Seth Rollins has spoken about the possibility of having frequent intergender matches in WWE, and it’s fair to say he doesn’t see it happening time soon.
Rollins recently took part in a mixed-gender tag match with Becky Lynch, taking on Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin at Extreme Rules, but that’s about as close to an intergender match as we’re going to get, says Rollins.
Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, he said:
“There are places for it. But this full on independent style women vs men match where the women are chokeslamming the men? Our business is based in realism a little bit, so let’s do that as best we can.
“I think lets live in a reality a little bit here, I am not saying women aren’t as good as men because that is not the case. But there is a reason when you go to the Olympics there are men’s and women’s [sports], there is a reason you have mens and womens soccer, mens and womens basketball.
“It is not they aren’t as talented, or they are not as good as athletes, but you just need to break it up. There are women out there who are incredible. Whether we are going to have full on intergender matches, we may get there – but it is going to take some doing.”
WWE advertised an intergender match between Dean Ambrose and Nia Jax earlier this year, but the match was scrapped before it took place.
