INJURY AT AEW FIGHT FOR THE FALLEN
Unfortunately, at last night’s Fight for the Fallen pay per view, Britt Baker seems to have suffered a concussion. Britt and Riho took on Bea Priestley and Shoko Nakajima in a losing effort.
Halfway through the match, Baker looked a little unhappy, after the match we would discover that she’d suffered a concussion. How this was discovered is almost a story in its self.
Aubrey Edwards officiated the match and tweeted after that while hurriedly leaving the venue she lost an earring she’d worn in almost every match she’s refereed.
Aubrey failed to mention why she’d rushed off, leaving it for Britt to clear up. Apparently, Aubrey had spent the evening looking after a concussed Baker.

Tamina stayed down in the ring following the match for an extended time, before being helped to the back.
