It’s nice to hear the opposite for a change. Wrestling is of course a very dangerous sport, which is the only way it can go. There are all kinds of things that can be done to make a match safer but a full contact sport is always going to have a danger factor. It feels like there is a new injury to report every day, but this time around we’ve got something good for a change.
As announced on her Twitter account, AEW star Britt Baker has been fully medically cleared to return to the ring and will be part of the Casino Battle Royal on August 31 at All Out. Baker had been injured at Fight For The Fallen when she took a shot to the head and received a concussion early on in her tag match. Baker was so out of it during the match that she tried to tag in her opponent.

The battle royal is going to be big. Check out a preview of the match:
Opinion: That’s always a relief to hear. Baker was completely gone during the Fight For The Fallen match and it’s good that she is already back on her feet and cleared to wrestle. Concussions are one of the scariest kinds of injury as you can’t see what the problem is and the symptoms can take a long time to go away. It’s great that she is already back as the division needs her to succeed.
Has Baker impressed you so far? Who will win the battle royal? Let us know in the comments below.
