AEW Considered Splitting Up Britt Baker & Rebel

The pair remain a popular fixture on AEW TV

Since forming a partnership back in April 2020 during The Rules Of Being A Role Model vignettes, Britt Baker and Rebel have been a popular duo in All Elite Wrestling. 

Despite this, Britt Baker noted during an interview with Sports Illustrated that AEW considered having her turn on Rebel at one point.

After being asked about her pairing with Rebel, Baker said: "I am so happy that the rest of the world is seeing her talent. When we started 'The Rules of Being a Role Model,' she was the makeup artist. She's so passionate about wrestling, she was written into the first scene, the one in my dental office, as Reba. Once Tony saw that, he thought our interaction was great. We all thought it made sense to keep us together.

"At one point, there was talk of me turning on her. But I can't. She's that important to Dr. Britt Baker. We are having so much fun together. We always say, 'Just let us flow; don't overcomplicate things,' and that's when you get the greatest product quality from us. Just let us flow, and we're going to hit it out of the park."

AEW ultimately didn't press ahead with the turn and Reba will likely be alongside Britt Baker when she takes on Thunder Rosa in a Lights Out match on Wednesday's Dynamite.
