The former WWE Divas Champion Paige had been struggling with neck issues over the past few years that had put a halt on her in-ring career. She was under a contract with WWE but she recently announced that she’d soon be ending her long run with WWE. She shocked the wrestling world when she announced that she’ll be leaving WWE in July. It was then revealed that WWE didn’t want to re-sign Paige to a new contract.
Britt Baker wants to face Paige
It seems that AEW star Dr. Britt Baker believes AEW could be a suitable destination for the star should she continue wrestling. D.M.D said that she woud love to either face her or watch her perform from the crowd.
Despite being plagued by injuries throughout her career, Paige maintained that she’s not done wrestling in her farewell tweet. In an interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling, Dr. Baker referred to the former WWE star as a ‘bad b****.’ In a positive way, of course:
“I’m a huge fan of Paige. I love her. I love her mom. I’ve wrestled her mom before actually. But she’s such an inspirational female. That girl has gone through it all and she’s still, pardon my swearing, but she’s such a bad b***h and she has that everything roll off your back energy,” Baker said.
The former AEW Women’s World Champion added how big a fan she was of the English star, both in terms of her attitude and her incredible work:
“You can’t get to her. You know what I’m saying? She holds her head high and her in a wrestling ring again, if I’m not in the match, I want to be ringside watching it,” added Baker. “Because she was one of my favorites to watch. Her energy. I mean she would come out and do the sideways skip up the ramp. It made me so excited. I used to play her entrance music in my car. So, I’m a big fan.”
