Britt Baker suffered a concussion during her tag team match with Riho against Shoko Nakajima and Bea Priestley on the AEW Fight for the Fallen pre-show last night.
The referee for that match, Aubrey Edwards, tweeted that she had lost an earring in a hurried attempt to get to the back, to which Baker replied that the next pair is on her, and thanked Edwards for taking care of a concussed coworker.
Hurriedly left the venue to take care of a concussed coworker and checked on her every hour of the night. Next pair is on me Ref Aubrey ♥️ https://t.co/L1t4OT28KE

The cause isn’t confirmed, but it’s being suggested the concussion was suffered after this kick to the head from Priestley.
John Thorne, who is the owner of AIW – the promotion Baker trained at – confirmed the concussion on Twitter:
I just spoke to Britt, she for sure suffered a concussion mid match last night and has to follow up with a doctor this week. I wanted to roast her about the wrong corner thing but it sounds like it is a pretty severe one so I guess I’ll let her slide this time.

That tweet was in reference to a moment in the match where Baker tried to tag out to Nakajima instead of Riho.
We would like to wish Baker the very best in her recovery.
