Originally published at Britt Baker was informed of AEW All Access concept before Adam Cole signed
She reiterated that she did not think Adam Cole would be willing to participate.
Thus far, there have been three episodes of AEW: All Access on TBS. The next episode is scheduled to air after the 4/26 Dynamite.
One of the featured talents on the show is former AEW Women’s World Champion Britt Baker. Britt and Adam Cole have been doing media to promote All Access and one of the outlets they spoke with was 13WHAM ABC Rochester.
Britt shared that she was initially approached about the concept of All Access prior to Adam Cole signing with the company in 2021.
They (AEW) approached me originally and talked about how I’m a dentist and a wrestler and if I would be willing to have that filmed as a docuseries and at first, I was kind of taken aback because for me, it’s just my life and it’s not that interesting so I was like, ‘Are you sure? You wanna make this on a show?…’ Adam (Cole) was not with AEW yet so he wasn’t even an option to be part of this so then when he finally did sign with All Elite Wrestling, they were so excited. They said, ‘Oh my gosh, will he be a part of this? Will he let us in his life?…’ And I said, ‘I don’t think he’s gonna do it. I think that’s a big no’ and he surprised me, he surprised all of us when he said, ‘Yes. Of course, I would love to’ and right before we started filming, he had the second head injury and I thought, oh boy, that’s a wrap and again, he surprised me when he said, ‘No, I wanna film this. I want everybody to see what I’m going through and what this sport, what this world is.’
