Can we consider her a guest star? AEW and WWE are the two biggest wrestling companies in the United States at the moment and that has made for some very interesting moments. While Dynamite has not been around all that long, it has managed to defeat NXT in overall viewership every week save for one and in the ratings every week. Some of this has been due to their roster, one member of which was seen and named on Saturday’s NXT Takeover: WarGames.
The main event of Takeover: WarGames saw Team Ciampa facing off against the Undisputed Era, lead by Adam Cole. The match was incredibly violent and featured various crashes and weapons being used. During the match, Cole took several bumps of his own and was in a lot of pain during the match. It was not just commentary who noticed this, and the cameras picked up on someone.
In the course of the WarGames match, WWE cameras showed AEW wrestler Britt Baker, who happens to be Cole’s girlfriend. NXT commentator Mauro Ranallo mentioned her by name but did not say that she worked for AEW. After the show was over, Sean Ross Sapp mentioned that Triple H spoke to Baker and apologized for having her appear. The director focused on her because she looked worried and did not know who Baker was. Triple H was not mad at the director and did not want to put Baker in the position. There is no word on if AEW is mad at Baker over the appearance.

Triple H just spoke to @RealBrittBaker and he says the director didn't know who the shot was, he went to the person in the crowd who had the most unbelievable look on their face, and it was her. He doesn't have a problem with it, but feels bad for putting her in that position

Maybe this scared her. Check out some of the things that happened to Cole:
Opinion: I can believe that this was all just a mistake as Baker is someone who is going to stand out in a crowd and probably did look nervous in the situation. It is very possible that the director didn’t know who it was and Ranallo might have thought it was something already planned in advance. This isn’t likely to be a big deal and hopefully Baker does not get in trouble for the whole thing.
What did you think of the show? Will Baker get in any trouble? Let us know in the comments below.
