The responsible ones. AEW has come a very long way in a very short amount of time. Despite debuting only about six and a half months ago, the company has jumped straight into a head to head battle with NXT, even defeating them in overall viewership and ratings more often than not. Their Dynamite show is a great mixture of all kinds of things, including a women’s division. So who is in charge of the thing?
The AEW women’s division has been a bit of a divisive point for the company so far. A lot of the talent are not that well known to the American audiences and the Riho, the inaugural Women’s Champion, won the title over the much larger Nyla Rose. The division has been growing though and the matches have been high quality, and that is at least somewhat to the credit of the coaches. Now we know who they are.
This is interesting. Check out an interview with one of the AEW coaches:
Dustin Rhodes was a guest on the Dropkick DiSKussions podcast where he mentioned that he was one of the four trainers in charge of the women’s division. Rhodes is helping coach the division, along with Brandi Rhodes, Awesome Kong and Kenny Omega. This is one of the first public mentions of anyone other than Omega having a hand in the division, as Omega has been mentioned as being in charge of the entire division.
The women’s division is pretty varied. Check out some of the bigger moments:
Opinion: The women’s division certainly has its negatives and its positives, which is going to be the case for almost any part of any given wrestling company. AEW is certainly giving it some attention though and that is a good thing. It still needs a lot of work but they have a unique enough crop of talent to make it something interesting. Now just figure out a way to work out the kinks and everything should be fine.
