She did it; Sunday night at DOUBLE OR NOTHING 2021, Dr. Britt Baker accomplished the goal she had set for herself way back when she was the first woman signed by All Elite Wrestling over two years ago. On May 30th, Baker ended the historic 372 day title reign of Hikaru Shida on her ninth defense and began The Era Of D.M.D!
Baker is certainly ecstatic about her new status as the Women’s World Champion, she has every right to be because she worked hard to get to this point, she earned her way to the top of the heap, and now Britt can definitively own that “face of the women’s division” moniker she affixed to herself some time ago. This week on FRIDAY NIGHT DYNAMITE, the Good Doctor will celebrate her championship success live on TNT, but the festivities may be a short-lived as a certain former NWA World Women’s Champion has her eyes once more fixed on Baker now that she’s got the AEW Women’s World Title:
Will fans get to see a rematch of that epic Unsanctioned Lights Out Match down the line? If Thunder Rosa gets her wish, and maintains her top rankings, then this Friday night might be the only chance Dr. Britt Baker gets to celebrate her championship conquest.
Red Velvet vs. The Bunny
As seen on DARK: ELEVATION, The Bunny and Nyla Rose stole a win from Red Velvet and Big Swole thanks to an assist from The Blade and a pair of brass knux he had stashed away. The chance for vengeance comes in short order though as The Bunny must face Red Velvet in a one-on-one contest during FRIDAY NIGHT DYNAMITE!
Both women have looked incredibly impressive in their singles outings, but neither are currently in the top rankings at this moment. Not only does this bout allow an opportunity to settle a score, it is also the kind of match-up that plays well into rankings consideration, which means ever closer to a title fight with the new AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker!
Which of these women will rise to the occasion LIVE on Friday night? Tune into TNT at 10pm EST to find out!
