Dustin Rhodes Believes AEW Women’s Division Is “Thriving”

Jamie Hayter, Reba & Britt Baker

Despite some criticism in the past, Dustin Rhodes is confident in the direction of the AEW women’s division.

In the early days of AEW, there were criticisms leveled at what was happening for the women of AEW, with particular stock put in the lack of television time they were given. However, having grown stars like Britt Baker in the early days and now current Women’s Champion Jamie Hayter alongside bringing in stars such as Saraya, Toni Storm and Ruby Soho, that perception is quickly changing.

One man who also believes in the current course is Dustin Rhodes. Whilst also still competing in what could be his final year as an active wrestler, he is also heavily involved as a coach.

In a discussion on Busted Open Radio, Dustin Rhodes has talked about how he feels the division is now thriving due to the hard work being put in all round.

I feel really good about it because if you look back to day one, they’ve grown so much. They’re still coming to my training practices every week, and we drill, we teach new things, we fix wrongs, things like that, and we just do it every single week, and that repetition and get them a little loose, with my talking about the audience and making people feel something.

To me, I believe they’re doing an excellent job, and I believe our women’s division is only gonna get stronger and stronger. It’s really good right now, and I’m happy to see it because it took some time to get there, and it’s there, and we’re kind of thriving in that area.

Dustin Rhodes also opened up on why he may have wanted his brother Cody to win at WrestleMania 39, but he is pleased they are making him “earn it”.
