AEW's Britt Baker Believes She's Worth More Than MJF
The Doctor on why she's a more valuable wrestler than MJF.
AEW Women's World Champion Britt Baker believes she's 'worth more' as a wrestler than fellow roster-member MJF.
The centrepiece of the AEW women's division recently appeared on Barstool Rasslin' with Brandon Walker, where she spoke about her plans to continue her momentum in the long term.
Having labelled 2022, 2023 and 2024 all 'the year of Britt Baker', she went on to explain:
'Then somebody is going to be paying a lot of money, because that's right around the time my contract is up. Honestly, I'm worth more than Max [MJF]. If you owned a wrestling company, in today's landscape, is MJF worth more money or is Britt Baker worth more money? He thinks he's more important; I think I'm more important. I built an entire women's division from the ground up.'
It's probably fair to suggest that these remarks should be taken as playful competition rather than an indication of real animosity between the pair. In her choice of language, Britt appears to be echoing MJF's in-character assertions that he'll start a 'bidding war in 2024' once his current AEW contract has expired.
This isn't the first time Baker and MJF's names have become intertwined, despite limited onscreen interaction in AEW so far. In his ongoing feud with CM Punk, MJF accused his rival of 'trying to get into Britt Baker's pants' - a response to Punk's repeated praise of the Women's Champion.
Britt is set to team with partner Adam Cole on this week's AEW Dynamite, taking on the duo of Orange Cassidy and Kris Statlander.
