Britt Baker discusses her current standing in AEW.
Since she debuted in AEW as the first woman signed to the company, Baker has had a steady presence on television that only increased when she became the "Role Model" during the pandemic. Whether she was the AEW Women's Champion or not, Baker was featured almost every week in a match or segment.
As the division has grown with new additions and others rising, Baker still has a consistent television presence alongside Jamie Hayter, but admits things have been "backed off."
“Right now I’m not having weekly matches, I’m not having weekly promos, so it’s a little bit backed off," Baker told FoxSportsAU. "I try not to bother him and bug him (Khan) because there are 100s of other wrestlers texting him on a daily basis, I’m sure. But for example when I was champion, I was texting with Tony several times a week with different ideas, and he was sending me his ideas, and he’s very straight-up with me. He’d tell me ‘Britt, that’s not a good idea, I don’t like that’, or ‘hey, let’s make this better’, and I really appreciate that from my boss. Honesty is one of the most helpful fools anyone can ever give you when you’re learning your craft, especially when you’re learning TV professional wrestling. I couldn’t ask for a better boss than Tony Khan and he has helped me so much growing as a performer, as a wrestler, as a human being. He’s really a special guy and we’re lucky to work for him.”
Hayter, who aligned with Baker on the first episode of AEW Rampage in August 2021, is the reigning AEW Women's Champion and is set to defend the title against Ruby Soho and Saraya at AEW Revolution.
