Britt Baker recently appeared on the “My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox” podcast and credited Johnny Gargano for teaching her to put a little extra into her matches. She said,
“Him and Candice both, it was so cool. He’s just so innovative. Like, he was it for me. I loved his training because he would take the most basic simple concept of like chain wrestling but make it flashy and cool.
It’s what he’s known for doing, of course, but he made it so easy for us like something that anybody that was like early on in wrestling — all of us sucked, we weren’t good yet. We were all still trainees and to get to have that, you get so excited to go into training because you just know, ‘I’m going to learn something cool today that I’m going to be able to like put in a match. People are gonna think I’m flashy,’ and that’s why I was going to Cleveland at the time. I had learned the basics. I learned the fundamentals like I knew the headlock, the chin lock, drop down, I knew all that. I didn’t know, like putting a little pizzazz on matches, and that was, that’s what he helped me with.”
