Kenny Omega Talks About Being Frustrated By The AEW Women's Roster Having Limited TV Time

He thinks they will have their own show eventually...

Often on episodes of Dynamite, All Elite Wrestling's women will only have one or two segments on the show. AEW Executive Vice President Kenny Omega is ultimately in charge of recruiting talent for the women's roster and helps book their matches and segments. During a recent interview with Bleacher Report, The Cleaner admitted he was frustrated by the limited TV time the women have.

Omega said: "It's the most frustrating and rewarding feeling at the same time. We have a vision for this women's division that I always wanted to have at the forefront. It's like, 'OK Kenny, you've got the reigns. Do what you can with five minutes of TV time.' Wait a minute, we've got this huge, expansive roster, you have people chomping at the bit, raring to go. How am I going to introduce all these people with five minutes? How am I going to show just what makes them special?"

However, Omega did admit that the women have been "hitting home runs" with the limited time they have to showcase themselves.

The AEW World Tag Team Champion added: "Britt Baker, if you just go based on her reactions, is probably the top heel in the whole company. They are taking these little, small, minuscule opportunities that we are awarded and these women are hitting home runs. They succeeded with their one-minute, two-minute segments, so they get their five minutes and that's gonna grow to six, seven, eight and nine and they're gonna have their own show one day."
