With Britt Baker becoming one of the cornerstones of AEW’s Women’s division in recent months, it just seems right to take a look back at her career.
Baker made her debut back in 2015 during an International Wrestling Cartel event, teaming up with Andrew Palace in a winning effort against Dylan Bostic and Ray Lyn. The following year Baker went on to appear on Monday Night Raw in a jobber capacity where she lost in a squash match to Nia Jax.
On December 10th 2016, Baker became the inaugural International Wrestling Cartel Women’s Champion by defeating April Sera, Marti Belle, and Sonya Strong in a 4-corners match. She would drop the title to LuFisto during July of 2017.
Baker then went on to appear at AEW’s ‘ALL IN’ in 2018, wrestling Madison Rayne, Chelsea Green, and Tessa Blanchard in a 4-corners survival match which was won by Blanchard. In October of 2018, Baker won the International Wrestling Cartel Women’s title for a second time, defeating LuFisto and Ray Lyn in a triple threat match before losing it to Katie Arquette a month later.
On January 2nd 2019, Baker was announced as the first woman to sign with All Elite Wrestling. She made her in-ring debut for AEW during their first PPV ‘Double Or Nothing’, where she defeated Nyla Rose, Kylie Rae and Awesome Kong in a 4-corners match. During the next event in July of 2019, she teamed with Riho against Bea Priestley and Shoko Nakajima. During the match, Baker unfortunately suffered a concussion due to a kick from Priestley which then led to a short feud between them. The feud came to a climax at the ‘Full Gear’ PPV in November of 2019 when she defeated Priestley in singles action during the pre-show.
Baker went on to turn heel during the January 22nd edition of AEW Dynamite in 2020, when she began to berate Tony Schiavone after a victory against Priscilla Kelly. In May of 2020, Baker then suffered a leg injury during a tag team match. While out injured, Baker continued to regularly appear on AEW television, and during this time Baker began feuding with Big Swole. Baker then returned to action at the ‘All Out’ PPV, facing Big Swole in a cinematic ‘Tooth and Nail’ match which was taped at her dental office. The match saw Big Swole pick up the victory.
In November of 2020, Baker debuted a new talk show segment on AEW Dark called ‘The Waiting Room’. The waiting room segment has since made its debut on AEW Dynamite, where Cody Rhodes appeared on the show.
Oh – and did I forget to mention, that not only is Britt Baker a professional wrestler – but she is also a DENTIST. Just in case AEW forgot to mention it (again).
