The video clip dates back to 2016, when Baker had worked as a jobber for a match against Jax.
It was the main roster debut of Nia Jax in mid-2016 after her two-year stint in NXT. Jax showed her dominance against Baker in that match to make an huge impact and showcase that she was a major threat to the female division. Vince McMahon ‘Kicked Out’ AEW Tag Team?

Baker recently reflected on her squash loss to Nia Jax while speaking with Sean Ross Sapp:
“That was probably the most anxious I’ve been in my entire life. At the time, I had done a couple of the spots for extra work before. It was very uneventful for women. A lot of the men, extra talent, would get used for security spots, to get beat up, or just the random stuff. The girls, we kind of just sat around and watched in catering all day.”
Britt Baker is set to challenge Hikaru Shida for the AEW Women’s World Championship at tonight’s AEW Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
