like never because they almost never book intergender matches that arent total comedy. but i guess you think its really hurting the business as opposed to eight hundred bajillion hours of programming every week featuring champions jinder mahal and guy who is never here
what opinion are you projecting here? there have been dozens of stupid intergender tag matches where once one person tags, the other person in the ring has to exit so that the legal genders remain consistent. it's really awkward and stupid and the solution should be to not do them at all. also lol @ reaching to presume that i insinuated that they're the catalyst to wrestling's slow decline.

also in nxt they've had nikki cross get physically involved in matches against men on behalf of sanity and the table spot from the last takeover was really cool because of both how unexpected it was and how it demonstrated how unhinged she (and by extension her faction) could be.

Hopefully it is as a manager or writer because I think he is past his time as a wrestler and is better at creative.

Also hope that he can keep his demons at bay.

The real problem with inter gender wrestling from a company standpoint is it expose the guys who are 6”2, 225 pounds of being much smaller then that in reality. The only person whose math you can really trust in Brock’s due to UFC (Roman btw is listed as 20lb lighter then him).

People could deal with an inter gender match but it would take way more work then WwE is willing to put in.

I remember that WWF had the Bubba Ray saying "I'm gonna get you, bitch!" to Trish Stratus and threatening to power bomb her through a table, while around the same time X-Pac was kicking Torrie (?) in the face every week and calling her a bitch. The Dudley stuff was played as a goof and everyone remembers their Attitude Era antics as fun and rascally, but the X-Pac stuff was played straight and I really think it contributed to his tarnished reputation with the fans in the long run.

I'll grant you that Trish (at the time anyway) and Torrie were not viewed as serious competitors, but it's a similar scenario played out two different ways, and I know which one was rejected by even the creepy Attitude Era crowds more than the other.

I've seen a bunch of great intergender matches with awesome performers like LeRae, Lovelace, Del Ray, etc, but I've seen even more creepy weirdo intergender matches that left me feeling skeeved out. The proper balance and tone are very, very difficult to achieve, imo, and nothing about WWE makes me think they can figure it out. Leave it to the indies.

I think I was going to make a larger point here, but I'm phone posting at work and I keep getting loving interrupted, so screw it.

e: Trish, not Trash. Stupid phone.

Yeah, there's a balance you can find and better fiction does it all the time but most wrestling bookers and fanbases won't find that sweet spot and WWE sure as gently caress shouldn't be trusted to.

Nathan hires a group of wrestlers that would be sleeper cells within the organization, ready to take over the show when given the sign to wrestle the matches with their own booking decisions. Unless Vince meets their demands and brings back CM Punk ice cream bars.

Because going to TNA has always really helped people with substance abuse issues. Did wonders for Angle, the Hardys and Goldust, among others.

I'd be quite content if WWE never booked an intergender match ever again, but allow intergender matchups in the video game so I can have Roman job to a 120 pound woman and an Owen Driver '97.

I'd like to think he'd fit better in ROH but I have no idea whether they have more than one writer or if everything is just handled by Delirious.
