While Britt Baker’s Lights Out match with Thunder Rosa may have put her on the map as a performer, it is not her only experience with hardcore match types in AEW. One year after the famous match, she once again fought Rosa in a Steel Cage match that saw Rosa win the AEW Women’s Championship from Baker.
Through both matches, both women battered each other putting one another through tables, into thumbtacks, and onto propped ladders and chairs. Baker, in particular, walked away from the ring with a back full of thumbtacks. With all of that in mind, it’s unsurprising that Baker maintains that the matches aren’t a cakewalk.
“They’re definitely not fun. It hurts, for a long time too. It does hurt. I wouldn’t take back anything I’ve done, I’m very proud of it,” she said. “I’m happy, I’m happy for what it did for AEW, myself, and for women’s wrestling.”
