Kenny Omega on His Vision for AEW’s Trios Division

A recent episode of the Busted Open Radio podcast had Kenny Omega as the guest. One of the topics discussed included Omega’s thoughts on his current vision for AEW’s Trios division.

“It’s a lot of fun. For me, it’s tough to keep doing the same things over and over and over again, especially when you feel you’ve been plagued in that particular area. I could do a certain type of singles all the time, and find a certain amount of success with it, even tags have become that way as well. Not to say that those don’t excite me, I always look forward to doing what I can to tell a unique story or something different. This is completely different. It’s a chance to present something that we are familiar with, but to now have a division and a title in that division, it’s the chance to make it become its own thing. We want to take this chance to really develop a division that will visually look like something different than a singles or tag match. Not just because of the bodies involved, but just because of the possibility of the interactions available. That part excites me and by the way we perform these things, it will open up scenes and moments and scenarios that you couldn’t have created or dreamt up without the amount of bodies that a trios match allows for.”
