Dr Britt Baker DMD from AEW joins Busted Open Radio to promote AEW’s Double or Nothing PPV on Sunday. Co-host Bully Ray asked Baker if she believed she was now the “face of AEW,” as he believed in it, and Baker believed she was.
“Yes,” Baker replied. “Maybe not at first, but now I have made myself completely undeniable. You can’t turn on the channel when I’m on TV, you listen to every word that comes out of my mouth. I demand a presence, and that’s basically what the company stands for. When you need someone you can’t look away from, and that’s what I am.
“It’s because I believe 100% in every word that comes out of my mouth. I’m not racking my brains to think of something, I’m not telling a lie. I tell you the truth of the gospel and what I believe in my heart and soul. So when you are so confident in what you are saying, you don’t look away. You tell him exactly what you think.
Baker is famous for being both a professional wrestler and a practicing dentist. She admitted it bothered her when people say she didn’t engage in wrestling because of it, when she thinks it makes her work harder in both professions.
“I get a little pissed off when people point out that I have two careers and use it against me and say ‘oh, she’s not engaged in wrestling,’ Baker said. ‘No, I am. , I’m also very committed to another career. I don’t have any free time. So when the wrestlers are home for the week, enjoying time with their families, going out, going to parties, I work. I just don’t have any free time. I spend as much time, probably double that, on pro wrestling as anyone else. And that’s why I’m the face of AEW. “
Bully asked her if she currently wanted to be a professional wrestler more than she wanted to practice dentistry. Baker was clear she had enough time for both, but plans to focus more on wrestling for now.
“Today more than ever, I definitely feel that,” Baker said. “I always say dentistry keeps me grounded, because the wrestling world we live in is crazy, we have our alter egos and everything. So dentistry keeps me grounded, but dentistry I have it forever. I can be a dentist at 70 if I want to. Now is the time for me to be a professional wrestler. So I consider myself a full time wrestler and a part time dentist. I can only work three days a week at the office with our commute schedule. So I think now is the time to focus my life as much as possible 100% on wrestling. But I’m superhuman, so I have over 100% in the tank. So I have a percentage left to give to dentistry.
Baker also opened up about his Lights Out match with Thunder Rosa in March. Not only does she think the game put her on the map, but she thinks it proved she was ready to become the AEW Women’s World Champion after two years chasing gold.
“I think everyone who is a professional wrestler, a goal is to be respected,” Baker said. “By your peers, by the people you admire, by the fans, you have to be respected. And I feel like I got a lot of respect from people in that game. And it’s better than any championship title you can win. That being said, I think this game was the last stepping stone I needed to prove I’m ready for the title. It’s my time and I’ll get the title.
