Charlotte Flair gives her opinion on possibility of intergender matches in WWE

During an interview with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan, ‘The Queen’ Charlotte Flair gave her thoughts on the possibility of inter gender wrestling given Nia Jax’ recent actions:

“So at first when I was asked that question, ‘Do you want to wrestle the guys?’ I’m like, no, because I just think it’s harder storytelling-wise. I mean, it’s easy to wrestle a guy. It’s easy entertainment, it’s an easy — it’s whatever. It’s harder to tell a good story when you’re wrestling all female talent. But I thought Nia looked like a star and killed it on Sunday, and she added a lot to the men’s Rumble. She really did.

”Now I don’t think they could have just thrown anyone in there. I think a lot of it was Nia’s presence, her size. She could handle it. So now I don’t know, maybe it will open the doors, but I don’t think it’s something that should be every week. I think it’s something that has to be once every year, a novelty. Or else it takes away from the special uniqueness of it. I don’t want to see that every week. I’m sorry, I don’t.”

So, we have one of the company’s top female stars saying she is ok with intergender matches on rare occasions, do you agree? Sound off in the comments section.

    Oh Charlotte, your sheltered, WWE bred ignorance is truly displayed here. Intergender wrestling is only taboo in WWE, the rest of the world does it fairly regularly. The reason it doesn’t happen in WWE is real world politics. When Linda McMahon decided to run for political office, the WWE shifted to the PG Era to avoid creating content that could damage her chances. PG Era began in 2008, Linda announced her Candidacy for Connecticut’s Senate in 2009, coincidence? I think not! Intergender matches could be interpreted as Linda McMahon condoning abuse against women, not exactly the way to get into political office. Let us not forget that Chyna held the Intercontinental championship twice between 1999-2000.

    Intergender matches could work just fine in WWE if creative were in fact creative.

    lol when typing that up they may have miss worded it. Unless it says that on the source they linked to also? I didn’t bother to go there….

  • Darrin Tyler

    I actually agree. When it comes to a story they could do a feud like thing maybe for one of the big PPVs like Survivor Series for example would be a good one. Or one of the others. But also it would only work with wreslter’s that could handle the men, for example actually be able to wrestle them pick them up and do moves to them. You’re not going to see someone as tiny as Sasha doing a woman vs men match, it’d make no sense size wise unless they have her go up agains’t a 205 wrestler? I know it’s just a show and size usually doesn’t matter but sometimes it does if you want to make it look good/real at least.

    Confusing wording aside, she makes a valid point. It’s a very character and story specific occurrence that should be used sparingly.

  • AmishPatel

    Yes, I thought that. Slightly contradictory.

    That is the most confusing answer I have ever seen. First of all she says “Do you want to wrestle the guys?’ I’m like, no, because I just think it’s harder storytelling-wise”., then a few seconds later she says ” It’s harder to tell a good story when you’re wrestling all female talent”.

    So which is harder then, because apparently they are both hard “story telling wise”.
