AEW took the world by storm back in 2019 as it was the first pro wrestling company in a very long time that made waves in the pro wrestling world as a form of competition for WWE. It was certainly a risky endeavor as well because there was always the chance it was going to end up being a huge failure. It seems Dustin Rhodes is unhappy with the current state of the AEW women’s division.
AEW has been receiving a lot of praise for its variety of pro wrestling. However, nothing is perfect as the women’s division has left a lot to be desired and has been criticized on a constant basis.
While the women’s division has certainly improved over the past year, there is still a lot of room for improvement. While speaking to Renee Paquette on “Throwing Down, Dustin Rhodes talked about AEw’s women’s division. He stated that it is not fair that women get fewer chances on AEW Dynamite and wants to change that.
“I want to get them to where they have two matches on Dynamite or Rampage. It’s not fair, but we’re getting there and making leaps and bounds. The female talent coming in are very athletic and in some cases they are just as good, if not better, than some of the guys, and that’s awesome.
I want them to get to the level that all the guys are at. They deserve that. Sometimes, it’s not fair that they don’t get those chances and now they are starting to get those chances.
They are not there yet, but they’re getting there, and they want it now. When I teach them how to do something and they do it and you see this smile on their face, that’s the payoff for me.”
Freddie Prinze Jr. also recently called for AEW to start a women’s-only show as well. It remains to be seen just how much the company will be able to improve the women’s division as well.
