Top AEW Star Hoping To Make The Company ‘More Mainstream’ AEW

Former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker has been the top star of AEW’s Women’s Division since the company’s inception in 2019.

Along with being the top star of the division, her and her boyfriend are the top stars of the new AEW All Access show, taking a behind the scenes look at the company.

Speaking to Jim Varsallone, Britt explained that she wants to help the company grow more mainstream, saying that she has been auditioning for roles outside the company.

She said:

“I really want to help grow AEW, the audience, more for the mainstream crowd, because I think with the professional wrestling fans, the diehard, we’ve got them. They know our show, they love our show, and they watch every week.

“But I want to grow our product to people who maybe have never heard of All Elite Wrestling or just don’t know it exists. I’ve been taking acting classes and I’m auditioning for roles.

“I’ve been very public that my all-time favorite show is ‘Dancing With The Stars’ which my co-worker Chris Jericho was on at one point and I would love to be on that show one day.”
