Britt Baker Replaced By Penelope Ford In Match At Double Or Nothing
On this past weeks episode of AEW Dynamite, it appeared as though Britt Baker had suffered an injury. This happened during a tag team match where she teamed with Nyla Rose to face the team of Kris Statlander & Hikaru Shida. Reports after the show indicated that she had tore her ACL, a major injury which will put her out of the ring for 6 to 9 months. Backing up the fact that she is injured, is that her match with Kris Statlander for Double Or Nothing has now been changed at the last minute.
Time For Penelope Ford To Step Up FOr AEW
With one of the top female heels in AEW now out of action, they have chosen Penelope Ford to fill this role. She has taken over the match with Kris Statlander at Double Or Nothing, her biggest match to date. Ford has proven herself more than just a manager for AEW, even having a win over former AEW Women’s Champion, Riho. She only seems to get better, and will likely be ready to step up with this new found role.
It was only a matter of time before Ford got a larger role in the division, and this injury has simply has sped up the process. The top female heel will remain as AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose.
Britt Baker Could Remain A Presence In AEW While Injured
While Baker has proven to be a great wrester in recent performances, her biggest asset are her skills on the microphone. Her interactions with Tony Schiavone have been one of the highlights of AEW so far. They could have him wheel her around in a wheelchair, while she berates the crowd and gives updates on her injury.
If AEW wasn’t against having an on-screen authority figure, Baker would be perfect to fill this role. These are just two of the many ways to keep her involved, both of which will only help to make her eventual return to action all the better.
