AEW recently pulled back the curtain on the backstage lives of select stars with the premiere of “AEW All Access “.
A group of stars in the center of the show are Adam Cole and Britt Baker, who have been in a relationship since 2017. Recently, they spoke with the orlando sentinel about the beginning of their relationship.
“He was a big shot with Ring of Honor and I was the miserable little indie my first year of wrestling,” Baker said, “For me, because he was such a well-known wrestler, I wasn’t really interested at first. I’ve been warned about this, no way, I’m not going to deal with this.”
Baker began training to fight in 2015 while also in dental school . At the same time, Cole was already a former Ring of Honor world champion. The couple finally met on the dating app Bumble in 2016.
“He was so persistent. For months, she said, I’d love to ask you out on a date. He was so polite, so kind. And then he went to New Japan for WrestleKingdom (in January 2017). She was texting. the whole time he was in Japan, when he obviously had a lot going on,” Baker said, “he was sending me things like, ‘Hey, I know it’s early there, but have a good day at school today.’ That was very sweet. So I was like, ‘you know what, I need to go on a date with this guy.
Cole and Baker were finally able to make it to that appointment, both driving almost three hours for the occasion. The couple was left out for six hours and finally had to drive home in a snowstorm. The rest is history.
