Baker vs. Swole AEW Buy In match to be cinematic in presentation

As first discussed on last night's Wrestling Observer Radio, the Britt Baker vs. Big Swole "Tooth and Nail" match on Saturday's All Out pre-show will be cinematic in presentation.

AEW President Tony Khan confirmed the news Thursday during a media call, saying the main reasons are that Baker is still recovering from her injuries and that they will have live fans in attendance, insinuating that they want to give her more time to get the ring rust off.

Khan also answered criticism about the match being on The Buy In, saying they want to put stars on the pre-show to help sell the PPV which is a philosophy of the company's. At this point, it's believed Baker vs. Swole will be the sole pre-show match.

On WOR, Dave Meltzer said he believed the setting was going to be at Baker's dental office. The stipulations, if there are any, weren't explained when it was announced on Wednesday's Dynamite. 

The two have been feuding for months but this will mark Baker's first return to action since her knee was injured during a May episode of Dynamite.
