“Those Are My Two Role Models” – AEW Sensation Britt Baker Wants to Face Bayley and Sasha Banks
Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. has been enjoying her run as the AEW Women’s champion. She defeated Hikaru Shida at AEW’s PPV Double or Nothing in an entertaining match. Recently, she spoke about who else she would like to face in the ring.
Britt Baker was a guest attendee at the “Steel City Comic Con”. She chatted with her fans who asked her many different questions. One of the more interesting questions asked was who she would like to face from other companies.
Unhesitantly, Baker took the names of Sasha Banks and Bayley from WWE. She credits them for laying the groundwork for women wrestlers of the present day. Her words were,
“Oh, speaking of the devil [Baker referring to a previous comment about her hugging Izzy at the Double Or Nothing media scrum], probably Bayley or Sasha [Banks]. It’d have to be one of them because those are two of my role models that I watched when I was first training to be a wrestler, so that’s something — but I mean that’s five years ago so that’s when I was training, they were main-eventing NXT TakeOver so that was when the tides were turning, they kind of paved the wave for my generation of wrestling even though they’re still my generation, they came before me.” (H/t PostWrestling for transcriptions)

Britt Baker opens up about her injury
During the Q&A, she also talked about some of the injuries she dealt with last year. She said that last year was rough for her as she had a really bad concussion, which took her out for a good month.
Baker also mentioned her broken nose, stating how it took from her in-ring career. However, none of her injuries were as mentally debilitating as her broken leg.
Surprisingly, Baker clarified it was the best thing that ever happened to her. She still got to stay on TV and do promos and video packages. So eventually, the worst injury became the best thing for her career, in her opinion.
