And yes. She has a dentist and that's a nice thing to cart out to get new, casual viewers interested in what the womens division is doing at a human interest level.

At some point they need to realise the dentist thing's only hurting Britt. It's seems like replacement for her lack of character where as in one match Emi's Freddie angle is totally complimented by her happy go lucky but also kind of a dick to her opponents in ring character.

Britt is like Flip Gordon where because a few people might recognize her name and she has a gimmick people just assume she's a good wrestler.

They were too busy looking at "oh wow, she has a PHD! Thats so rare for a wrestler" and how they could push that, that I don't think they really realized she doesn't have a whole lot going on in other departments.

She's solid in the ring though. She hasn't shown a lot in AEW but I've seen enough of her elsewhere to know she's not bad. Just not somebody that can be the star of a division, at least not yet.

Britt had a good match with Tessa during Wrestlemania weekend, much better than anything she's done in aew. I'm giving her some time. Also how can anyone develop a character when given no mic time or video packages.....though I suppose she didn't do much on commentary last week.

Wonder how much time EC3 has left on his contract. I don't think he's ever been injured, so in theory he's got one year left unless he signed an extension when he moved to the main roster.

While I'm enjoying the reversal of expectations with Kenny, I am starting to finally wonder if they're really doing the right thing in the long run by de-emphasizing him so much up front.

I mean..just straight up giving away one of Janela's dream matches in a dark match thats going to go up on Youtube for free still seems nuts.

- good matches

- not a nerd

- MDK
Cole's had great matches, at least by my standards as I'm never bored watching one. Though that last Gargano/Cole match was way too fucking long. As for the "not a nerd" part, I'm not terribly big on the eagerness of ERA posters to dunk on themselves and others who are like them. Ya'll own video game consoles, knock it off lol

Why do you think it's going up on youtube for free? It may just be truly a dark match. Like the unsanctioned part of the match makes me pretty much sure that it's just a think for the fans in attendance.

Meltzer from today's Observer Radio regarding the draft tomorrow on Smackdown:

  • It's going to be people picking like a football draft. There will be reps picking for Fox and USA.
  • It won't be authority figures because they don't want those right now.
  • This could change, but the whole draft is done. They're likely not telling anyone where they will go, but they might tell some of the talent higher on the card.

They’ve done this in the past. Imagine working for a company in 2019 that won’t tell you where you’re working because they literally want to work you .

EC3 will make history by being the first man to be drafted to WWE Main Event.

Are they high on Britt cause Kylie Rae threw up the deuces?

Or did kylie throw up the deuces cause they're high on Britt?

I'm pretty sure Britt Baker was the one who said "hey you gotta look at Kylie Rae" to the EVPs.

Can't see them having heat. If I remember the story correctly, they got pretty close on the RISE/Stardom tour in Japan last summer and Britt helped take care of Kylie when she got injured. Had good chemistry in their couple matches against each other and teaming together.

Oh, and both AEW Dynamite and NWA Powerrr were fantastic.

With AEW I wish Hager wasn't there at all, but I was very impressed by how Jericho shut those "We the people" chants down. Loved the skateboard spot at the end, and the opening tag match was superb. Britt is definitely struggling though.
