Nia Jax on entering Men’s Rumble, WWE moving forward with intergender wrestling?

After shocking the world and taking out R-Truth to become the 30th entrant in the Men’s Royal Rumble, the Irresistible Force Nia Jax dominated as she took down Rey Mysterio, Andrade, Randy Orton, Dolph Ziggler and then eliminated rising star Mustafa Ali with ease.

It took a 6-1-9 from Rey Mysterio, an RKO from Randy Orton and a baseball slide from Rey to finally eliminate Jax and cap a very strong showing. She took to Twitter to give her thoughts following the event:

On the actual appearance, it appears that WWE was testing the waters and intergender competition may become more prominent down the line. Dave Meltzer of had the following to say about the situation:

“I think the idea is they want to slowly bring in because this is the first time that a woman has taken punishment from a guy and if you’re going to do it the first them then you do it with a really big woman that’s bigger than most of the guys. So that way people are gonna go, ‘It’s not really… the woman’s really big.’ So when you ease it in that’s one of the things they like to do.”

What do you guys think of Jax’ surprise appearance last night? Would you be down for inter-gender wrestling in the future or is it something that is too taboo in this day and age to be acceptable?

    Baahhhhh I see what you did there.

    Was this guy not watching when Chyna spent most of her career competing with men? Twice in the Royal Rumble, 2 or 3 time Intercontinental champion (depending on how ypu look at it) and at one point number one contender for the WWF championship. So let’s not pretend this is new or even close to the same level at what we have seen before

    Good, no more of this “Don’t hit a girl” mentality, if a pyscho b**** hits a man first, man has the right to fight back

    It was a surprise, yes. I’d hardly say it “shocked the world”. What it was, was pointless.

    Or Mae Young through a table, lol

    Little interactions in matches is alright, but full on matches I say no!

    I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when there was guy on girl violence. I personally felt offended and immediately cancelled my network subscription in protest of these disgusting scenes. This was a huge mistake on WWE is part having Nia jax enter the men’s rumble and then have her taking abuse from guys like it’s some domestic dispute. Not cool WWE at all.

    I was not shock in fact I actually thought Becky Lynch was going to enter the men Royal Rumble and actually win it. So I was expecting something was going to happen.

    This is the first time a woman has taken punishment from men?
    It’s almost like matches like Lita vs Malenko never happened.

    I think they mentioned Beth competing in both a men’s and women’s rumble atleast 2-3 times and thinking it was odd for them to bring it up so much.

  • D_Ohm

    I don’t think it’s taboo so much as it’s not believable under most circumstances. Nia is not most circumstances. Sable powerbombing Marc Mero killed his career because nobody wanted to work with him. That said losing to Chyna didn’t necessarily derail Jeff Jarrett & Chavo recovered from Jacquelin beating him. You could easily see Nia or say Shayna mowing down cruiser weights, maybe even winning the IC title. You can’t picture that for let’s say Sasha or Alexa.

    Did we? I was pretty shocked…

    This isn’t Vince’s idea is what I think. This is popular in some indy crowds, which Vince will have no clue about. He pays people to look at that stuff, literally. Nia got eliminated by Becky, took the finishers of 3 men and the people who hated her were online last night complaining about her doing this. To Vince, it will be another example of if I give you want you want, you’ll still complain anyway.

    There is not going to be an intergender wrestling. Look we all had that funny feeling one of the women wrestlers was going to enter the men Royal Rumble. But that is the end of that.
