Britt Baker Reveals Her Opinion On Star Wars Fans: “It’s An Illness”

Dr. Britt Baker and Star Wars fan, Tony Schiavone

AEW’s Dr. Britt Baker explained what she does not do in her spare time in an interview with Busted Open Radio, when she revealed that she is not a fan of Star Wars.

When quizzed how she occupies herself when not wrestling, Baker launched into a surprising diatribe:

“Well, I don’t sit around watching all 30 episodes of Star Wars, that’s for sure. I’m so sick of it. My good buddy, Tony Schiavone and I, we don’t agree with this, we don’t get along about this, but I just can’t for the life of me figure out how people can get into it. I literally tried and I fell asleep within 5 minutes. I can’t get into it.”

Baker also revealed that her training as a clinician meant that she would like to help fans who take their enthusiasm for their obsessions too far:

“This Star Wars stuff is an illness. I don’t get it. I want to understand it because I want to help these people. I’m a physician. I want to know what I can do to help these people, but I can’t figure it out. We gotta have more extensive research done about what’s going on in the minds of these Star Wars freaks, really.”

The 29-year-old concluded her Star Wars criticism by explaining that she and AEW commentator, Tony Schiavone do not see eye to eye on the subject:

“You know what Tony Schiavone told me, he said it perfectly explains the human soul and I almost smacked him across the face. I said listen to yourself, listen to yourself, Tony, oh my God, I can’t believe it.”

You can catch Baker in action each Wednesday night on Dynamite.
