Mick Foley has responded to Dr. Britt Baker’s promo on AEW Dynamite where she name-checked Foley and said she doesn’t need praise from him.
One week after a brutal and bloody Lights Out Unsanctioned match with Thunder Rosa, Baker had a lot to say on AEW Dynamite.
In an interview with her close friend Tony Schiavone, Baker ran down the crowd, Thunder Rosa, and the wrestling legends that have praised the Unsanctioned match.
An exasperated Britt Baker said:
“That’s it? That is the warm welcome you give me for the hell I went through last week? You all are as dumb, delusional, and disrespectful as Thunder Rosa. Thunder Rosa, you should be thanking me every day that you wake up. You should be thanking me because you will forever be remembered now. You got to be a part of the history that I wrote with my own blood! And then you had the audacity to stand here in my company, in my division and say that you put the women on the map.”
“Then why is everybody talking about me? And I don’t need the praise and adoration of all you legends and experts telling me that I’m worthy now, that I’m a star now. Mick Foley, thanks for the thumbs up. Except it took you 20 years to become a hardcore legend and I did it in one night. And that night, when I had 87 thumbtacks in my back and the blood was flowing down into my eyes I’ve never been able to see more clearly.”
“Tony Khan, you’re out here looking for every legend that ever has been, when you have the biggest one right here, standing under your nose. Not only did I make history that night, I put AEW on the map. And those three letters, AEW, come second to the most epic three in all of professional wrestling, DMD.”
WWE Hall Of Famer Mick Foley took to Twitter to respond to Baker’s comments, saying:
“Not going to lie…this comment from @RealBrittBakerstung a little”
