The AEW Owen Hart Foundation Tournament’s “Jokers” both competed on the May 18 episode of Dynamite from Houston, and unlike the men’s surprise, the women’s was a familiar face.
Maki Itoh wasn’t just making her return to AEW, she was facing off with her tag partner from Revolution last year — Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. The former Women’s champ welcomed Itoh back with a hug, then expected the hardheaded youngster to lay down for her.
No go, Britt.
Itoh pushed the dentist, but like so many other’s, eventually tapped to Lockjaw.
