Seth Rollins was recently interviewed by The Daily Star, where he talked about intergender wrestling. While he did not seem against the idea of facing off against a female competitor, according to him, there are “places for it.”
He then added that at the Olympics, men and women have their own events for good reason. Here is what he said:
“There are places for it. But this full on independent style women vs. men match where the women are chokeslamming the men? Our business is based in realism a little bit, so let’s do that as best we can. I think let’s live in a reality a little bit here, I am not saying women aren’t as good as men because that is not the case.”
“But there is a reason when you go to the Olympics there are men’s and women’s [sports], there is a reason you have men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s basketball. It is not they aren’t as talented, or they are not as good as athletes, but you just need to break it up. There are women out there who are incredible.”
WWE tested the waters of intergender wrestling earlier this year with Nia Jax and Dean Ambrose, but the proposed match did not end up happening. Perhaps one day we will be seeing an intergender match in WWE.
