Britt Baker Asks Fans To Not Change The Channel If They Want AEW's Women's Division To Thrive, Says COVID-19 And Injuries Ravaged Their Roster"

Dr. Britt Baker DMD hears your concerns about the women's division in AEW.

The division was ravaged this year, and has led to some frustrations among fans that believe it hasn't been showcased properly. In a new interview with UPROXX, Baker addressed those concerns.

"Yeah, I definitely think it’s something the company is working on. You know, and we got hit hard—our women’s division, because of the COVID outbreak. Half our roster is international talent, so we immediately didn’t have access to any of those women. Then Kris Statlander got hurt, and I got hurt. And there’s only so much time on AEW Dynamite to start with. I know there are plans to grow the women’s division, but at the same time we need help from the fans at home too! We can’t have the women’s segments being the lowest rated or the lowest views each week. Because at the end of the day it’s a business, and AEW needs ratings," Baker said.

As for how fans can help the AEW Women's division grow, Baker has some friendly advice for them -- keep watching, so All Elite Wrestling knows you want to see them. 

"It’s no secret we’re in a war every Wednesday night with NXT, so we need the ratings up. So for the fans that are so encouraging and saying “We want more women, we want more women!” that’s great, but please don’t turn the channel when the women are on TV then! We want everybody to be watching the segments and cheering us on from home," said Baker.
