AEW Star Responds To Criticism Of Women’s Division

During a recent appearance on the Pro Wrestling Junkies show, Christopher Daniels of SCU has responded to criticism that fans have for the AEW women’s division.

Christopher Daniels, who also AEW’s current Head of Talent Relations, spoke about the women’s division during the Q&A show and suggested that the issue is a lack of TV time:

“I feel like we’ve made some great strides as far as getting women involved in our company. The signing of Serena Deeb and Kris Statlander – we started out with Nyla Rose, Hikaru Shida and Riho. Adding those girls and talent, like Ivelisse and Diamante, these are all steps to building a viable women’s division. I feel like the difficulty we have is having a single two-hour show every week, and it’s difficult with all these people fighting to be on TV.

“The women are in that same boat. It’s difficult to show everybody off when you only have two hours. When Turner extended us for four years, they talked about doing a second show. When that second show comes around, hopefully we’ll have a better opportunity to showcase more men and women. With that added real estate, we should see more people take that opportunity to come to the forefront and show what they can do.”

One of the only real issues that people have had with AEW thus far is its booking of the women’s division, with many feeling that the women are given the same time and opportunities as the men.
