What are you talking about man... they not even dating. They go way back sure but that is just random. Has nothing to do with anything.
Obviously that much is baseless speculation. That being said my main point was that I wouldn't be shocked that Kenny would be playing favorites with his friends. I enjoy Riho regardless but yeah.

Hey if he really wanted to play favorites, Shida would be the first champion because they were PRETTY close.

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.

I would take Riho all day over Nyla Rose. Riho is a very very likeable underdog with a great natural ability in the ring not too mention her experience. I just feel like this is AEW pushing Nyla Rose so they can you know market her as an "empowering" first transgender champion blah blah. You can see it coming. I just like Riho a lot more then Nyla. I get Daniel Bryan underdog vibes from Riho. She could possibly be the Daniel Bryan of the womens division. I could see her get super over, it's just hard not to love her, look at her she's just a sweetheart, smiling to the ring always looks so happy. She genuinely loves wrestling and it shows through the screen. It's contagious.

Meh. Good to see she has a following but I'm not a fan personally. She's too tiny for my liking. I'd rather they push Ivalisse or Mercedes Martinez.

That's kinda part of the appeal to see the smaller wrestler push through adversity. Hence an underdog. Also helps she is freaking adorable and good wrestler. Just makes me want to root for someone like that. Seems like a sweet person too.

I can definitely understand why you're a fan. She does seem like a sweet girl and everyone loves an underdog. Hopefully she does get to hold the women's gold at some point.

My favorite is Britt Baker, but I think that's just because I like cute brunettes :D

Riho being in the first time match is fine, but it being against Nyla is such a mistake. The crowd is going to be so quite for that match and it's on the first show and the first women's champion and that is not the crowd reaction you want for that match. How Britt Baker is not in the first title match is flabbergasting to me.

Yuka eats her for breakfast

I said it!
I love Yuka too. Riho is still the GOAT.

I don't know man I like Britt Baker but she lacks in the charisma category.

I wouldn't even argue with you about that, but compare the pop Britt Baker got in the Casino Royale match to that of Riho and Nyla's. 10 times what either of those other ladies got easily.

I think because she gets brownie points for being Adam Cole's gal.

Well yeah Britt Baker got a pop because they heavily promoted her. People know who she is. Japanese womens wrestling is so niche I doubt anyone really knew Riho before she was signed. I mean some people knew her but not many. I don't think people are going to pop for her without knowing her. I still think she has potential to win the fans over.

As for Britt Baker yeah she has potential but the charisma is lacking. I mean she is a Dentist I can't think of a more boring profession then that. She's also quite green in the ring. The potential is there for sure she is good looking and has shown spots of brilliance in the ring. Time will tell.
