A couple weeks back at TakeOver: WarGames, Adam Cole took an Air Raid Crash from Tommaso Ciampa. No big deal, right? Normally, no, but this one was off the top of a cage. And what got even more coverage than the high risk spot was the fact Cole’s girlfriend Britt Baker was there to watch it happen. WWE showed her reaction on the live stream, which is noteworthy because Baker is one of the most heavily pushed women’s wrestlers in AEW - NXT’s direct competitor.
Triple H addressed the moment, writing it off to miscommunication. That would have been that, but then on the latest episode of AEW Dynamite, as Nyla Rose was powerbombing whoever she could get her hands on, All Elite parodied that moment during a split screen commercial break.
Thus, the #BrittBakerChallenge was born.

But now, I think it’s time to shut it down.

When the WWE star the AEW star was concerned about when she was shown on WWE TV poses like the AEW star after AEW poked fun at her appearing on WWE TV, anything after that is just silly.
What’s that you say?
It was already silly? And we love silly?
