Britt Baker had been due to wrestle on the January 25th episode of Dynamite but was seemingly pulled from the show in the hours leading up to the event.
On the show, Baker was scheduled to take on Toni Storm and Ruby Soho in a Three-Way-Match but it was announced that she wouldn’t compete due to injury. With Baker out of action, Storm and Soho met in singles action instead.
However, despite being removed from the match, Baker still appeared on the show, serving as a distraction as Soho pinned Strom following Destination Unknown. This led to even more speculation over Baker’s injury and how long she might be out of action.
Britt Baker Injury Not Thought To Be Serious
Speaking on Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer noted that the former AEW Women’s Champion won’t be out of the ring for long.
“Yeah, so Britt had an injury. The way it was described to me…I don’t know what the injury was, is that she’s not hurt badly, and she possibly could have wrestled, but it would have been a bad idea for her to wrestle,”
Bryan Alvarez noted that Baker has wrestled with a broken wrist in the past, and reiterated that she will be back soon.
“Yeah, broken wrist [in the past]….I heard it wasn’t serious. It doesn’t look like it was a knee or anything. Whatever it is, she’s not expected to be out of action for any length of time, is what I was told,”
Britt Baker was most recently in action on the January 11th episode of Dynamite when she teamed with Jamie Hayter to defeat Saraya and Toni Storm. The victory was mired in controversy after Hikaru Shida threw a kendo stick into the ring.
A week later, Storm and Saraya turned heel following an attack on Willow Nightingale. Storm had defeated Nightingale after assistance from Saraya. Once the beatdown was underway, Ruby Soho who has been teaming with Nightingale, ran down to make the save, setting up the planned match on January 25th.
Although Baker appeared on the January 17th edition of AEW Dark, the episode was taped back in December.
