At Fyter Fest night two, Britt Baker will have her first defense of the AEW Women’s World Championship since winning the title from Hikaru Shida at Double Or Nothing. Baker is set to defend against Nyla Rose.
Dating back to when she went down with an injury in 2020 and remained as a constant on AEW programming, Baker could feel the fans rallying behind her and she is aware that at the beginning of her start in AEW, there was a bit of push back from viewers but that is no longer the case.
Pro Wrestling Illustrated released the audio from their conversation with Baker and she spoke about her title win, adding that she feels she is an undeniable act on Wednesday night television.
You know, you can’t really plan to have a great reaction when you win a title. I think everybody hopes deep down that’s what’s gonna happen but I never planned in a million years that it would have been — these fans [in Jacksonville] were incredible to me and I’m really thankful for them because they’ve been along for the ride with the growth of Doctor Britt Baker D.M.D. and now, it’s unreal how much I feel the fan support which is something I — you know, a year or two ago, it was the constant resistance. It was, ‘We don’t want Britt Baker. We don’t want her on our TV’ and now, I truly feel like I’m an undeniable act on Wednesday night television.
The lineup for night two of Fyter Fest includes a Texas Deathmatch for the IWGP U.S. Heavyweight Title, Chris Jericho versus Shawn Spears, Wheeler YUTA versus Darby Allin and more bouts and segments have been announced.
