AEW Star Says They’re “Lucky To Work For” Tony Khan
Former AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker DMD has discussed her current role in AEW and waxed lyrical about her boss Tony Khan and says everyone in the company is lucky to work for him.
Dr. Britt Baker DMD has risen through the ranks of AEW as one of the first stars signed by the company, eventually becoming AEW Women’s World Champion in May 2021 when she defeated Hikaru Shida at Double Or Nothing. Recently Baker has taken more of a backseat to her on-screen partner and current AEW Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter.
Speaking to FoxSportsAU explained how she sees her current role in AEW and spoke of her own experiences of working closely with Tony Khan and says that he is a special guy:
“Right now I’m not having weekly matches, I’m not having weekly promos, so it’s a little bit backed off. I try not to bother him and bug him (Khan) because there are 100s of other wrestlers texting him on a daily basis, I’m sure. But for example when I was champion, I was texting with Tony several times a week with different ideas, and he was sending me his ideas, and he’s very straight-up with me.
“He’d tell me ‘Britt, that’s not a good idea, I don’t like that’, or ‘hey, let’s make this better’, and I really appreciate that from my boss. Honesty is one of the most helpful tools anyone can ever give you when you’re learning your craft, especially when you’re learning TV professional wrestling.
“I couldn’t ask for a better boss than Tony Khan and he has helped me so much growing as a performer, as a wrestler, as a human being. He’s really a special guy and we’re lucky to work for him.”
