After being away from AEW for months, Britt Baker finally returned to action by interrupting Mercedes Mone during a recent edition of AEW x NJPW: Forbidden Door. Baker then made a cameo on last week's "Dynamite," ratcheting up her program with Mone towards what could be an all-showdown.

She also used the chance to explain why she was away, saying it had been for medical reasons. Bully Ray recently discussed the Baker and Mone segment on Busted Open After Dark, explaining how TBS Champion was shaping their feud.

Bully Ray stated: "She told me she just went through this thing called a TIA." I've heard the acronym TIA before. In essence, the longer forms of what tiny wider public also means as a thorough are mini-strokes. Bully Ray shared empathy for Baker and said that he would have done the same thing to get out of the ring if dealing with comparable health concerns.

Baker's Vulnerability Highlighted

Bully Ray also notes that Baker talked about how she was scared the fans would turn on her before coming back at Forbidden Door. He theorizes that she demonstrates this vulnerability, which endures her more human character and puts fans who are cranked up with joy over her return on an emotional roller coaster right out of the gate.

This is a very honest answer, I thought. Of particular note, the WWE Hall of Famer was also curious about who Mone had been accompanying before going and how it may factor into the unfolding storyline. Bully Ray added: Matt and Nick are bad guys right now, so if Mercedes is in the same shot as Matt and Nick she's a heel by default.

This observation provides us with a clue about what could end up happening as this feud continues. The most interesting angle coming out of the show was undoubtedly Baker returning and helping Mone decimate The Jacksons, an exciting prospect for many fans in attendance.

Her candor about her health struggles and worries is just another layer to that character, one making the return even more powerful. With the march to All In being ready and prefaced, fans are pumped about where this story goes next and what it spells for AEW moving forward.
