Jeff Jarrett Talks Intergender Match Against Chyna

Jeff Jarrett says intergender matches should stay rare in WWE. 

In 1999, Jeff Jarrett wrestled Chyna on a few occasions including a couple Intercontinental Championship matches. At the No Mercy pay-per-view that year, Chyna became Intercontinental Champion after defeating Jarrett. That match was one of the last intergender matches in WWE for a long time before James Ellsworth faced Becky Lynch on Smackdown last year.

In an interview with Sportskeeda, Jarrett said his match with Chyna was special and he believes intergender wrestling matches need to be built to correctly. 

"I think this is a very very specific case to case basis because I don't think it's fair if it was the worlds best female basketball player against Lebron James, that's really not competitive. At the time of me and Chyna, Chyna was build so strong that the timing was right. Intergender matches on a consistent basis...I believe the specialty of that would diminish, but on occasion I think it's a good opportunity," said Jarrett. 

In the rest of the interview, Jarrett talked about being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame and Ronda Rousey being a "once in a lifetime" athlete for WWE to acquire.
