Britt Baker shares critical opinion about WWE’s developmental strategy

It’s been well documented that WWE has a developmental system in place to train athletes to the ways the company wants its product of wrestling and doing promos. The new vision to create stars is to bring in younger and taller athletes with no wrestling experience and train them instead of signing experienced independent wrestlers who have a track record of success in other promotions.

Timothy Bella of the Washington Post has an article looking t the growth of and rise of AEW. During it, AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker discussed WWE’s developmental strategy.

“I don’t think putting a bunch of models and athletes off the street in a warehouse and teaching them all to do the same thing the same way at the same time is going to create a successful roster. People learn differently and they have different strengths and weaknesses, and sometimes you have to find out what those are on your own.”

On Friday, it was reported that WWE’s new directive on hiring women is that they need to be 25 or younger. Also, the company plans to release NXT talent every 6 months if they do not improve.

Baker will make her next title defense against Tay Conti at the AEW Full Gear pay-per-view event next Saturday night.
