AEW Women’s World Champion, Dr Britt Baker D.M.D has spoken out on what she see’s as the difference between AEW and NXT.
Speaking to the Daily Star Online, Baker was clear that she has a lot of love for the women of NXT/WWE. But, she also acknowledged the different paths wrestlers in the two companies take, saying this:
“I love the NXT women’s division and am friends with so many of those girls. But, they have a Performance Centre. My Performance Centre was AEW Dynamite, live on Wednesday nights. I was learning as we go…you train in the ring, you cut promos and practices as much as you can, but I don’t have a wrestling ring in my back yard, a television set-up or a hard cam to pan to. So, a lot of what you see on tv was just trial and error because, again we don’t have that Performance Centre.”
Britt Baker was the very first female wrestler signed to AEW, and has been with the company practically since their beginning. She is currently in her first reign as AEW Women’s World Champion, a title she has held for 47 days at the time of writing. She will defend that title at night two of Fyter Fest on next week’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
