In an interview with Scott Fishman for TV Insider, Baker was questioned about the sign seen on AEW Dynamite. She acknowledged that compelling matches often arise from well-developed storylines that fans are emotionally invested in. However, Baker expressed that lately, the women’s division hasn’t received as much time and investment due to several factors, including injuries.
Furthermore, Baker discussed her observations regarding fan support on social media, noting that negativity seems to dominate rather than encouragement and support.
“I see both sides to that because I completely agree. The absolute best matches that come out of professional wrestling come out of storylines you are so invested in. There are weeks and months that tell this beautiful story. It’s something we haven’t been able to invest as much time in the women’s division lately. Again, there are many factors. Injuries, this and that. I definitely want to get to the point where we can get some solid storytelling with the women. At the same time the fans who hold signs that say to book the women’s division better, that’s great. Then when I go on Twitter it doesn’t echo that. I don’t see the same support. It’s I hate these two wrestlers. This match was too long. This match was too short. If all you see about women’s wrestling is all negative online, it doesn’t add up to what they are preaching. If you want the women to be booked better, support the women,” Baker said.
