Joey Ryan Praises Mia Khalifa For Owning Up To Her Comments On Wrestling, Calls Her A Sweetheart

Joey Ryan and Mia Khalifa are two people who were probably destined to work together.

In December 2017, former pornstar Mia Khalifa called professional wrestling "embarrassing" and "not a real sport." She said of Ronda Rousey's transition to pro wrestling, "This is where her career will go to die."

One month later at Sabotage Wrestling's War of the Genders 2, Khalifa was confronted by penisstar Joey Ryan over her comments. While Khalifa did not take a penis plex, she was treated to Ryan's infamous blow pop. You can view the entire segment in the video above.

Speaking on a media call (via Sportskeeda), Ryan discussed what it was like working with Khalifa.

"She's really nice. She's really sweet. She made those comments about professional wrestling and she didn't expect the backlash that she got because a lot of people don't realize how big the professional wrestling fanbase is and how it's not really an underground thing. It's pretty mainstream. Once she saw the reaction to it, she took responsibility for her own comments. She actually went to a wrestling school and learned a little bit of wrestling from Thunder Rosa, who's Kobra Moon on Lucha Underground. She got in the ring a little bit and Sabotage Wrestling was in contact with her and wanted her to do a bit interrupting me in the ring."

Ryan continued, "It was really fun. She's a sweetheart and she owned up to her comments about professional wrestling. She learned about it herself which is great because some people just get stubborn with their ideas. But she was open to learning about it once she saw the backlash she got for making those comments."

Joey Ryan is set to host his first-ever Penis Party on Apr. 5 in New York. He will also be competing in an intergender match against Tessa Blanchard at IMPACT United We Stand. Ryan recently spoke to Fightful about a variety of subjects. You can listen to the full interview here.
