AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker D.M.D. took to Twitter on Friday night, revealing that she suffered a broken wrist during her match with Nyla Rose on this week’s AEW Dynamite (Fyter Fest – Night Two) broadcast. According to the doctor herself (albeit a dentist!), she will not be taking any time off.
Baker successfully defended her AEW Women’s World Championship against Nyla Rose during Wednesday night’s Fyter Fest (Night Two) themed episode of Dynamite. She posted the following photo of herself backstage with MMA fighter Paige VanZant at Friday night’s Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship event in Tampa, FL. For those wondering, VanZant lost to Rachael Ostovich in the fight. Anyways, Baker captioned the photo with,
“With @paigevanzant …And oh yeah, I retained the title on Wednesday night at #aewdynamite with a broken wrist. Not taking any time off either. #AndStill”
According to a report from the Wrestling Observer, the break was suffered after Baker took a Death Valley Driver from Rose.
As of this writing, there is no word on how/if this will affect AEW’s plans going forward but Baker is shown wearing a soft cast in the photo below.
