AEW’s women’s division is trending upward
AEW’s women’s division has been the subject of its fair share of criticism and rightfully so. However, AEW All Out proved there is plenty of talent left on this depleted roster.
It has been a catastrophic year for the division for sure. The COVID-19 pandemic forced the company to change plans that could’ve helped to elevate several of its potential stars. Even worse, AEW lost some key figures like Bea Priestley and Kris Statlander, and the former champion, Riho, has been unavailable due to travel restrictions.
Nevertheless, Britt Baker, Big Swole, and Hikaru Shida are the future of the women’s division. The company has a good core but they need to continue to build around them. What AEW has done with Anna Jay, Tay Conti, and Penelope Ford is a step in the right direction but they need to be consistent.
The women shined on a pay-per-view event that had several issues. Hopefully, they get the response they deserve and AEW sees that women’s wrestling needs to be a focal point on their programming going forward.
