Bryan Danielson: People Backstage In WWE Were Saying ‘Women’s Wrestling Should Not Be Like Thunder Rosa vs. Britt Baker’

Bryan Danielson sheds some light on how the matches between Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker were perceived behind the scenes in WWE.

Thunder Rosa and Britt Baker took part in a Lights Out Anything Goes Match at AEW Dynamite: St. Patrick's Day Slam 2021. The match was a violent and bloody culmination of that stage in the ongoing rivalry between the two women and it was also one of the first times that North American women's wrestlers competed in such a violent match on television.

Bryan Danielson, who was working in WWE at the time as Daniel Bryan, says that behind the scenes at WWE, there was a shared sentiment that women's wrestling should not feature that level of violence. In Bryan's opinion, that match helped get women's wrestling and AEW to the next level.

"There was a ton of hoopla backstage in WWE when Britt wrestled Thunder Rosa and it was bloody," Danielson recalled during a recent SXSW Panel. "There were a bunch of people backstage saying, ‘Women’s wrestling should not be like that. This is horrible. We would never do that.’ Except, if you’re talking about equal rights, letting women go out there and do things that men do. That kind of match took Britt and women’s wrestling and AEW to the next level. You’d watch it and be like, ‘These women are stars.’"

    the whole point is that if you have a 5'6 girl taking a piledriver through furniture and still going another 20 minutes in the ring then what the frick are the men supposed to do. how is anyone supposed to sell being hit with a barbwire bat in the face when a girl half their size takes 10 of those and that's still not the end of her match

    Based. Stop trying to get women's wrestling over as a draw. WWE would love to say they have an annual women's paperview but they found out the hard way it doesn't draw and that's why aew hasn't done it to try and get one up on wwe. Even nwa only did one or two before they found out

      This is a chicken or the egg question. Does women's wrestling draw poorly because it is booked poorly or because it is inherently bad?

    I find it funny that fans are complaining about this match but then turn around and talk about how awesome the NXT women's war game matches are.

    Literally take the blood out of the Rosa/Baker match and what is the difference?

    Ahh the 3 letter that determines the promotion.

      Wrestling is a male sport and female wrestlers only exist as a sexual fantasy, that's why Rhea Ripley draws more than any uggo in AEW today and that's an actual fact.

      Considering that you are basing your entire promotion on his ratings, I'd say he does, sir.
