Britt Baker Explains How Cody Rhodes Helped Her With Heel Turn AEW

Britt Baker has explained how Cody Rhodes helped her understand how to be a heel following her turn.

Baker came into All Elite Wrestling as a babyface, but her career truly turned around following her heel turn at the start of 2020.

Speaking with Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, the former AEW Women’s World Champion explained that Cody Rhodes, along with Tony Khan and others, helped her understand how to be a heel.

Baker said:

“When I first turned heel he really took me under his wing and helped me map out how to tell a promo or how to do a promo or how to come up with bullet points. I went to a lot of people for help. Tony Khan helped me so much. Chris Jericho, I used to call him and just on delivery alone—Chris Jericho is a big guy on ‘it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it.’ I’d get help from there.

But when it came to Cody, coming up with the actual structure of what I was gonna say, Cody was there. He would help me. He would write a whole list of bullet points and I would get to twist it and turn it to how I would want to say it. But I can’t thank him enough. He was sitting in Gorilla every time I cut a promo or a match, and would tell me how to fix something, what was good, what wasn’t. He was always on. You can fault Cody for many things, you can’t say he wasn’t honest and that he’s not passionate about professional wrestling. ‘Cause he is.”

As previously mentioned, Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. recalled the backstage reaction to Cody Rhodes’ AEW departure.

Baker will make her return on tonight’s AEW Dynamite from her hometown of Pittsburgh in an Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament Qualifier against Danielle Kamea.
