Britt Baker wants to continue to boost the profile of AEW.
Baker is arguably the face of the women's division in AEW as a former AEW Women's Champion and the first-ever Women's Owen Hart Foundation Tournament winner. She's currently involved in the AEW Women's Title program with reigning champion Thunder Rosa, Toni Storm, and Jamie Hayter.
Speaking at San Diego Comic Con (via Absolute Geek Podcast), Baker discussed what's next for AEW as they continue to grow.
"I think just being a part of anything that’s brand new, there’s ups and downs, and it is stressful because you want to be part of something successful, not something that’s a failure. But now that we’ve gotten past that, it’s like this sigh of relief like, 'Okay, thank god, we’re doing it, it’s working.' Now I think what’s next for us is, for most people in the world, WWE is the number one wrestling promotion. You can pick out anybody on the street, they know what WWE is. Not everybody knows what AEW is yet, and I wanna get to a point where it is super mainstream and we do more entertainment and mainstream crossovers so that they can see one of our stars and they go, ‘Oh, that person’s a wrestler from AEW,’ not just, ‘who is that person?’ So I think that’s what’s next for us is just growing massively because we have a successful show, we have a great show, we have great leadership, we have great wrestlers, we have a great product. Let’s get more eyes on it because it’s so great and we should have more eyes on it," she said.
Baker's partner Jamie Hayter is set to challenge Thunder Rosa for the AEW Women's Championship at AEW Battle of the Belts III.
