Intergender wrestling in the WWE has been a hot topic this week, and one of the top female WWE stars have sounded off on it during a recent interview. Former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair spoke about it when conducting an interview with 105.3 The Fan.
It all started at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event once Nia Jax stole R-Truth’s #30 spot in the Men’s Royal Rumble Match. This led to Dolph Ziggler hitting a superkick to the Raw star followed up by Rey Mysterio with a drop kick and the 619 and Randy Orton connecting with an RKO.
Also, Jax hit Dean Ambrose with a forearm that sent him tumbling through the ropes as he was about to leave during this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw.
In the mind of Flair, she thinks that this interaction behind male and female talent should be limited under the WWE banner.
“When I’ve been asked the question, ‘Do you want to wrestle the guys?’ I say ‘no’ because it’s easy to wrestle a guy. It’s easy entertainment, It’s harder to tell a good story with all female talent. But I thought Nia looked like a star and she killed it. She added a lot to the Men’s Rumble. I don’t think they could have thrown anyone in there. A lot of it had to do with Nia’s presence and size. She could handle it. Maybe it will open the doors but I don’t think it should be happening every week. It has to be once a year or it takes away from the uniqueness of it.”
