Joey Ryan Defends Intergender Wrestling Matches

In a series of posts on Twitter, Joey Ryan spoke about those who have a problem with intergender wrestling on the grounds that it’s ‘unrealistic.’ Ryan teamed with Candice LeRae on the independent scene as part of the ‘World’s Cutest Tag Team.’ He wrote:

I’m not saying that anybody has to be a fan of any certain kind of wrestling, intergender included but I am saying to write it off as unrealistic or say it shouldn’t be included promotes inequality by insinuating women can’t even pretend to be equals in a make believe world.

Nobody is forced to watch it or be a fan of it. It has every right to exist though.

When people talk “unrealistic” in wrestling, I never see age brought up. Some are quick to compare it to combat sports and it’s rare in those to see 40 somethings beat 20 somethings but it’s a regular occurrence in pro wrestling. Age, size & gender stories can all be told. https://t.co/xv9esPM94v
