Intergender wrestling is a hot button issue in today’s pro wrestling landscape. It looks like the idea is gaining more acceptance, but Eli Drake is not interested.
Drake sent out a message saying that he has a ton of respect for both Impact Wrestling and Tessa Blanchard, but he will not be wrestling her in a one-on-one match.
You couldn’t have hit the nail more directly on the head.
I have amazing respect for @IMPACTWRESTLING and @Tess_Blanchard and can see that she is likely the greatest female talent in wrestling today.
Although that said, I will not participate in a one on one intergender match.
Impact Wrestling had previously announced Eli Drake vs Tessa Blanchard at United We Stand. It looks like they might have to work on something else.
