Now, speaking to Robbie Fox on My Mom’s Basement, Britt Baker elaborated on her relationship with Jerry Lynn, saying that he has helped her with every aspect of the game and that Jerry has worked on many of the top matches in AEW.

"So specifically within the last year a little bit over a year he has been like my coach, like my main coach. That's who I go to for all my matches, my promos, everything, he has helped me, maybe more than anyone has in the last year specifically with like wrestling and just coming into my own as an in-ring performer. He is a genius. I said in my tweet, he's really one of AEW's secret weapons, and if you rattle off some of your favorite matches in AEW, there's a huge chance that he was a coach or had some sort of hand in it. He's so so good. Everybody loves working with him and he's fun, he just makes wrestling fun. He's very light-hearted, he tells horrible dad jokes all the time, and it's like the horrible dad joke that you need to hear right before you're about to go through the curtain."
