AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker cut a promo on the show in an interview. Talking about AEW’s President Tony Khan making “blood money” after signing Andrade El Idolo, she mentioned ‘Saudi Arabia’, taking a dig on WWE’s collaboration with Saudi Arabia for special one-night events.

Baker was cutting a promo about how she was not happy with last week’s tag match against Nyla Rose and Vickie Guerrero. However, she had to wrestle in the match because Tony Khan promised Vickie that he owes her after she brought in Andrade.

“Let’s talk about last week. Because last week, I was forced to take part in a match that no one wanted to see. Because your AEW Women’s World Champion had to stage with her assistant against a known conspirator and danger to society – Nyla Rose and senior citizen, Vickie Guerrero.

Enjoy your blood money [Tony Khan]. Maybe next week AEW Dynamite can run in Saudi Arabia,” Baker said in the interview with Tony Schiavone.
