Ruby Soho Reflects On AEW Grand Slam Match, Talks Working With Dr. Britt Baker

Ruby Soho recently spoke with Denise Salcedo of Instinct Culture for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

During the discussion, the AEW women’s division competitor spoke about the AEW Dynamite Grand Slam main event against Dr. Britt Baker and more.

The full interview was recently released on the official YouTube channel, which you can check out below, along with some of the highlights.

On being part of the AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam main event along with Britt Baker: “It meant so much more than just a really big match, or even a title match. It meant to me that AEW trusted me and that to me means the world because I want to be able to grab the ball and for them to never see it again. I want to be able to be part of these milestones, to be a part of these things. On a show that has Bryan Danielson and Kenny Omega in it and for us to be the main event was huge to me. I still have a hard time being on the same flyers as them, seeing like CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Kenny Omega and then there’s me. It’s still mind blowing to me, I still can’t wrap my head around it. But it was an honor honestly, this was a historical AEW Dynamite…I felt spoiled, I felt honored, I felt pressure, I felt all of these things. So the fact that I was trusted enough to be in that position meant the world to me and I really felt in that moment that I had to deliver.

I needed to prove to myself that I could still do it, that this is where I belonged and this where I am supposed to be, and it was a lot of proving to myself and proving to them (the fans) that is why you’re happy to see me and to Tony ‘this is why you allowed me to part of this historial Dynamite.’ So It was a lot of proving.”

On working with Baker: “Brit has continuously impressed me, over the last few years, just watching her. I knew her when she first broke in on the independents when she was just bright-eyed-bushy-tailed-ready-to-learn-everything and super new to the game. Seeing her growth over the last few years has been incredibly impressive, but stepping into the ring with her and going toe-to-toe on the mic with her is a completely different story, I was even more impressed . I was seeing a completely different woman in front of me than I had seen years ago. The amount of growth that she’s done is very impressive. There’s a reason why she is our champion at this moment. I was very impressed with her but also at the same time I had to remind myself, “I’ve been doing this for a while and I knew her when she was that like new girl on the block’ So I had to give myself yet another pep talk {laughs} and be like ‘okay you’re meant to be here. If you want to make it here you gotta roll with the big dogs.’”
