Kenny Omega was put in charge of the AEW Women’s Division where he pieces together matchups and the action fans see in the ring. In recent months, when The Cleaner has been busy with other things, he said that Dustin Rhodes is a godsend for being able to help carry that load a bit.
AEW has big goals for the company, and Kenny Omega’s work with the Women’s Division is also constant. While speaking to Wrestling Observer Radio, Omega spoke about his goals for the AEW Women’s Division. At the end of the day, what they really need is more time in the ring.
“For us it’s like I just feel that we need more time in front of the camera. That’s all. I would love to get our girls on TV more. I would love our own show.”
Omega said it’s been a struggle, but his goal is to have women-online events and “big time pay-per-view matches.” He would like to get to that point eventually. He feels there is “no limit,” but it’s a “matter of things falling into place.”
Kenny Omega put over the Serena Deeb vs Thunder Rosa NWA Women’s Title match. He called their initial lockup “the most believable of the entire show.” He said AEW is looking to “bring anyone in from anywhere” as long as “you’re willing to work hard, that’s the kind of division I want to build.”
The pandemic and injuries really set AEW’s Women’s Division back, but they continued on, and now they have a lot of possibilities in the future. Their Joshi talent and others from outside the USA like Bea Priestley, Sadie Gibbs, and even Shazza McKenzie could no longer make trips to perform. Kenny Omega is certainly working hard to make sure that all of those women have the best AEW Women’s Division to perform in once they are permitted to freely travel once again.
