Britt Baker takes a shot at AEW rankings claiming Cody Rhodes influences standings


Britt Baker was unhappy with the AEW rankings

Britt Baker took to Twitter to express her unhappiness about the latest AEW rankings.

A fan tweeted, “Why does Kris Statlander, who has a 2-3 losing record, rank 2 slots above Dr. @RealBrittBaker, the Face of #AEW ‘s Women’s Division and a certified, bona fide, accredited #RoleModel? #AEWDynamite #Injustice #MiscarriageOfJustice”.

Baker decided to have a go and replied:

“Who knows? Probably because @CodyRhodes  tweeted about her or something. Face with rolling eyes.”

Rhodes is serving as the Executive Vice President of AEW and is one of the top stars in the promotion. However, AEW’s rankings are a little weird. They have been reset a number of times even though the promotion is fairly recent.

This is not the first time that Rhodes has been at the receiving end of criticism. Back in March, Matt Hardy made his AEW debut and said that the show was the best “audience-free” pro wrestling show yet, and he was ready to fight for that.

Rhodes, who teamed up with Hardy and other members of The Elite to face The Inner Circle in the “Blood & Guts” match, responded to Matt’s tweet with a quick message to welcome him to the company.

One fan responded to Cody’s message to Matt and criticized AEW for bring in former WWE talents like Hardy and Brodie Lee (Luke Harper). That fan has since deleted his tweet, but Cody’s response is still live.

Cody wrote,

“Talent is talent. Merit based company. We have a great roster from all types of places (mainly blossoming independent stars). It’s a great balance.”

A bloody Baker

Baker is one of the most impressive people in all of professional wrestling. She is one of the leading figures in All Elite Wrestling’s developing women’s division just four years after first stepping foot in the ring.
