Still a strange thing to say from Omega considering over half of AEW’s roster is even less known than the NXT roster.

By his analogy if NXT stars are in the dark matches are Darby Allen, MJF & Jungle Boy working as fake ‘police’ or the at the concession stands??

Don't worry about it. There's a weird contingent of wrestling nerds whose life goal is to bring down the big company and for the small in-superior company to succeed. A bit like their social life/interactions. See- Dave Meltzer

I get the impression that Kenny thinks NXT is a crap development territory like OVW or Deep South.
He's not wrong when most of the people to come out of NXT who've made it really huge were already stars on other (albeit lesser) programs. Not sure how much "development" went into guys like KO or Gargano.

In terms of new talent that they're properly developed themselves, there's not a huge bunch of them.

I don't see it as a developmental brand, it's a 3rd brand and arguably the best brand WWE has in terms of quality. The performance centre and NXT house shows maybe is more focused on development, but TV and more-so Takeovers have great talent on there and not heaps of green wrestlers. To say Gargano, Ciampa, Cole, Velv Dream, Strong, Redragon, Riddle etc would be doing dark matches in AEW is stupid. This promotion is booking The Dark Order ffs.

Velveteen Dream would be the pick of them.

Roman Reigns, Baron Corbin, not so much.
