Other SportsWWE Intergender Matches: Yay or Nay? by Staff Post February 17, 2016 This topic in the wrestling business has been a controversial one, with fans and wrestlers firmly planted on different sides of the argument.Is it too brutal to see a female brawl with a male wrestler?Is it seen as a joke?Is it mid card attraction to bring attention to the promotion?Is it a ploy just get the male wrestler ‘cheap heat’?I’ve heard it all. Fans may not all agree with the place that these matches hold in the business but one thing is for sure, this style of wrestling is becoming quite popular.The history of Intergender matches can be traced back to the late 1970s, early 80s when comedian Andy Kaufman would stage matches. Of course, this was just meant for laughs and no one took it seriously. Fast forward to the late 90s early 2000s, where the wrestling business was thriving at an all time high. The legitimate wrestling skills of women like Chyna, Luna Vachon, Jazz and Lita helped fans to get comfortable with seeing Intergender matches, without looking at the competitors gender the entire match and just enjoy the skills of both athletes in the ring.In this generation, it has become even more of a norm to see an intergender match. The independent scene in the past few years has received a great response for booking these matches. In my opinion, promotions like AIW and Lucha Underground has been doing the best job at showing the legitimacy of these matches. Granted, I have seen horrible intergender matches in my day, but there are many that stand out, that I would like to put the spotlight on.1.
