Dr. Britt Baker has been the pillar of All Elite Wrestling’s Women’s Division for the better part of a year, and the reigning AEW Women’s World Champion confirmed last month that she signed a multi-year extension to stay with the company. Adam Cole, her boyfriend, said in a recent interview with Renee Paquette that WWE officials told him they were very interested in bringing her in if she opted not to re-sign, but Baker said in a new interview with Paquette and Miesha Tate that the feeling was never mutual.
“It’s no secret, [Adam] has already said it, that cat is out of the bag and I’m not going to get in trouble,” Baker said on Throwing Down (h/t Fightful). “WWE was definitely poking the bear a little bit through him recently, when I was still with AEW. ‘Hey, we’re interested in her,’ without teetering the line of contract tampering, they definitely let me know that they had interest in me, but it wasn’t a mutual thing. I’m very happy with AEW and thankful for the opportunities and this is where I want to stay,”
Baker recently main evented the AEW Dynamite: Grand Slam event in New York City and successfully retained her title against Ruby Soho. Meanwhile, Cole made his surprise arrival in AEW at the end of September’s All Out pay-per-view mere weeks after his WWE contract expired.
