Britt Baker is looking forward to All In.
The event, which takes place on August 27 at Wembley Stadium in London, England, is set to be one of the most highly attended professional wrestling shows in history. All Elite Wrestling have already sold nearly 70,000 tickets (nearly 75,000 total tickets have been distributed) and have already grossed their highest ever gate of over $9 million.
Speaking with Mark Andrews of the My Love Letter To Wrestling Podcast, Baker was asked about the importance of All In to AEW and if this show means as much to them as it does to England.
“I would say yes, and even more so because we’ve never been there, we’ve never been to the U.K. as a company, as a whole. So, it’s a new territory and it’s the biggest stage you could ask to perform on. If you would’ve told me when I signed my AEW contract that we would be wrestling in a nearly sold out Wembley, I would’ve said you’re insane. I thought 10,000 people was crazy, if I never wrestled in front of 10,000 people, I would have been thrilled. We’re definitely feeling the pressure of this one too, we want to have the greatest show we’ve ever done because there are so many eyes on this, we want to have a great first impression.”-Britt Baker
No matches have been announced for All In yet as AEW’s focus has seemingly been elsewhere, namely on the launch of Collision, a very successful Forbidden Door event with New Japan Pro Wrestling, and the Blood & Guts match, which will happen on the July 19 episode of Dynamite. All Out is scheduled for the weekend after All In, emanating from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois. As one of the top stars in the women’s division, Baker will almost certainly have a match on the All In card. We will provide updates regarding the match card as we get them.
