Joey Ryan on Inter-gender Matches

The WWE hasn’t held an inter-gender singles match in a long time, even though they are the largest wrestling promotion of the world. We recently saw Nia Jax get involved in the men’s Royal Rumble match, but that was it.

Inter-gender matches are quite a trend these days and we have seen some awesome inter-gender matches take place at various indie promotions. The indie circuit has a few very talented female superstars that are powerful and can toss a man easily.

Joey Ryan, who has more than 20 years of professional wrestling experience, spoke about inter-gender matches. He has wrestled for almost all famous promotions of the world during his 20 years in the business. He stated that inter-gender matches should never be considered as domestic violence.

Probably that is the reason why WWE refrains from holding singles inter-gender matches, besides the fact that the WWE doesn’t really require them as they make a lot of money without them. This is what he said on an Impact Media Call "I think an important difference between domestic violence and professional wrestling is consent," said Ryan.

"The wrestlers have agreed to wrestle each other…as opposed to domestic violence which isn't consented. "I'm heavy on the theatrical side of pro wrestling and there is a split as to if pro wrestling is a sport or if it's theater. I lean towards the theatrical part."
