Jamie Hayter made her AEW arrival on the inaugural episode of Rampage, aligning with then AEW Women’s Champion Britt Baker.
Hayter helped Baker to a number of successful championship defences during the Doctor’s reign, and despite Baker losing her title to Thunder Rosa earlier this year, the pair’s alliance has remained strong.
Hayter recently revealed during an interview with WhatCulture however, that if she hadn’t initially aligned with Baker in August of last year, then she’d have eyes on joining The Blackpool Combat Club instead.
“If I wasn’t with Britt, I would be gunning to go to the BCC. It’s just because they kick ass. That’s my shit. They do the stuff I love doing. I’m a bit rough around the edges and things like that, like a usual British person is. I would love to be under their wing and learn from them and be more of a lethal weapon. I’ll be the new Steve Blackman [laughs].”-Jamie Hayter
The current BCC lineup sees Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley and Wheeler Yuta all united under the leadership of British wrestling legend William Regal.
When asked about learning from Regal backstage in AEW, Hayter responded with the following:
“It’s fantastic. Especially being here, all we want to do is learn. Everybody just wants to get better and put out a really good product for TV, which we do, but personally, if I want to improve, you want to pick these people’s brains like a Regal, Arn Anderson, Dean Malenko, Jerry Lynn, all these amazing performers and people who have been in the business for such a long time. You can just go up to them and talk. It’s crazy. I never thought I could go up to Regal and be like, ‘I’d like to pick your brain about something. What do you think about this?’ It’s great and very handy. In the short time of being here, I have learned a lot and made the most of the fact that there are so many incredible people there.”-Jamie Hayter
Hayter will be in action on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite, teaming with Britt Baker to take on Ruby Soho and Toni Storm.
