Britt Baker says the control is all in the hands of the audience in All Elite Wrestling.
Britt Baker went from being the top babyface as the first signed woman in AEW to the dastardly villain. Now, as AEW Women’s World Champion, she received a raucous ovation when she won the title.
Britt Baker has had a roller coaster ride with the audience of AEW but she says in a new interview with the New York Daily News that the audience has all the power.
“The fans write the show. They dictate what happens next,” she told The News. “That feud with me and Thunder Rosa could have gone two months if the fans didn’t like it. But they loved it so they ended up getting a main-event, lights-out match that was arguably one of the best matches of the year.”
She concluded, “The fans are on board for everything because they just want to get out of their house and stop watching wrestling on TV. They want to be there with us and we’re going to ride that wave for a little bit.”
AEW will head to New York City for the first time in September from Arthur Ashe Stadium in Queens, New York. Learn more here.
