Britt Baker says winning the AEW Women’s Championship would be validation for her work.
Britt Baker recently spoke with Steven Muehlhausen from DAZN ahead of AEW Double Or Nothing this weekend. Baker will challenge Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s Championship, and while she’s one of the biggest stars in wrestling right now, her impressive run has gone without a title win. Baker explained what finally winning the women’s title would mean to her, showing that she’s the best after talking about it for so long.
“It’s validation is all it is because I’ve talked all the s— in the book, and I feel I back it up. That’s controversial. Some people can say no, I’m not the best, and I just have a big mouth. But if I have a championship title belt around my waist, arguments over. I’m the best of the best. I can say it. I can show it. It’s done.”
Baker was asked if it bothers her that some fans might not put her in the ‘best’ category or consider her a face of AEW because she’s a woman, but she said she doesn’t really care about their opinions.
“I don’t really care if I’m being honest. The fans, we need them. We need them to survive. They’re the heartbeat of professional wrestling. But their logic sometimes is very faulty and flawed. I just got off a podcast with Bully Ray (WWE Hall of Fame wrestler), who says I’m the face of AEW, and I take his opinion way more than I do from Joe Schmo in the second row in Chicago. We’re professionals here. You and I have a professional conversation. I don’t care what anybody says. I know I’m the face of AEW. I don’t care about any men that are involved in this topic. Right now, it’s me. It might not always be me. It sure wasn’t me before. But right now, the face of AEW has D.M.D. after her name.”
