An injury to Britt Baker on this past Wednesday night's AEW Dynamite has forced a match change for the Double Or Nothing PPV on Saturday night. AEW revealed on Friday evening that Penelope Ford will replace Baker in her scheduled match against Kris Statlander on the show. Baker, who has been on a run with some of the best work of her career, suffered an unfortunate right knee injury during Dynamite. Competing in a tag team match, Baker's teammate Nyla Rose was dropped on her knee by Statlander and Hikaru Shida, causing the apparent injury.
Baker reportedly underwent an MRI on Thursday, but the results of that MRI have not publicly been revealed. AEW is expected to reveal more information during the Double Or Nothing PPV event on Saturday night.
While this is unquestionably a very unfortunate circumstance for Baker, it's an opportunity for Ford to step in and show that she is one to watch in the AEW women's division.
