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 also has a dual career as a legit dentist, but it appears she took a step back from that career for now.

As many fans are aware by now, Britt Baker isn’t only just a pro wrestler as she is a legitimate dentist, earning her certification at the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine.

While speaking on the Jon Chuckery Show, the former AEW Women’s World Champion talked about her decision to take “a small step back’ from dentistry over the past few months.

With the ever changing and every growing schedule with AEW, it was getting really hard to manage because I don’t want to be calling off last minute at the dental office all the time if Tony [Tony Khan] needs me for something for a TV taping or to go do media or an event.

I hold myself accountable to be available for those types of events because I’m one of the faces of AEW and I want to be available for everything like that.”


“Unfortunately, that means…I don’t want to say closing the door, but I’m definitely taking a step back from dentistry.”

“It’s not fair to be canceling on patients all the time if something else popped up and it’s not fair to the staff. My staff is absolutely fabulous at the dental office, I love them to death.”

“I’m still there a few times a month to check in on my old patients to make sure everyone is okay. I don’t really accept any new patients just because it was getting really tricky to navigate the waters of fans coming into the dental office and not really knowing who is there to be a patient and who is there to get an autograph and picture.”

“It’s fun, but at the same time, it gets frustrating for my staff when they are there to see patients and keep a successful practice going.”

Britt Baker also hit back at a hater who criticized her match on AEW Dynamite last month. Regardless, we will have to wait and see what AEW will have planned for Baker as we head towards the All In event on August 27th.
