In an explosive turn of events on a recent episode of AEW Dynamite, Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. emerged victorious, guaranteeing her a coveted spot in the four-way AEW Women's Title match. This bout is set to be a cornerstone of the All In pay-per-view, slated for Sunday, August 27th, at the iconic Wembley Stadium in London, England, with an audience of over 80,000 ardent wrestling fans.
Last week’s August 9th AEW Dynamite delivered the news that had fans buzzing: a four-way face-off for the AEW Women’s Championship at All In. Former champion Toni Storm was amongst the first to be announced as a competitor, granted her rematch opportunity.
Current titleholder, Hikaru Shida, who dethroned Storm on August 2nd, further solidified her position in this contest. She triumphed over Anna Jay in a thrilling main event last week on Dynamite. Saraya, an English-native and known antagonist in the wrestling sphere, clinched her spot in this anticipated match by outlasting Skye Blue on AEW Rampage.
Wrestling on her home turf, the crowd's sentiment might tilt in Saraya's favor despite her current heel persona.
Baker's Triumph Over The Bunny
However, the talk of the town has been Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D.' s performance. Hailing from Nashville's Dynamite, she squared off against The Bunny, both foundational figures in AEW.
Throughout the match, The Bunny's near wins, aided by Penelope Ford, kept fans on the edge of their seats. Yet, Baker's resilience prevailed, securing her victory with a decisive "Stomp" on The Bunny. Thus, All In promises a thrilling face-off: Hikaru Shida defending her title against a formidable trio of Britt Baker, Saraya, and Toni Storm.
A quick flashback for newer AEW enthusiasts: Britt Baker isn't a stranger to championship glory. At Double or Nothing 2021, Baker seized the title from Shida, boasting the second-longest reign as AEW Women's Champion, lasting an impressive 290 days.
As All In approaches, Baker faces the challenge once more, this time contending with not only Shida but also the formidable forces of Saraya and Toni Storm. The stakes have never been higher.
