Re: Riho is my favorite female wrestler in AEW
I always think the first women's champ should be someone who have a decent reign for a few months, have good to great matches, and make the title legit and something special.
Riho for me is a talent, but she's someone I don't think is a long term champ imo. She's a plucky underdog type, have two or three title matches and loses it . Nyla is nowhere ready for that spot yet, she's got potential for sure and once it clicks for her. She be a great heel champ in a year or two time. But right now she shouldn't be the first champ. I suppose Riho winning it wouldn't be awful but she wouldn't have been my first choice.
That's the problem with the women's division, some say they lack big stars which is true. But more so for me, they really lack top workers who can go out and have matches that will stand up or steal the show at PPV. It's still the division right now that weakens AEW, I think their main event and tag team divisions are great, their mid card is good but their women's division is really lacking.
