After Baker won the Women’s Championship at AEW Double or Nothing, the promotion decided to commemorate and celebrate Baker. AEW announced that the June 4 edition of Dynamite would be a celebration of Baker’s accomplishment.

AEW’s newest face decided to capitalize on the moment a bit more. Baker asked fast-food industry giant McDonald’s to give out free Big Macs (their most popular burger) to everyone attending the special celebration.

Baker’s love for the special burger is well-known as she often goes by the moniker ‘Big Mac Britt (B.M.B.).’ This time, McDonald’s also wrote back to Britt ahead of the show.

The company reached out to AEW’s role model with 1500 Britt Mac coupons and a little congratulations note. The coupon would give the fan a free Big Mac, and the offer is valid up to December 31, 2021. The fast-food retailers also teased that they’ve got another surprise coming Britt’s way.

Britt Baker once got into a hilarious feud with Wendy’s

As we mentioned earlier, Baker’s love for Big Mac is well-documented. In one particular instance, Baker got into a little Twitter spat with McDonald’s rival Wendy’s.

It all started when Baker’s friend Rebel replied to one of Wendy’s tweets as she tagged fellow WWE superstar Ethan Page for a celebration meal. The company replied to the tweet saying, “Heck yes, Rebel. Also, please tell the doctor we love her.”

To this, Baker cheekily replied with “Sorry I’m taken,” as she posed with two Big Macs. Well, this did not sit right with Wendy’s as the company replied, “Hard to get heat with frozen beef. Just saying.”
