Baker also spoke about how WWE was given only one chance at the tryout mainly due to her looks and how she felt getting signed along with Lacey Evans and Bianca Belair.

“I had a tryout. I was fresh out of training. They gave me a tryout solely based on my looks, ‘oh, this is a cute girl.’ I got put in a group after the training was all done, bumps and rolls. We can’t even walk by the end of the tryout. It was me, Lacey Evans, and Bianca were the females in Orlando.” “It was all these extras. They were like testing our range of motion. We were like, ‘holy sh*t, we are getting signed.’ So we are celebrating, and I still talk to those girls all the time.” (H/t Wrestling Inc.)

AEW Women’s World Champion took WWE rejection in a positive way

During the interview, Baker mentioned how her being rejected by the WWE was actually a positive thing and how Canyon Ceman would remain in contact with her. She noted how Canyon means the world to her. 

“But I owe him the world because I would have left dental school in a heartbeat to go to WWE.” “Because I was young, dumb, and I was like, ‘I’m going to be NXT Women’s Champion,’ like that would have got me far, right? He stayed in touch with me every few months after that. Like, ‘let me know when you finish dental school, send me your matches,’ he always kept up with me.”
