Tony Khan, Britt Baker

Britt Baker recently appeared as a guest on DC 101 with Mike Jones for an in-depth interview to promote her title defense at the AEW Battle of the Belts special event scheduled for this weekend.

During the discussion, the AEW Women's Champion spoke about getting feedback from AEW President Tony Khan, Rey Fenix's injury from this week's AEW Dynamite on TBS debut show, as well as her goals for 2022.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where she touches on these topics with her thoughts.

On getting feedback from Tony Khan: “Getting praises from him is as good as it gets. I appreciate obviously the fans because they’re the heart and soul of professional wrestling, but Tony is the master mind behind everything that we do, so just that he has confidence in me to go out there and carry out his vision and his love for the sport, is a very very cool feeling.”

On Rey Fenix’s injury from Dynamite: “That guy is such a warrior. You see it on TV every week just like everyone else but holy crap that was absolutely brutal. That’s like one of the most gruesome things I’ve ever seen in wrestling so for him to just be in good spirits and he’s okay and he can’t wait to get back in the ring it’s really cool, it’s very admirable.”

On her goals in 2022: “I just want to continue to do elevating women’s wrestling in any possible way that I can in any way that I can. Etch my name in the history book when it comes to the AEW women’s division, that’s what I want because we all rise. When one person rises everyone rises, so I really want to continue. I think the women’s division is absolutely on fire right now especially with the TBS tournament that we just had. You know Jade, new champion, she’s an absolute rock star. Whether I like her or not, that’s undeniable.”
