Britt Baker Talks Having Creative Input For Heel Character, Asking Cody For Advice

Britt Baker's heel turn in recent months brought new life to the character on Dynamite and Baker said she is very much enjoying it.

In an interview with Bleacher Report, Baker talked about how she is able to have creative input on her character and said AEW allows her to work on it without anyone else telling her what to do. Baker spoke on how she would sometimes text Cody for advice on how to improve her character, helping her without Cody forcing her to do anything different.

"They really let us have our own creative input," Baker said. "This is my character. The help that I'm asking for isn't given to me as a command. I'm asking for help because I want to be the best version of heel Britt that I possibly can be. Me texting Cody Rhodes late at night saying, 'I was thinking about this. Do you think this is good?' That's just because I want to, not because he's on top of me saying, 'You need to do this character this way,' and, 'You have to say this.' There's so much creative freedom. I think that's why it's so successful, because it's not somebody telling me what to do or how to do it."

In addition, Baker said Cody and AEW President Tony Khan do a good job putting together promos, which helps her as she admits she isn't a strong promo. According to Baker, the system that both Cody and Khan have at making promos is effective, especially for those who do not have much experience doing promos on live television.

"Cody and Tony [Khan] and myself have a really good system with putting together these promos. I've never prided myself as a skilled promo person, so for these to have such good success, it's really cool and it's really rewarding because it's scary when you're not used to going out there and having a mic and it's a major segment on Dynamite TV," Baker said.

Baker appears on AEW Dynamite, which airs every Wednesday on TNT at 8 p.m. ET.
