Being the first woman signed by the promotion, Dr. Britt Baker DMD was brought into AEW as the face of the women's division.
Unfortunately, whether it was the lack of connection to the fans or the lack of storytelling in her feuds, things didn't always click for Baker as a babyface. Once she turned heel at the beginning of 2020, she became the face of the division that many thought she could be.
Speaking on Sunday Night's Main Event, Baker knew exactly who to blame for what went wrong during her babyface run.
"I think because I'm probably not a babyface deep down [laughs]. It was just a lot of demons at once and being a dentist and professional wrestler is super inspiring and I have two Plan A careers, but not everybody has that so not everybody wants to hear that every second of the day. I blame [Jim Ross]. With full-blown respect, he really screwed me because he said on every single friggin' episode of Dynamite that I was a dentist 100 times to the point that it wasn't cool anymore. It certainly wasn't my fault, so it's got to be JR's," she joked.
Now when Baker reminds everyone that she's a dentist, fans are upset for all the right reasons.
Following her heel turn, Baker discussed on Talk is Jericho how it was Kenny Omega's idea to turn her heel and Chris Jericho's influence on her character. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
