Britt Baker explaining her feelings going into her Lights Out Match with Thunder Rosa:
“I used to be nervous as a result of it’s going to harm. There’s no means round it. However, I used to be able to die. I used to be like, ‘Let’s go.’ I’ve been right here from the start from day one in AEW. I used to be the primary girl signed. I’ve been via all of it with the ladies’s division that, ‘It sucks. They’re not prepared for TV’ and all that. I felt like this was the chance to show the legitimacy of the division and say we do have a canine on this combat in girls’s wrestling. I used to be so motivated and so able to go.”

“Jericho is one in every of my main go-tos. Kenny, Cody, Tony. Tony fingers down helps everyone greater than anyone greater than anyone even deserves. He’s the perfect human being on the planet.”
Baker speaking about Jerry Lynn and Tony Khan:
“I had so many concepts in my pocket book with concepts for this. Jerry is an enormous cellphone talker so I used to be speaking on the cellphone with him a lot too. If there’s a narrative of Britt Baker, there’s a chapter of Jerry Lynn himself only for how a lot he’s helped me even in the previous couple of months with my in ring work and character work. Particularly for this match, Jerry didn’t deal with us like girls. He was like we had been two wrestlers placing collectively a foremost occasion, lights out match, which was actually particular to me as a result of it was the primary time I felt we had been foremost eventers, we’re not like girls’s wrestlers. With the match, I used to be actually cautious as a result of Tony may be very considerate and really candid. He nervous. He’s very nervous about our security and getting harm. I’d at all times give him an concept one by one, like, ‘Hey, what do you consider this.’ ‘Oh, cool.’ I didn’t wish to throw it suddenly as a result of he could be like, no means. I saved the tax for final. I actually assume the tax are going to be one thing that will make this match stick out as a result of ladies don’t take tax. He was all for it. He cherished it, however then proper earlier than the match, he pulled me in his workplace and he was nervous. He’s like, ‘Britt, I don’t learn about a few of these spots, this desk bump on the finish, and the ladder. I don’t know.’ I mentioned, ‘Simply belief me. Please simply belief me. We received this. Now we have to do that. Now we have to do that for this match to be what it must be’, and he did. As quickly because the match was over and we stopped filming, he was one of many first ones on the market to verify on me after I’m laying within the desk rubble. He’s a germaphobe. Tony is unquestionably an enormous germaphobe and he hugged me and I used to be lined in blood. That’s after I was like, man, this should be a superb match if Tony simply hugged me whereas I used to be lined in blood.”
Baker speaking about her heel flip:
“That was all Kenny’s concept to show me heel. I used to be scared however in fact, I used to be going to do it. I’m not going to say no, however I used to be nervous. I by no means had been a heel earlier than. I didn’t know something about warmth. That’s the perfect factor that ever occurred to me. That and getting injured as a result of after I received injured, I started working on my heel promos. Who higher to work with than Chris Jericho of all individuals? It’s like I actually ripped off a few of his character from WCW when he was just like the function mannequin and the conspiracy sufferer. He helps me a lot.”
