Britt Baker Wins Women’s Owen Hart Foundation Tournament

Britt Baker

Britt Baker made it a family affair in the Owen Hart Foundation Tournament after she claimed victory, shortly after her partner Adam Cole had done the same.

At AEW Double or Nothing, Ruby Soho was unable to banish the ghosts of Arthur Ashe Stadium as she once again lost out to Britt Baker.

After being played to the ring by Rancid, Soho was roared into action by the Las Vegas crowd. Not that Baker wasn’t also without her supporters being played to the ring by Fozzy’s Rich Ward, as duelling chants reigned down from the stands.

Back in the ring, neither woman was able to sustain any kind of advantage with the momentum swinging back and forth. Baker eventually zeroed in on Soho’s ribs which did bring her success, although with the stakes so high, there was no way Soho was going to quit.

As the match barrelled towards a conclusion, it appeared that Soho might score the win, locking Baker in a Sharpshooter, but the former AEW Women’s Champion made her way to the ropes.

Soho attempted to follow up quickly with a Victory Roll but Baker countered into a pin of her own to grab the win. Following the closing bell, Baker helped Soho back to her feet.

After her victory, Britt Baker headed up the ramp where she was joined by her partner Adam Cole who had earlier won the men’s tournament. To get the presentation underway, Martha Hart, Owen Hart’s widow, was escorted to the stage by AEW President Tony Khan.

Hart then gave an emotional speech paying tribute to her husband, the fans and AEW for once again celebrating Owen’s life and career.

Both Cole and Baker were presented with pink title belts as the Owen Hart Trophy sat in the background.
