In the wake of Taya Valkyrie's recent match against Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. on "AEW Dynamite," the wrestling world witnessed an unfortunate surge of criticism and negative comments directed towards the talented wrestler on various social media platforms.
Despite Valkyrie's own response to the online trolls, support for her continues to pour in from different corners of the industry, including an endorsement from one of her former employers. Court Bauer, the revered owner and promoter of Major League Wrestling (MLW), recently weighed in on the matter during an appearance on "Busted Open Radio." Bauer's sentiments were clear and unwavering as he passionately defended Taya Valkyrie and her immense contributions to the wrestling business.
He staunchly refuted the disparaging remarks, asserting that those who engage in such behavior simply lack a genuine understanding of the business and fail to recognize Valkyrie's significant impact.
Praising Taya Valkyrie
Bauer expressed his admiration for the accomplished wrestler, emphasizing how she has been a trailblazer for women in the industry.
As a former MLW World Women's Featherweight Champion, Valkyrie's dedication to elevating women's wrestling has been commendable, as she has consistently put over and carried fellow female talents throughout her career. Bauer went on to highlight her selfless commitment, spanning a remarkable decade, during which she has dedicated her life to the wrestling business.
The MLW owner further praised Valkyrie's positive influence behind the scenes, describing her as a warm and supportive presence in the locker room. According to Bauer, her skills not only shine in the ring but also have a transformative effect on the collective performance of the entire locker room.
This was evident in her stints in various promotions like AAA, Lucha Underground, and MLW, where she left a lasting impact on her peers and the industry as a whole. Although Valkyrie's tenure in AEW has been relatively short, only spanning four months, she has already cemented her status as a vital component of the promotion's programming.
Her veteran presence and exceptional abilities have positioned her as a key player in the division. One disappointing performance should not overshadow the wealth of talent and value she brings to the table.
