As noted earlier, top AEW star Britt Baker was shown in the crowd during the main event of WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames.
Baker was at the show to support her boyfriend Adam Cole. In the final seconds of the match, Baker was shown with a concerned look on her face as Cole and Tommaso Ciampa crashed through two tables.
During the NXT TakeOver: WarGames post-show media call, Triple H said that showing her was not intentional and the director did not know who she was. He was just looking for the most concerned person in the crowd and it was her. He said he did not want to put her in a position that might get her heat with the company she works with and he added that he spoke with her when she went backstage to see Cole.
It’s unlikely that Baker will get heat from anyone in AEW because a lot of the people in management are friends with Cole and they don’t view the business like old promoters who would have reprimanded her or fired her for appearing on another promotion’s TV show.
Here is a trivia note for younger fans. Back in 2008, former WWE star Robbie McCallister (from The Highlanders tag team) went to attend an episode of TNA Impact in Orlando. TNA showed him in the crowd and the announcers acknowledged him and they showed a graphic with his real name on the screen. This happened a few days before WrestleMania. Someone from WWE called him and told him to leave the building immediately. McCallister later said that he lost his $5,000 WrestleMania paycheck due to his TNA appearance. He and tag team partner Rory McCallister were released a few months later.
During the media call, Triple H also addressed the CM Punk rumors. Click here for more on what Triple H said about Punk.
