Top AEW Star Was ‘Really Surprised’ By Negative Reaction To Their Recent Match AEW

Former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker has reacted to criticism of her recent match against Taya Valkyrie.

The two faced off on the July 26 episode of Dynamite, with many people criticising the match on social media, and others personally attacking Britt and Taya themselves.

Speaking with DAZN ahead of AEW All In, Britt discussed the reaction to the match, saying that she was ‘really surprised’ by the reaction to the match, believing that she has had much worse matches on TV than that one.

She said:

“I was really surprised by it, I’ve had way worse matches on AEW live TV, I was really surprised. I think a lot of it came from people that just don’t like me on social media and I feel kind of bad that Taya got dragged into it. Probably every week since then, [there has been] timing and miscommunications and messed up spots on every wrestling show since then and no one else got that much blow back and that’s fine, but these social media trolls need to realize who they’re dealing with. I’m the DMD, I’m the face of the division for a reason, and you’re just gonna motivate me to be even bigger and better and that’s fine.

“I don’t think anyone should have to go through the quote on quote bullying that these trolls do and it’s not just me, it’s everybody, I think every wrestler goes through it and it’s everything from what you look like, to what you wear, to what your hobbies are, to your wrestling and you don’t deserve the spot that you’re in and it’s somebody else’s spot. Something’s always your fault and you might not have anything to do with it because they don’t like you, they assume it’s your fault because you just want to shout from the mountain tops, hey, this is the real story, and now you guys can all line up and apologize to me but, you always have to think of what’s best for business. It takes a lot of patience and self control.”

Britt Baker will be a part of a four-way for the AEW Women’s World Championship at All In at Wembley Stadium, taking on Hikaru Shida, Saraya and Toni Storm.
