Independent wrestling sensation Britt Baker has been on WWE’s radar for the past few years but finally, she made her debut on NXT as part of the most recent batch of tapings leading up to WWE Evolution but it wasn’t the debut that the real-life dentist was hoping for.
Baker faced former NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler in a one-on-one match but the ending to the match was seemingly premature for the crowd before it was revealed that Baker had suffered a dislocated shoulder.
Baker recently became a qualified dentist but has continued to work on the Independent Circuit in her spare time and was even part of All In where she was in a fatal four-way match but she has been on WWE’s radar for a long time as the girlfriend of Undisputed Era star Adam Cole.
I’ll be out of action the next couple of weeks due to a shoulder injury but I’ll be back in the ring ASAP to break some teeth (and fix them, too!) #DrBaker 😃

Many fans expected Baker to be part of the Mae Young Classic but it appears that she has been brought into NXT a different way and was able to make her debut last night.
There was a lot of interesting angles played out heading into November which is when Takeover will present the second War Games event, but sadly Baker won’t be part of it.

It is unknown how long Baker will be on the sidelines for, but now she has made her in-ring debut for WWE, it will be interesting to see where she pops up next or if she will be made an official part of the Women’s Division on NXT.
Her boyfriend Adam Cole also Tweeted his support to Baker following the injury since it appears that it will keep her on the shelf for a least a couple of months.
Shoulder injuries suck, but you’ll be back soon and better than ever I promise. Wishing a speedy recovery to @RealBrittBaker…hang in there ♥️
