Kenny Omega spearheaded the AEW Women’s Division as part of his role as Executive Vice President of the company. This included picking people he not only trusts, but has worked with before.
During Wrestlers Ordering Room Service Kenny Omega opened up about his desire to form a mixed tag team with Riho. This is something they’ve done before in Japan and he’s working on it in his “downtime.” We’ll just have to see how long it takes to materialize in an AEW ring.
“I’m really having a chance now to try new things and one of the things I wanted to show was, my vision for what women’s wrestling can or should be to everyone in America that hasn’t seen these types of matches. It’s really cool that, slowly but surely, we’re getting into this groove of displaying the kind of talent that hasn’t been available to everyone. In my downtime, I’m trying to do this mixed match thing with Riho. We did it before, it’s just a shame we can’t do it in America, yet. We’re hoping, eventually, in an AEW ring. Way down the line.”
Odds are AEW will stay away from intergender wrestling. Tony Khan’s statements on the matter were quite clear. There might be the possibility of Kenny Omega and Riho working a match with each other as a team. They just need to find opponents to make the angle work.
