Faye Jackson Doesn't Want To Travel Backwards To ROH, Says Intergender Wrestling Is Uplifting

Faye Jackson doesn't sound interested in returning to ROH.

Faye Jackson hasn't been around pro wrestling for long, but she's already well-traveled, having wrestled for promotions such as wXw, GCW, AIW, and ROH. In fact, Jackson was trained at the ROH Dojo and competed in the ROH Women of Honor event in 2016 in just her fourth professional match. Despite ROH giving her a start in wrestling, Jackson is looking to move forward.

“Women of Honor gave me my first opportunity into wrestling and I will be forever be grateful for that. As far as going back to the company, I will never say never. But I will also say I don’t like traveling backwards. Only onward and upward," Jackson told Andrew Thompson of POST Wrestling.

Jackson last wrestled for ROH in October 2017.

While Jackson has shared the ring with top women such as Britt Baker, Toni Storm, Scarlett Bordeaux, and Jodynne Grace; She finds it just as empowering to be in the ring with the men.

“I love it!" she expressed when asked about intergender wrestling. “For me, I love it because I feel like I have more to prove with men. I’m not wrestling girls that are the same size and definitely not the same weight as me. Men give me a reason to give all my strength and somewhat agility. I do understand why people don’t like intergender wrestling. Men that were raised right know not to put their hands on a woman. The only argument I would give to intergender wrestling is this: We are athletes and we are entertainers. Women can be just as powerful and sometimes more powerful than men. If I would have waited on another woman to join my school when I first started training in order to finally learn pro wrestling, I would have been waiting for quite a long time,” Jackson said. “It’s uplifting for women to share a ring with men because it proves to us that we can be just as powerful and dominating.”

Jackson recently teamed with Mike Schwarz to defeat Amale & Levaniel in a mixed tag team bout at wXw World Tag Team Festival night one. You can view results from wXw World Tag Team Festival night one by clicking here.
