– Speaking to My Mom’s Basement with Robbie Fox, AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker spoke about Tony Khan having a problem with germs. She’s also credited Chris Jericho for how he’s helped with her career. Below are some highlights (via per Wrestling Inc).

Britt Baker on Tony Khan being scared of germs: “He does not like germs. He’ll give the fist bump, not a really big hand shaker guy, has his hand sanitizer with him all the time. Smart, right? Smart. After the Lights Out Match with Thunder Rosa, I’m covered in blood, like dripping blood, sweat, gross. He came up to me and gave me the biggest hug ever. And he’s like a germaphobe, so I’m like, ‘oh, this must’ve been pretty good if Tony is hugging me right now because I’m disgusting.’ So that was cool.”

Dr. Baker on how Chris Jericho has helped her career: “Chris Jericho, definitely. He’s helped my career, specifically my promo skills more than probably anybody. Cody, early on. Kenny Omega is more passionate about women’s wrestling than anybody I’ve ever met, so that’s really cool. And then, I mean, I work so closely one on one with Tony Khan. To have as much hands-on as he does, but then still have every freakin’ thing else under the sun going on that he does, this man has more than 100% in the tank. That’s the only way to explain how he does what he does because he’s all over the place and he’s 100% committed to whatever he does.”
