Britt Baker talks about the next milestone for AEW's women.
Britt Baker was the first woman signed to AEW. That is a fact she proudly boasts whenever she can. Baker is also one of the first two women to headline Dynamite and even headlined the inaugural AEW Rampage.
Now, Britt Baker is talking about the next milestone for AEW's growing women's division, and to no surprise, she wants to see the women headline an AEW pay-per-view in the future, as she tells In The Kliq's Baby Huey.
"We're just on such a forward momentum right now. The women's division, the wrestling, the storylines, everything has just been so great. We have another belt n ow. We have the Women's TBS Title that Jade Cargill just won. It's more, really, growing so quickly. The Women's Division was under fire pretty aggressively at first, but just how quickly we've turned the tide, just like taking all that criticism and kind of threw it at everyone's face. So, moving forward, I just want to keep building our women's division. How cool would it be for a women's match to be the main event of a pay-per-view sometime? Just to keep growing in that sense. Making sure that the women's matches are just as important, which they are, as you see in our booking, as all of the men's matches. I mean, I've been fortunate enough to main event several AEW shows now and it's not so much of a marquee event when that does happen. It's just, 'There's a good match coming up, and it should be the main event.'"
Britt Baker recently had the experience of headlining the first AEW Battle of the Belts event on January 8. The event performed well in terms of viewership. Learn more here.
