Latest On Britt Baker's AEW Absence

The latest on Britt Baker’s absence from AEW

Former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker has been conspicuous by her absence from AEW, with Baker having not set foot in a ring since September 2023.

Reports in February claimed that Baker was ‘training very hard’ for a return to in-ring competition but was yet to be cleared by AEW trainers and medical staff. Baker discussed her absence during a recent panel discussion at SXSW, saying the following:

“Yeah, I do [think the best is yet to come]. Just growing as a wrestler and a performer and learning, and what works and what doesn’t work. And then just with all the new talent that's coming in and new talent we have to work with, and new coaches and new people coming over from WWE, new brains and minds we get to pick.

“You’re really doing yourself a huge disservice if you’re not constantly asking everybody around you for help. And I think the help in AEW is just growing and growing and for me personally, I can't wait to get back in the ring, have one of these bad boys (microphone) in my hand and cut some promos. I don't know. Just stay tuned,” said Baker.

AEW President Tony Khan was also part of the same panel, saying the following about Baker’s status:

“Britt is somebody who has been there basically since the beginning, since our first event. She's been out injured recently so it's something people will be looking forward to, something we have to offer is when Britt comes back and we get these great return moments,” said Khan.
