More on why WWE Balked at the Nia Jax/Dean Ambrose Intergender Match

Posted By James Walsh on 02/10/19


A new report has details on why an intergender “special attraction” between Nia Jax and Dean Ambrose was advertised but isn’t happening. As reported below, WWE has confirmed that the ad was “incorrect” and/or “outdated” and the match isn’t taking place. According to Ringside News, this is due to an upset sponsor.

The site notes that this is a rumor within the company, so take it for that. That said, the rumor is that a WWE sponsor contacted the company and said that they don’t want to deal with a company that supports intergender wrestling. That would be more than enough for WWE to change their mind on the match as the financial value of sponsors can’t be ignored, particularly for a concept that isn’t core to the brand or storylines like an intergender match on a live event.
