AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker has revealed that she sustained a legitimate broken wrist during her match with Nyla Rose on the July 21 Dynamite.
All Elite Wrestling Women’s Champion Britt Baker has revealed that she suffered a broken wrist during her match with Nyla Rose on the most recent Fyter Fest edition of Dynamite, which went down in Dallas on Wednesday, July 21.
On Friday night, Baker took to social media to share a photograph of herself alongside mixed martial artist Paige VanZant. In the image, Baker is wearing a hefty-looking cast on her right forearm.
“With [Paige VanZant],” Baker captioned the image. “And oh yeah, I retained the title on Wednesday night at [AEW Dynamite] with a broken wrist,” she added.
Baker claimed that despite the injury, she wouldn’t be taking any time off. Whether or not this means she intends to wrestle with a broken wrist remains to be seen, as it’s possible she will just continue to appear on AEW programming without participating in any matches.
Baker’s no stranger working while injured. As you might recall, she continued to appear in weekly Dynamite segments despite suffering an anterior lateral tibial fracture, a partial lateral collateral ligament tear, and a small degree tendon tear during a tag match on an episode of Dynamite in May of last year. Ironically, that match also featured the aforementioned Nyla Rose, although Rose was Baker’s tag partner that night, not her opponent.
Following her 2020 injury, Baker appeared regularly on Dynamite in a wheelchair and cut promos on her colleagues in the AEW women’s division.
