AEW’s Women’s Division has been the subject of criticism, but they are always working to make things better for everyone involved. Signing Thunder Rosa to a deal will give that division a new full-time star, but they have a lot of work to do. There is home that AEW Rampage, the company’s upcoming TBS show, will help give them a platform to perform.
While speaking to Wrestling Observer Radio, Kenny Omega expressed a desire to feature women’s wrestling on Ramage. He hopes for the new hour-long TBS show, premiering on August 13th, to offer those stars a chance to gain even more exposure as so many are fighting for a spot.
“The content I think we’re lacking is in our women’s division. I would love to see Rampage be a home to more women’s wrestling. I want people to see and appreciate and enjoy the talent we have to offer. I hope we get to show some of these matches that perhaps aren’t seen by those people. We have a lot of great talent on Dark and people maybe don’t want to watch our YouTube channel. Maybe they just want to watch Dynamite and want to see a television product. I get that.”
“I think the extra hour with Rampage, rather than give them more Chris Jericho, more Kenny Omega, more MJF and the guys you know you’re going to see on Dynamite; I’d rather give them all of the extremely talented individuals that maybe you don’t see that week. I feel like we have incredibly gifted female wrestlers that have been working very hard and fighting for a spot and maybe it’s time for them to get more. I think that would count as a variation on more women’s wrestling. We always try to have a variant,”
AEW Rampage will air at 10:00 PM every Friday. Pro wrestling fans will have Rampage right after SmackDown, but we’ll just have to see how many of them turn the channel from Fox to TBS after the blue brand’s weekly show is over. This could be a very interesting thing to witness as AEW continues their expansion.
