Konnan doesn’t think AEW is using certain wrestlers to their full potential

Konnan made an appearance on Instinct Culture with Denise Salcedo to talk about a wide range of topics.

During the interview, he spoke about which wrestlers he thinks AEW is not using to their best ability. This is where he named the likes of Kenny Omega, Santana, Ortiz, and The Lucha Brothers.

It should be noted that all of these stars have been featured on television as Santana and Ortiz are part of the Inner Circle, which is led by Chris Jericho.

On the flip side, Omega hasn’t been pushed as a main event talent but did have a long run as an AEW Tag Team Champion with Adam Page.

“They’re both super talented and it’s really weird to me that in AEW I don’t think they’re really being used to the best of their ability. Because whatever they have Pentagon and Fenix doing now, it almost felt like okay, we have all these guys, we don’t really have anything for them yet,  let’s just do something with them all together just to throw them in the ring.

Pentagon and Fenix are on a whole other level, they really are.  And same thing with Santana and Ortiz, I personally am not feeling this thing they are doing with the Best Friends but other people do like it. I don’t, I know they can be used in another capacity. So I would say they haven’t been used to the best of their capacity. But I would also say the same thing about Kenny Omega.

Because I’ll tell you what, if you’re a fan and they tell you ‘Hey, see that guy that’s in AEW that’s supposedly one of the best or the best technical wrestlers in the world,’ he doesn’t really come off like that. Now I am just gonna show you a big difference, it doesn’t mean I am smarter or that I am better, nothing like that, I am just gonna show you a difference. So when Kenny Omega comes to Mexico, he’s the Triple A {Lucha Libre AAA} Champion, so what we do is, we put him against the best wrestlers in Mexico… and we let him go out there, tell his story, be a rockstar, do a 30 minute great match, and the people react to him and I am not kidding you, like a rockstar. “

Konann also talked about Dominik Mysterio’s WWE Performance, his training, the next lucha star to break out in the United States, and much more.
