On tonight’s Rampage, AEW Women’s World Champion Dr. Britt Baker took on Anna Jay in a non-title grudge match. Baker would pull off the win after causing the submission from the Lock Jaw.
After the match was over, Baker wasn’t finished with Anna Jay as she locked in the submission hold once again before the number one ranking Tay Conti rushed to the ring to make the save. As the number one ranking woman, Conti is next in line for the championship as she held up the belt to end the segment after chasing Baker out of the ring who regrouped with Jamie Hayter and Rebel on the outside.
Who do you think will end up making it to the finals of the TBS Women’s Title bracket?
