• Reason Behind Kenny Omega’s Disappointing Singles Run In AEW

AEW World Tag Team Champion Kenny Omega hasn’t done much as a singles competitor in AEW so far, and fans are disappointed by that, as he was a top singles wrestler during his time in NJPW.

According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW’s plan is to use Omega to build other wrestlers in the first year of the company, and then Omega will be used as a standalone singles star in the second year of AEW, where Omega will be pushed as a singles main eventer.

Omega recently said the following about criticism regarding his singles push in AEW:

“Because I decided to take a different path in my career, because I’m not doing these long, drawn-out 45 [minute] to one-hour matches in singles competition, it doesn’t mean that I’m not the same guy.

This isn’t about tooting my own horn, but it’s like I’m now helping run a company that has live television every Wednesday.

I’m part of a very successful tag team with ‘Hangman’ Adam Page, a guy that I have a lot of chemistry with. And I’m existing within a division of guys that are amongst the top of all the tag teams on all of the planet and showing that it takes more than just having a good, long singles match to be called the best in the world.”
