The Tooth and Nail Match belonged on the main card
Britt Baker was sorely missed at Double or Nothing earlier this year because she has become such a great character since she turned heel. Unfortunately, The Mayor of Brittsburgh had to sit out after she sustained an injury during the week of the event.
Baker has still been a fixture on AEW programming over the last few months even though she hasn’t been able to compete. Her ongoing feud with Big Swole has created several memorable moments. As a result, their eventual blow-off match at AEW All out picked up a lot of steam.
Swole defeated Baker, Reba, and Penelope Ford in a handicap match on the Aug. 27 episode of Dynamite, granting her the right to choose the stipulation for their one-on-one match at All Out. Last week, she revealed that they would compete in a Tooth and Nail match.
AEW initially caught some flack for putting the match on the Buy-In, similar to what they did with Baker vs. Bea Priestley at Full Gear 2019. Thankfully, Tony Kahn heard this criticism loud and clear and made the right decision to put it on the main card.
Baker and Swole opened All Out with a wildly-entertaining cinematic match that took place at a dentist’s office. The match had a perfect runtime. It didn’t overstay its welcome and it didn’t feel too short.
It was a fantastic showcase of both characters as Baker used plenty of props in the best use of status as a dentist. In the end, Swole picked up the win with the use of Dirty Dancing and anesthesia.
