All Elite Wrestling (AEW) star Britt Baker was recently interviewed by WrestleZone to talk about several professional wrestling topics.
Here are the highlights:
Issues with Bea Priestley:
I could say that I would have possibly just washed my hands with it. But then costing me my title match, my title shot opportunity—which, from day one, all eyes have been on me essentially—because I am one of the faces of the women’s division. And that opportunity, I was essentially cheated out of it because of Bea Priestley. So now it is a war.
Priestley giving her a concussion:
My left eye—I lost peripheral vision for five days. The doctors, everyone kept telling me ‘it’s going to come back, it’s going to come back, this is going to be a recovery.’ People can tell you that every single day. But until the vision actually comes back it’s hard to believe. It’s hard to stay optimistic because it’s terrifying. You need your vision and I especially need my vision to do dentistry as well and I missed some time off of work because of that injury as well.
Her mindset when it comes to Priestley:
Clearly this isn’t a clean fight anymore because she hasn’t fought clean since day one. The second she stepped into the ring, she gave me a concussion. Her very first offensive move in an AEW ring was giving me a concussion. So, moving forward, I have this whole story just ingrained into my head.
