There ain't no party like a Penis Party, cause a Penis Party don't stop.
Well, unfortunately it did. Penis Party is now in the books, and Joey Ryan's first themed show was a success. An event that seemed unfathomable in prior decades shined during a crowded weekend around WrestleMania.
Of course, Ryan has his detractors. Many old school (and quite frankly, new school) names don't appreciate his style of work. However, as Ryan told Fightful.com recently, that's not an "across the board" type of thing. He got support in the form of a WWE Hall of Famer recently.
"I think everyone knows the detractors because the negative is always louder than the positive. I just did a show and "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan was on it. I didn't expect Hacksaw to have feelings one way or another about it. He went out of his way to say he knows how difficult it is to get something over and keep it over. He got over using a 2x4 and became what he's known for. It's a silly prop, but he owned it and became famous for it. He understands the struggle that a lot of wrestlers have to find something that establishes themselves, gets them over and helps them remain relevant. He understands the business part of of the penis stuff, rather than the bizarre or over the top, or cartoony, or the "killing the business." He said 'I got over carrying this thing around, so when something gets over you run with it,'" said Ryan.
Ryan had several appearances during WrestleMania weekend, from DDT Pro, to Impact Wrestling's United We Stand, to Joey Ryan's Penis Party. You can see results for all of those shows over in our results section, and can order the Impact and Penis Party shows on Fite.
