AEW WOMEN’S WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D (c) w/ Rebel vs. (#3) Red Velvet
On Wednesday night, the AEW Women’s World Champion returned home to Pittsburgh a champion, greeted by the resounding applause of a jam-packed Petersen Center, with their Terrible Towels spinning overhead! Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D addressed her faithful fans about her impending World Title defense against Red Velvet, the biggest bout of her career save the night she defeated Hikaru Shida at DOUBLE OR NOTHING 2021 to become champion. After all, it’s a World Title defense in her hometown, on the campus where she graduate college, and to say the fans are solidly in the corner of the Good Doctor would be the understatement of the decade.
Red Velvet knows she is coming into this not just as the underdog, but also as the villain in this moment. It’s not a familiar position to this woman who has earned the respect of the fans since her AEW debut last year, but on Friday night, when she comes to the ring for the historic first main event of RAMPAGE, there is no question just who will be receiving the cheers and the boos.
Red Velvet will have to block that all out; the home turf advantage, the fan support for Baker, and just laser focus on her desire to become the AEW Women’s World Champion. She has to forget about the five minute loss to Baker back on September 30th, forget this bout is in “Brittsburgh”, and just wrestle. Wrestle the absolute match of her life, leave it all laying in the ring, and achieve her own dream of becoming a champion on the premiere edition of RAMPAGE. All eyes are on Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D as the defending champion in her hometown, but should Red Velvet shock the world and knock Baker off her pedestal, then those same eyes will be on her as the NEW AEW Women’s World Champion!
