At NXT TakeOver: WarGames, WWE cut to a close-up of All Elite Wrestling star Britt Baker as she watched her boyfriend Adam Cole compete at the event. The moment quickly took on a life of its own and was even spoofed on an episode of Dynamite.
The Role Model has previously revealed she is allowed to go to WWE's events despite working in AEW as Tony Khan told her they aren't a cult. Baker revealed on the AEW: Unrestricted podcast that Cole didn't initially have WWE's blessing to go to her shows, however, as she explained he had a ticket for All In but the wrestling behemoth forbade him from attending.
She did note that WWE has changed their minds since then, and the NXT Champion was in attendance for AEW's January 1 show at Daily's Place in Jacksonville, Florida.
"This is also annoying but he originally was told he can't come to our shows," Britt said. "For All In actually, he had a plane ticket booked and then they told him he can't go. So, he still came to be supportful and he just watched it on his phone in the hotel room so that way we could after-party afterwards, but he wasn't allowed to go.
"And then recently they've changed their tune and he was able to come to our new year's show. And it's great for him too because this is his family, like The Young Bucks and Adam Cole go way back… I hope there is a day in the near future where Adam Cole can be in the ring with The Young Bucks and Kenny and Cody and it'll come full circle and we can be one giant happy family."
