For the past several years, the professional wrestling world has been split on their opinions of intergender wrestling. Intergender wrestling is heavily featured in a lot of indy promotions around the world. As for WWE, they tend to stay away from such things, especially in today’s climate. However, there has been some argument that, due to WWE’s push of the Women’s Revolution, women should be allowed to compete against the men.
WWE COO Triple H was recently interviewed by SBS reporter Manny Tsigas to promote the WWE Super Show-Down in Melbourne, Australia. “The Game” was asked for his thoughts on Intergender wrestling and if fans could expect to see it in WWE. It doesn’t seem likely, as Triple H says it’s simply used for “shock value”:
“There’s just a shock moment and a spectacle to that. Women, female athletes, our women the WWE female Superstars don’t need a man to make them successful in the ring. They don’t need a man to step in the ring with them to make them have a spectacular match. Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch will probably walk into “The G” on Saturday and steal the night. Ronda Rousey will be one of the biggest superstars in that arena on Saturday. They don’t need a man to make them successful. They don’t need a man to be in the ring with them.
“They need each other, the opportunity, the platform, and to be set free to do what they do. When we do that they rise to the occasion. They have stolen the show, they have had the main event, they will have their own pay-per-view…They don’t need [intergender wrestling]. It’s just shock value. You don’t need it. When it’s done right, I do believe there is an exciting moment when it can happen, but it doesn’t need to be the standard.”
