• “Please don’t turn the channel when the women are on TV” – AEW Wrestler’s Request To Fans
While speaking to UPROXX, AEW’s Britt Baker discussed how the company is working to improve their Women’s division and said if fans want to see the division grow, they shouldn’t turn the channel.
Here’s what Britt said:
“Yeah, I definitely think it’s something the company is working on. You know, and we got hit hard — our women’s division, because of the COVID outbreak. Half our roster is international talent, so we immediately didn’t have access to any of those women. Then Kris Statlander got hurt, and I got hurt. And there’s only so much time on AEW Dynamite to start with.
I know there are plans to grow the women’s division, but at the same time we need help from the fans at home too! We can’t have the women’s segments being the lowest rated or the lowest views each week. Because at the end of the day it’s a business, and AEW needs ratings.
It’s no secret we’re in a war every Wednesday night with NXT, so we need the ratings up. So for the fans that are so encouraging and saying ‘We want more women, we want more women!’ that’s great, but please don’t turn the channel when the women are on TV then! We want everybody to be watching the segments and cheering us on from home.”
