The last time that a dentist was used in wrestling dates back to 1995, when Glen Jacobs, who would craft a WWE Hall of Fame career as Kane, wrestled Bret “Hitman” Hart at an In Your House Pay-Per-View as Dr. Isaac Yankem.
Fast forward to 2021, and a real dentist, Britt Baker D.D.S. is among the stars of All-Elite Wrestling’s (AEW) women’s division. Testament to her potential as the future foundation of the burgeoning promotion involved her exhilarating match versus Thunder Rosa.
Billed as a Lights Out, No DQ Match, it marked a unique brush with history as the Baker vs Rosa confrontation marked the first time that a women’s match was the main event on AEW Dynamite.
