Britt Baker was sidelined from May to September 2020 with leg injury, just when she was hitting her stride as a heel in AEW.
Fortunately, the injury didn't slow her momentum as Baker remained a highlight of AEW Dynamite with her promos and vignettes. By her side the entire time was Reba, the former Rebel in IMPACT Wrestling. The two formed instant chemistry and Reba has remained loyal to the good Doctor.
Speaking on Sunday Night's Main Event, Baker discussed her pairing with Reba.
"Completely organic. When the pandemic first started, we had to do a lot of vignettes at home. Tony Khan had the idea to start doing Rules of Being a Role Model, so we were filming in the dental office. Rebel, who was a makeup artist for AEW, she was on the set to do my hair and makeup. Then, it was Cody who wrote her into the script and said, 'Hey, let's play around with it and call her Reba.' From there, it just took off. The first time we worked together, it was way too good and so much fun. Just how it is with Tony Schiavone, we just clicked. She's one of my very good friends and is going to be around for a long time," she said.
Baker and Reba now enjoy their own talk show in AEW as The Waiting Room has gone from AEW Dark to AEW Dynamite.
Baker is currently scheduled to face Thunder Rosa at AEW Beach Break.
