AEW’s Dr. Britt Baker was part of the latest AEW Dynamite Post-Show where she professed admiration for the former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley.
“We like Bayley,” Baker told host Tony Schiavone. “She’s a role model.”
Baker’s complimentary words for Bayley followed Schiavone and some fans pointing out that both Baker and Bayley had debuted new talk show segments on their respective shows last week.
Baker debuted her new segment, dubbed “The Waiting Room”, during last Wednesday’s episode of Dynamite. Meanwhile, Bayley debuted her own talk show segment, “Ding, Dong, Hello” over on last Friday’s episode of WWE SmackDown.
Though the two women are in different wrestling promotions, this is not the only parallel that fans have seen between them. Both Baker and Bayley have repeatedly claimed to be “role models” for other women in their profession.
Schiavone and some fans pointed out that Baker should maybe be flattered by Bayley “copying” her as “imitation was the best form of flattery,” which prompted Baker to express her appreciation for the WWE star.
No word yet as to who the next guest star for the Waiting Room will be but last week’s debut segment saw Cody Rhodes and Jade Cargill making their appearance to talk to Baker.
