During the Sept. 1 episode of AEW Dynamite, Women’s World champion Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. sent this tweet:
Her best friend Tony Schiavone made his way backstage for Baker’s big announcement. Would it be her boyfriend Adam Cole, who recently became a free agent after his WWE contract ended? Ruby Soho, whose 90 day non-compete just expired and who has been teasing her arrival in a Destination: Unknown? Maybe another person released by The ‘E on June 2, like Buddy Murphy or that hot wife Miro is always going on about?
We should have known it would be something like this from the woman who just revealed Cole’s cavity-free status on social media yesterday...
“One the hottest stars in all of professional wrestling has just signed a long term contract with AEW, guaranteed to keep the ratings sky high. And that name is me.”
#AEW Women's Champion @RealBrittBaker held all the cards in her new contract negotiation. She got @jmehytr & @RebelTanea into Sunday's Casino Battle Royale AND got them a 2-on-1 handicap match against @callmekrisstat this Friday on #AEWRampage at 10/9c on @tntdrama! pic.twitter.com/0zKfITsQ2r— All Elite Wrestling (@AEW) September 2, 2021
It wasn’t all about her. She did use her negotiating position to get Rebel and Jaime Hayter in All Out’s Casino Battle Royale for a Women’s World title shot. Except that was for her too, since she knows Rebel won’t win, and doesn’t think Hayter will turn on her if she does.
Well played, Doctor. Get complete Dynamite results and coverage here.
