Britt Baker has shown her solidarity with some AEW fans that’ve taken it upon themselves to highlight what they see as pitfalls in how the company’s women are treated.

On the July 26th episode of AEW Dynamite, Britt Baker defeated Taya Valkyrie by submission in a ten-minute match. It was the only women’s match on the show.

As Baker celebrated her win, the camera focused on a fan’s sign that read “Book The Women’s Division Better”. That sign appears to have resonated with some people online, to the point that some of AEW’s women’s wrestlers have chosen to comment on it.

Britt Baker describes seeing both support for and apathy towards AEW’s women’s division

In an interview with TV Insider, Baker was specifically asked about that sign’s message and what it meant to her. She noted that while she appreciated the sentiment, she wasn’t sure it was representative of a larger group of people because she sees as many detractors as she does supporters of AEW’s women’s division.

“I see both sides to that because I completely agree. The absolute best matches that come out of professional wrestling come out of storylines you are so invested in. There are weeks and months that tell this beautiful story.

It’s something we haven’t been able to invest as much time in the women’s division lately. Again, there are many factors. Injuries, this and that. I definitely want to get to the point where we can get some solid storytelling with the women.

At the same time the fans who hold signs that say to book the women’s division better, that’s great. Then when I go on Twitter it doesn’t echo that. I don’t see the same support. It’s I hate these two wrestlers. This match was too long. This match was too short. If all you see about women’s wrestling is all negative online, it doesn’t add up to what they are preaching.

If you want the women to be booked better, support the women.”

Britt Baker isn’t alone in this sort of sentiment as her rival Saraya of the Outcasts hopes that a similar sort of support will come from AEW’s management when they decide the final card for AEW All In by giving the women multiple matches on that show’s card.
