Britt Baker Interview
— All Elite Wrestling on TNT (@AEWonTNT) March 12, 2020
Tony Schiavone: Salt Lake City, Utah. Dynamite is red hot tonight and let me bring in at this time, Dr. Britt Baker DMD.
Britt Baker: Tony, I’m so happy that you’re here tonight, there’s nothing else going on in Utah. I actually brought your favorite coffee. And I don’t want to be rude, I would have brought you all coffee, but I was told coffee was a big no-no here. Actually, I prefer that we would be sipping a couple of cold ones, but in order to enjoy that, we would have to hop state lines cause that’s also frown upon. So, while we’re here in boring Utah, with this boring coffee, but that’s why i’m here to shake things up. I’ll tell you what’s not hard to find around here is sugar because i’m seeing a lot of High BMI and some really poor oral health. But I can help because I’m a dentist, didn’t you know?
Tony Schiavone: All right, Dr. Baker, you said you had something you wanted to share with us. Please, the floor is yours.
Britt Baker: I do, I want to remind all of you out there and now that i’m getting a better look, i’m seeing a lot of very similar faces, almost like we’re at a giant family reunion. Which is okay because I still want to tell all of you, to pursue anything and everything you have a true passion for. You could get that job promotion. You can be the construction worker. You can be the janitor, the plumber, and the dental assistant. We can all achieve greatness and that’s why i’m here, to be your model. And I will lead by example for each and everyone of you.
Tony Schiavone: Well, i’m not certain to be honest with you. You and I have been here a lot and i’m not sure you’re making a lot of friends here.
Britt Baker: I can’t thank you all enough for your warm standing ovations each week. Again, I am here to be your role model.
Tony Schiavone: I get that, but I’m not sure you’re being truly genuine.
Big Swole: Keep talking, you know, cause that’s what you do, Brittney. Talk and talk. I mean, you act like I don’t watch the product, like I don’t hear you running your slip mouth. Why are you hiding behind Tony? PSA Boo: He don’t even like you.
Britt Baker: I don’t know why you are out here anyway, it’s not like you have any amount of relevance. The only person in your household, wrestling cares about, is your boyfriend.
Big Swole: I’m married, BAY-BAY!
Baker throws Tony’s coffee at Swole to close the segment. Baker runs to the backstage area.
