Good things come to those who wait.
Since the start of the AEW Unrivaled action figure line up, only two women have received action figures. One was Brandi Rhodes and the other was Riho. Britt Baker, the first woman signed to the promotion, has been very outspoken about Jazwares, the company that produces the AEW action figures not releasing one of her while releasing multiple figures for Cody Rhodes.
During a Waiting Room segment on a recent episode of Dynamite, Britt Baker joked that Cody and Brandi Rhodes’ unborn child will have an action figure before she does.
Well, the wait is over.
Jeremy Padawer announced that Britt Baker will receive her first action figure as part of the first series in a new line of figures called “AEW Unmatched.”
Baker was stated have her Waiting Room set in a special 2-pack release. The other person in the release however will not be Reba, Baker's trusty sidekick, or even Tony Schiavone. The person in the 2-pack with Britt Baker was said to be none other than Cody Rhodes himself, receiving yet another action figure variant.
In a quick FAQ put out on Twitter, Jeremy revealed that Cody's dog, Pharaoh will also be part of an upcoming release.
