Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D has achieved her goal of claiming the top spot in the Women’s Rankings as her own, which of course means that after weeks of declaring them fraudulent or biased, Baker now heralds them as “profound, respected, and logical”. Regardless of the transparent inconsistencies in her statements, it is unarguable that Baker deserves her spot sitting atop the division.
She stands at 8-1 in the singles division for 2021, her one official loss coming at the hands of Nyla Rose during the Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament, and Britt has been victorious in five of her last six singles bouts. She is spot on when talking about her merchandise, her general effect on viewing numbers, and thus her insistence on being the face of the women’s division holds merit. The only thing missing from the Good Doctor’s portfolio is the AEW Women’s World Title that Hikaru Shida has now held for almost 350 days, and clearly that is the next mountain she looks to climb. Baker has already gone above and beyond operating as both doctor and wrestler, so her aims to add champion is consistent with this drive to be at the top of everything she does. Baker’s path to challenging Shida will continue this week on DYNAMITE: BLOOD AND GUTS, and no doubt the AEW Women’s World Champion will have a close eye on this match!
