Major AEW Heel Turn Confirmed

Major AEW Heel Turn Confirmed AEW

On tonight’s July 3 AEW Dynamite there was a major heel turn seemingly confirmed ahead of the leadup to All In.

After making a return at AEW Forbidden Door, Britt Baker is back in All Elite Wrestling and she spoke to fans for the first time in her Dynamite return tonight.

Explaining that she took time off but acknowledging it wasn’t only her back injury that kept her away from action for 10 months, she would give more details about her absence.

Baker would go on to reveal that she was diagnosed with a transient ischemic attack – referred to as a “mini stroke” – in November 2023 after experiencing numbness in her right arm and seeking medical attention.

She would go on to say that fast forwarding to now, she is medically cleared to compete.

Turning her attention to Mercedes Mone, Baker took a few shots at the current TBS Champion including noting that she was “manipulating her fans” by piping in the ‘CEO’ chant in her entrance music.

Baker’s interview was then interrupted by Mercedes Mone arriving to the venue on the big screen, and being greeted by the Young Bucks who congratulated Mone on her win at Forbidden Door and said she’s a CEO they can get behind – and she seemed very friendly with the Bucks.

While Britt Baker was still in the ring, not quite done with her interview segment, production assistants began to decorate the ring for Mone’s “celebration”.

Mone came out to the ring – through the heel tunnel for the first time since she joined AEW – and joined Baker in the ring.

Mone asked if she had interrupted something as the pair exchanged words before Baker issued a challenge.

Baker challenged Mone to a match at AEW All In London at Wembley Stadium, but Mone told Baker to get to the back of the line.

While Baker would ask “where’s the line?”, to which Mone responded by telling her that there was a “price to pay for messing with Mercedes Mone” to end the segment.

Mercedes Mone vs Britt Baker looks to be on for AEW All In, with Mone heading into the match as the heel and Baker as the babyface.
