Dr. Britt Baker is the winner of the Owen Hart Foundation Women’s Tournament, with the finals taking place at the Double or Nothing pay-per-view.
Baker defeated Ruby Soho in the final match of the inaugural tournament. The match took place directly after Baker’s boyfriend Adam Cole won the first ever Men’s tournament, with commentary teasing that the AEW power couple could be the winners of each of their respective tournaments.
Similarly to the men’s final match, the match was very physical and saw Baker and Soho trade submissions and attempt to out wrestle their opponent. Baker attempted to use the Lockjaw submission to win the match, but Soho countered the submission attempt into pinfall, to which Baker kicked out of. At one point it looked like Ruby Soho would win the match after locking Britt Baker in the sharpshooter, but the former AEW Women’s Champion made it to the ropes. The ending of the match saw multiple roll-up attempts countered, in which Baker would eventually pick up the pinfall victory.
Baker would defeat joker entrant Maki Itoh in the quarterfinals, Toni Storm in the semi-finals and Ruby Soho in the final match to win the tournament. Ruby Soho would defeat Riho in the quarterfinals and Kris Statlander in the semi-finals to advance to Double or Nothing.
After both the men’s and women’s finals concluded, both winners were present on the entrance ramp. AEW commentator would introduce Dr. Martha Hart, who was accompanied by AEW President Tony Khan. Hart presented the prizes to winners Adam Cole and Dr. Britt Baker D.M.D. It has also been stated on commentary that the title belts that were presented to Cole and Baker are prizes for winning the tournament, as opposed to being defended on TV.
