Prior to every pay-per-view offering, AEW presents THE BUY-IN on BRLive, a free opportunity for fans to get a sneak preview of what the night has to offer and experience some great wrestling action. With REVOLUTION 2021, the BUY-IN presents one of the most heated rivalries in all of AEW with Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker once more in competition! Last time out at DYNAMITE: BEACH BREAK, the good doctor was able to defeat Rosa thanks to a bit of nefarious tactics and some Rebel assistance. Then when the brackets for the Women’s World Title Eliminator Tournament were released, one can imagine that Rosa hoped the stars would align for the two women to meet again there but that was not meant to be as Nyla Rose bested Baker in the Semi-Finals before Thunder could get to her.
Good things come to those who wait though, and Rosa will not only get a chance to payback Britt Baker, but also Rebel for her role in assisting Britt throughout. See this won’t be a one-on-one contest, it will be a tag team bout, and Rosa will have the first and former AEW Women’s World Champion Riho at her side!
The dynamic between Riho and Baker is quite an interesting one as the two women have been both ally and foe to one another. They’ve been on the same team on three occasions in the past, but also on opposite sides, just as Britt challenged Riho on two instances while she held the championship. The first time in a straight up singles contest that marked Riho’s first defense, and then later as a part of a four way back at DYNAMITE: HOMECOMING on 1/1/20. Obviously Riho was victories in those outcomes, but the Britt Baker who she fought back then is a far cry from the woman she has (d)evolved into over the last year-plus.
This should be one heated contest, but the Baker camp is already making excuses via Twitter (View Tweet), claiming Rebel’s physical health as an out, so we shall see how this unfolds on Sunday night. Britt Baker and Rebel are due for their comeuppance from Thunder Rosa and she will have it one way or another!
