AEW takes a dig at NXT by recreating the scene of Britt Baker at ringside from Takeover

AEW took a dig at NXT last night by recreating the scene of Dr. Britt Baker sitting in the crowd looking in disbelief after Nayla Rose powerbombed AEW referee Rick Knox through a table.

After Rose discarded the referee, the camera cut to Baker who was sitting at ringside having the same look she had at Takeover: WarGames when Ciampa and Cole went through the table from the top of the cage.

“Oh! Dr. Britt Baker is looking on,” exclaimed Tony Schiavone. “That’s Adam Cole’s girlfriend,” added Excalibur.

The whole thing was in response to NXT showing Baker in the crowd at Takeover and then Mauro Ranallo acknowledging her on television. Triple H then addressed the situation afterwards in a conference call with reporters.

“I don’t have a problem with it in any way, shape or form. Then, to not address it, it’s the elephant in the room that you don’t address. Now, it’s weird, right?” Triple H said. “I would never want to put a talent in that position. I get why she’s here. I get who she’s here with. I would never want to put her in a position where I took a shot of her and it gets her heat or it gets her to have a problem with her employers and what she’s doing. I wouldn’t want that to be a problem for her, and it very easily could be.”
