As seen during Sunday night’s AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view event, Britt Baker defeated Hikaru Shida to win the AEW Women’s Championship. During her post-show media scrum, Baker commented on the “harsh” reaction she received early in her career with AEW, and more. She said,
“Of course I have mixed feelings about it because there was a lot of harsh criticism early on, and that’s fine. Maybe some people were right and maybe I wasn’t ready, but I learned how to be a TV wrestler and a TV entertainer in front of the world. That was my growing process and everybody got to see it. Some of those fans [have been around for the whole journey], that is why they changed their tune because they got to grow with me and now I am one of the best women’s wrestlers on the planet.”
During tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Baker will be holding a “Championship Celebration”.
