On Monday night Raw October 10th 2016 Sasha Banks teamed with Roman Reigns to take on Charlotte and Rusev in a Mixed tag team match. Pro-Wrestling isn’t real… In the match male and female stunt people did an excellently choreographed match/fight that resulted in the good guys winning. Pro-wrestling isn’t real… Why do I keep saying pro-wrestling isn’t real? I am saying it because the company and whoever handles creative is treating it too much like a sport instead of purely as an entertainment!
How many times in Movies, TV shows and Music videos have we seen a femme fatale beat up a man? Take a look at Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood Music video for example.
So given that pro-wrestlers are stunt people and not Mixed Martial artists, amateur wrestlers or any kind of combat athlete. Why do they continue to act like a sport? Here are the stupid rules to a Mixed tag team match. In the match men must fight men. However if a woman tags in then the female opposition must automatically be tagged in. If a woman strikes a man or a man strikes a woman theoretically it will result in Disqualification. Why do they do that?
Here are three reasons that WWE should stop with Mixed Tag Team matches. Instead have intergender matches, weather 1 on 1 or 2 on 2.
- The matches are incredibly entertaining. For example Gail Kim vs Tigre Uno in Impact Wrestling, Chyna vs Jeff Jarret and Jacqueline vs Chavo.
- It establishes heels. Nothing cements a heel like defeating someone of the opposite gender. For example Carlito vs Victoria.
- It breaks the gender barrier and enforces the fact that you must never underestimate your opponent despite gender, weight and size.
