Britt Baker: Dealing With Trolls Takes Patience And Self-Control, It Motivates Me To Be Better

Britt Baker was really surprised by the blowback her match with Taya Valkyrie got on AEW Dynamite.

All Elite Wrestling‘s Britt Baker recently sat down with DAZN. When asked about the controversial matchup with Taya Valkyrie, Baker said she was surprised by the reaction as she’s had worse matches in the past that didn’t get this bad of a response.

“I was really surprised by it,” Britt Baker admitted. “I’ve had worse matches on AEW live TV. I’ve had better matches, of course. But I was really surprised. I think a lot of it came from people that just don’t like me on social media. I feel bad that Taya kind of got dragged into it.

“I’ve seen, I think probably every week since then, there be missed timing and missed communications and missed spots on every wrestling show since then. No one else quite got that much blowback. And that’s fine, but these social media trolls need to realize who they’re dealing with. I’m the D.M.D. I’m the face of the division for a reason.

Dealing With Trolls

“You’re just gonna motivate me to be even bigger and better. And that’s fine. I don’t think anybody should ever have to go through the quote-unquote bullying that these trolls do. It’s not just me. It’s everybody. I think every wrestler goes through it. And it’s from everything from what you look like to what you wear to what your hobbies are to then your wrestling, and you don’t deserve the spot you are in, and it’s someone’s spot.

“Something is always your fault, and you may not have anything to do with it, but because they don’t like you, they automatically assume it’s your fault. It’s so frustrating because you want to shout from the mountain tops, ‘Hey, this is the real story, and now you guys can line up and apologize to me.’ But you also have to think about what’s best for business. It takes a lot of patience and a lot of self-control.”
