Kenny Omega Wants AEW Rampage To Be A Home For More Women's Wrestling

Kenny Omega still wants the women's division showcased more.

Omega has been a big proponent in highlighting the AEW women's division, having a hand in producing and bringing in talent. Omega previously preached patience going into 2020 after fans complained about the lack of women's wrestling and women showcased on Dynamite in 2019.

While AEW has lessened criticisms with the women's division thanks to Britt Baker's rise, fans are still wondering if more women's wrestling will be showcased in AEW.

"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," said Omega on Wrestling Observer Radio.

Omega went to say that he wants to keep the variety in AEW and believes Rampage will continue to showcase just that. He also praised AEW women's talent like Jade Cargill, Penelope Ford, Britt Baker, Serena Deeb, and others for working hard.

AEW Rampage debuts on Friday, August 13.
