Baker commented on the crowd chanting ‘DMD’ after her match, saying she worked hard for her title, and it’s a nice crossover of both of her careers:
“That gave me goosebumps. For me, it’s such a personal accomplishment. When I hear the announcer call me ‘Dr. Britt Baker DMD’ when I walk down the ring, I worked so hard for that. It gets to carry over to both of my worlds and it’s so refreshing and very self-empowering.”
With her win, Baker said she hopes she’s now in line for the eventual AEW Women’s Championship, and said Double Or Nothing was just a taste of what fans can expect from their women’s division. She said despite the triple threat turning into a four-way match at the last minute, she tried to prepare as much as she could. Awesome Kong’s appearance was still a big surprise, but Baker said it was still an honor to share the ring with a legend like Kong.
“Yeah, that’s something you don’t expect to see every day. This gigantic monster coming at you down to the ring with not even a smile on her face ready to wreak havoc. Like I said earlier, it’s amazing to share the first women’s match in AEW history with a legend like Awesome Kong.”
Do you feel the pressure of being at All In helped in this experience?
“Sure. I said coming back from All In, it was a blessing and a curse. I had that exposure that maybe some of my opponents didn’t have. I also felt like I had something to prove, like ‘oh you were in that match, let’s see how you do against a whole new flock of girls.’
