Britt Baker Comments On Starring In AEW All Access, Jungle Boy Talks Feeling Nervous

In a recent interview with Jim Varsallone, former AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. discussed starring in AEW All Access, and what the early talks were like to get her and Adam Cole involved.


Check out some highlights from the interview below:


On when talks started for AEW All Access: “The discussions for the show started a long time ago. They [WarnerMedia] reached out to me because they were really interested in my life as a wrestler and dentist. My first question to them is, ‘Why?’ because, to me, it doesn’t seem that interesting. That’s just my life and I’m so used to it. The more I thought about it, I was like, it could be interesting to see someone work as a dentist one day, and perform in front of 10,000 fans the next day. Then, we had a few events unfold where Adam Cole became available to be a part of the project.”


On thinking Adam Cole wouldn’t be interested: “So, when he came to AEW, they [Warner Media] asked me, ‘Do you think he’d be interested in being part of this project?’ I can’t lie — I first said I don’t think he’ll have any interest in this whatsoever. He’s such a private person. Lo and behold, he was all for it. He was really excited about it. Even with his head injury, he still wanted to show everybody what was going on behind the scenes.”


On social media playing a role in her agreeing to do the show: “Exactly. Because of social media, professional wrestling is an entirely different world than it was even 10 years ago,” Baker stressed. “The fans have smartened up. They’re getting smarter every day and every year. They know a lot of the ins and outs of professional wrestling, which is why I think a show like this works.”


In a recent interview with WhatCulture Wrestling, AEW wrestler Jungle Boy discussed transitioning to singles wrestling and how he still feels nervous before heading to the ring.


Check out some highlights from the interview below:


On leaving the Jurassic Express era of his career behind: “I don’t know. It’s an interesting time for me. Since the beginning, I’ve always been tied to — first, it was Luchasaurus and Marko as a team, and then even in this rivalry with Christian, I kind of have been tied to someone all the time.” Perry said. “This is the first time I’m out on my own in the wilderness, which is weird. Four years in, it kind of feels like it’s staring all over. Closing the lid on [the rivalry with Christian], that really felt like closing a big chapter of my life, sort of. That was the beginning, I guess. Now we’re in the middle, so I don’t know. We’ll see what happens, but I’m excited.”


On how he can still get nervous before going to the ring: “I think when I first came in, it was like a huge deal for me like I’m wrestling on TV with these guys who are the best wrestlers in the world. At first, I was like, ‘I don’t know if I can hang with these because it’s like a whole new world.’ So it was nice to have a partner there for that. The way our team worked out, I ended up doing 90% of the work all the time anyways, but it was nice to have someone else there with me experiencing that for the first time. Because we were both freaking out, like, ‘Oh my god, we’re about to wrestle The Young Bucks or Kenny, like whatever it was. Now, I still get nervous. I throw up in a trash can most weeks before I go, but in a way, most of the jitters are gone. I know I can hang in there with all these guys. I know I can do what I’m here to do. So now that that part’s kind of out of the way, I feel more confident in what I’m doing. You know, just trying to improve a little every time. It’s all you can really ask for, but I feel good, and really set and prepared to go out on my own now, kind of make the most of it.”
