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 often comes under fire for her opinion and it appears she explained her previous comments about WWE not hiring indie talent.
During the Great American Bash Premium Live Event, a Twitter user mentioned a previous comment made by Baker, where she had stated that a successful roster cannot be built by training models and athletes to all wrestle a certain way. That account named the likes of Roxanne Perez, Tiffany Stratton, Cora Jade, Rhea Ripley, and Bianca Belair as those who trained in WWE’s Performance Center.
The doctor took to Twitter and decided to fire back at the tweet, making it clear her comment was in support of independent wrestlers and not criticizing WWE’s Performance Center.
“The quote is out of context and incomplete. It’s from 2021 when WWE stated they would stop signing indie wrestlers and focus on pro-atheltes,” said Baker. “I think most pro wrestlers would tell you how valuable the independent wrestling circuit was to their development, and multiple girls you listed all came from the indies. It wasn’t a dig at the PC; it was in support of independent wrestling.”
WWE NXT has certainly produced many top class female Superstars over the year and the future is bright for those who remain on NXT even now. Regardless, many fans came to Britt Baker’s defence and that’s what matters.
