFisto worked one match for AEW in April 2022 for an Elevation taping, where she teamed with Emi Sakura and The Bunny in a loss to Anna Jay, Ruby Soho and Skye Blue. She also mentioned a lot of drama backstage during her time in AEW and many believed she was talking about Britt Baker.

According to Sean Ross Sap in the latest Fightful Select Q&A, more details were given regarding the accusations made by LuFisto. It was stated that there is truth to what was said.


“Yes, there is truth to it. There is somebody that tried to hold her (LuFisto) down, that talked trash about her. There’s a lot of trash talking within that locker room. It’s something that I’ve constantly heard about over the last couple of years.

“I can’t point fingers and say who. A lot of people pointed the finger at Britt and said, ‘You talked trash about Thunder Rosa’. Listen, there’s a lot of it that goes on there.

“I will say this about Britt – Britt experienced some stuff that nobody should ever have to go through, and I understand why she’s got her guard up in that sense.

“But the LuFisto thing – LuFisto, among people that work with her and have worked with her, she just holds some of the highest respect. And there was a not-so-good situation that I am of the belief emerged from a ton of miscommunication that didn’t help her out when she came in there.

“Because it was supposed to be for a lot more than what she was brought in and ended up doing. At least as it was relayed to me and relayed to her, and I mean this from the April show last year where she worked Dark (Elevation), she worked like a three-minute six-woman tag.

“There had been people that I talked to that claimed they were going to be looking at her as a potential coach, and then when I followed up and said, ‘Oh, what happened there?’, they’re like, ‘I don’t know’, and then I was told no meeting happened, anything like that.”

Britt Baker also hit back at a hater who criticized her match on AEW Dynamite this week. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for Baker as we head towards the All In event next month.
