Many people touted the AEW All Out event to be one of the most interesting wrestling events of the year. The biggest AEW pay-per-view of the year had some fantastic matches lined up for the night. While most fans were excited to see the much-anticipated return of CM Punk or the fight between Chris Jericho and MJF, there was one other match that many considered could be the show-stealer, and that fight was between Dr. Britt Baker and Kris Statlander.

And the fight lived up to all the expectations and turned out to be an entertaining affair. Going into the fight, many people believed Baker hasn’t been focused since her return from injury. Add to that the fact that Statlander has been in a great run of form and therefore many believed that she could defeat ‘DMD.’

However, Baker proved why she is the champion, as she went toe-to-toe with a motivated Statlander. The fight went from one direction to another as both Baker and Statlander came up with brilliant moves. However, the thing that stood out was Baker hitting Statlander with a ‘Pittsburgh Sunrise’.

The ‘Pittsburgh Sunrise’ is Adam Cole’s signature move and is known as the ‘Panama Sunrise’ when he uses it. This move caught the attention of many as Cole and Baker are dating, and there have been various rumors about Cole coming to the AEW.

Currently, Cole’s contract with the WWE has expired and many believe that the fighter could end up at AEW and this move by Baker could just be a way to inform fans of the same.

While Baker caught the attention of everyone after hitting the ‘Pittsburgh Sunrise’ at the AEW All Out 2021 event. Cole had also earlier paid tribute to Baker as he had used the ‘LockJaw” against Kyle O’Reilly at the NXT Takeover 36 event.

The ‘LockJaw’ is Baker’s finishing move, which she also used to finish Statlander in her All Out fight. Both Cole and Baker have given tribute to each other by using the other’s special move. And while there might not be much behind this, wrestling fans have been trying to speculate what this could mean.
