Mandy Rose gives her thoughts on intergender wrestling in WWE.
Intergender wrestling has become a hot topic in WWE ever since Nia Jax entered the men's Royal Rumble and squared off with Mustafa Ali, Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton. The following night on Raw, Jax got into it with Dean Ambrose. A bout between Jax and Ambrose was advertised for a Feb. 22 live event, but WWE called the ad incorrect and stated the match would not be taking place.
Speaking to the New York Post, Mandy Rose gave her thoughts on intergender wrestling in WWE.
“I think it’s a great time for it,” said Mandy. “Women are breaking down those barriers and they’re becoming, you know, they’re main-eventing and it’s just been an amazing time for women in general in sports. I feel like, yeah, why not do inter-gender matches? It brings entertainment. It brings a lot of different viewers and demographics and all that, so why not do it?”
While Jax entering the men's Royal Rumble was a rare time when male and female WWE superstars got physical, it's not out of the ordinary for male and female superstars to interact in the ring. In December, WWE finished the second season of Mixed Match Challenge, which teams male and female superstars with one another in a tournament format. Mandy competed in the first season of MMC, teaming with Goldust for the competition.
