AEW superstar Britt Baker has set her sights on a new mission: propelling the company into the mainstream spotlight and attracting a fresh wave of fans. While she has established herself as a dominant force in the AEW women's division, Baker revealed to renowned journalist Jim Varsallone that her current goals extend beyond personal success, focusing on the overall growth of the company.
Speaking about her aspirations, Baker emphasized her desire to expand AEW's audience, particularly among the mainstream crowd.
