Britt Baker has become one of the biggest stars in AEW ever since the promotion became a weekly show back in October 2019.
The real-life dentist was the first woman signed to the All Elite Wrestling brand and it’s obvious that the company has some big plans for her, but even though Britt has had an interesting first few months as part of the AEW Women’s Division, one of the most memorable moments of the past year was seen as #TheBrittBakerChallenge
Britt was in the audience for NXT Takeover: War Games back in November so that she could watch her boyfriend Adam Cole win his Championship match, but she wasn’t supposed to be seen on WWE TV.
Baker recently appeared on the Talk is Jericho podcast where she revealed that Triple H apologized to her after the match and stated that the head of the production didn’t know who she was, which is why she was shown in the crowd.
“The second time, I knew Adam Cole was winning the title so I definitely wanted to go, and I didn’t want to just sit backstage and watch it on a TV,” Baker said. “Is there any way I can watch it? They were doing these crazy cage match bumps. All kinds of stuff that were terrifying. No, I want to be out there, and they said yup absolutely. I was texting with the one security guard [who said], ‘We got you covered. Don’t worry.’
“So I’m in my seat. Everything’s good, and for his match, they move me. They said, ‘hey, you’ll be fine here because you’re behind the commentary table. Because the match is in the cage, the camera is not gonna come out here at all.’ To me, I was like OK that makes sense, and it wasn’t until the very end, he took this disgusting bump at the top of the cage. I don’t even know where the camera was because I was looking in the ring. I didn’t even know until I got backstage in gorilla. I went to check in on Adam, and Triple H came up right away saying, ‘sorry, we didn’t mean for that to happen.’ I’m kind of like wait, what? He’s like, ‘yeah, we got you on camera with your reaction to the bump. I’m so sorry. They didn’t know.’ The head production didn’t know who you were. Do I believe that? I don’t know, but he was super apologetic to me, super nice. Him and Stephanie both said we’re so sorry about that. I hope you don’t get in trouble, which Tony didn’t care at all because, after that night, I was the top Google search of that show, the entire NXT show was Britt Baker because of that one little blip they showed on TV,” via WrestlingInc.
As part of the same interview, Baker also revealed that she asked either The Young Bucks or Tony Khan’s permission to go to NXT to watch her boyfriend before she made the plan, and his response is quite interesting.
“I’ve always asked ahead of time, whether it’s the Bucks or Tony, ‘is it OK if I go?’ It was to the point where Tony said, ‘stop asking me. Of course, you can go. Why would we not want you to support your boyfriend? It’s not like a cult. It’s not like you can’t go there. It’s fine.’ So I was just sitting there in my comp ticket section, and the camera was nowhere near us at any point in time, this was very early on before we were on TV or anything.”
