All Elite Wrestling has announced today that Dr. Britt Baker, D.M.D. will not be able to compete at tomorrow night’s Double Or Nothing pay-per-view due to injury. Baker injured her right knee during a tag team match with Nyla Rose against Kris Statlander and Hikaru Shida. It was clear that she was hurt after she was heavily favoring her leg during the match. Baker had trouble putting weight on the knee as she continued to try to do spots to finish out the match.
Although nothing is confirmed yet by AEW, the belief is that she has a serious injury that will keep her out of action for several months. AEW will provide an update on Baker at the pay-per-view on Saturday.
As a result of the injury, Penelope Ford will replace Baker and will take on Statlander tomorrow night.
You can view the announcement in the Tweet below from the AEW Twitter account.

S.A.M.’s Spiel: This certainly does suck from Britt that she suffered this injury and is forced to pull out of her match tomorrow. I wasn’t looking forward to it very much, but she has really done wonders in the character department over the last several weeks. I hope the injury isn’t too severe and we will stay on top of this whenever AEW announces an update on her injury. We all hope for Britt to make a full recovery from this and that she can come back better than ever.
