During the latest episode of Talk Is Jericho, current AEW Champion Britt Baker wanted to talk about her brief WWE stint, specifically when she was still in development territory at the Performance Center. "I auditioned, I was just out of tryout.
They gave me an audition based only on my looks: 'Oh, this is a pretty girl.' I was put in a group after finishing the tryout, bumps and rolls. We can't even walk after the tryout ends. I, Lacey Evans and Bianca Belair were the women in Orlando.
There were all these extras, like testing the We were like, 'Oh my goodness, they're going to get us to sign a deal.' So we're celebrating, and I'm still talking to those girls. But, Canyon Ceman, who was like the tutor for independent wrestlers to get into NXT at the time, pulled me aside at the end of the audition.
And he was like, 'you know, you just started dental school. As a father, I struggle to get you out of a professional degree.' My heart broke. "
But it all worked out for the best for Britt Baker
Also during the interview, Britt added that it was not a bad thing, however: "But I owe him the world because I would have left dental school in the blink of an eye to go to WWE.
Since I was young, stupid, and I was like, 'I'm going to be NXT Women's Champion', that would take me far, right? She stayed in touch with me a few months after all this. Like, 'let me know when you finish dental school, send me your matches', yeah always kept in touch with me." So in a nutshell WWE was really interested in Britt Baker when she tried training with her, but they didn't feel like depriving her of her education and maybe it really got better as she now works both as a dentist and as a wrestler in AEW.
and the role he has in his "original" work is also fundamental for his character in the ring, his name says so too: Doctor Britt Baker DMD.
