Britt Baker is slowly but surely making her way to the ring, and is recovering well from a concussion that she suffered during a tag team match at AEW’s Fight for the Fallen. Now, Baker is nearly ready to jump back into the ring, and ready to take her shot at the AEW Women’s Championship in the process.
Speaking to TV Insider about the injury she suffered, Baker revealed that she actually had to visit a special doctor because she had vision problems after the concussion. “They had me follow up with a neuro-ophthalmologist because I had some post-concussion vision problems,” Baker said. Thankfully, things have cleared up for her, and she’s now been working on in-ring training en route to a return.
“Since then my vision is fine. I feel great. I feel awesome. This week was the first week that I have been doing some very simple bumps and rolls in the ring. I feel good. I’m hoping any day now to have a hundred percent clearance and return to the ring.”
Baker also went on to say that she’s excited for AEW All Out’s Casino Battle Royale, and wants the AEW women’s roster to be the talk of the town. “We want to be the top of the game,” Baker said. “We want to be the women’s roster everyone is talking about. There is pressure more than anything, but pressure is good. If we weren’t nervous and had this feeling it would mean we didn’t care. Right now personally I’ve been trying to slowly take it all in as much as I can. I know it’s going to pick up really soon, so I’m trying to just relax and smell the roses.”
Needless to say, Baker is ready to get back into the mix, and ready to compete for the title. With All Elite Wrestling quickly ramping up to its television debut, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Baker be right in the middle of title contention when the times come.
