AEW’s Britt Baker: "I Will Never Turn On Tony Schiavone”
One of the unlikeliest pairings in AEW is that of Dr. Britt Baker DMD, and announcer Tony Schiavone, with the pair’s on screen chemistry helping elevate Baker to the top of the women’s division.
But surely Baker will turn on Schiavone one day? According to Baker herself on the Mark Madden Podcast, it’s never going to happen:
“This is why you work in the radio booth and you're not booking Dynamite, because you're wrong,” Baker said after Madden suggested a turn was inevitable “I will never turn on Tony Schiavone. He's my shoot best friend in real life. We talk to each other on the phone every day. I don't have it in my heart. He's one of the only people in the entire company I like, so why would I get rid of him?”
Baker would later add:
“Jim Ross? One day, maybe, [but] never Tony Schiavone.”
Baker and Schiavone were once again paired on screen on last night’s edition of AEW: Dynamite from Pittsburgh, where hometown hero and AEW Women’s Champion Baker vowed to retain her title against Red velvet on the debut edition of AEW: Rampage.
