During the main event of WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames in Chicago, one of AEW’s top stars was shown watching in the crowd and Mauro Ranallo mentioned her name on commentary.
Baker was at the show to see her boyfriend/NXT Champion Adam Cole as he competed in the WarGames main event. The camera showed a concerned look on her face as Cole and Tommaso Ciampa fell off the top of the cage and through tables in the ring.
Ranallo referred to her as Cole’s girlfriend but did not mention that she is signed with AEW. It’s not common for WWE to reference wrestlers from a competing company and even more unusual for them to show a competing wrestler on camera. Baker has been to previous NXT shows and has been seen in the crowd but this is the first time that the camera has focused on her on purpose.
