Charlotte Flair has her hands full with Becky Lynch at WWE Fastlane. However, there is a faction of the audience who would much rather see intergender matches on WWE’s card instead.
While speaking at SXSW 2019, Charlotte Flair was asked about intergender wrestling. She said that it brings a “cheap reaction,” but in the end, she has no interest in wrestling men.
“I could care less about wrestling men. Because I think that it’s harder to tell a story when it’s female talent vs. female talent. Yeah, you can get a cheap reaction wrestling a guy, ‘Oh, I slapped him’ or he hits me, but that’s not hard. That’s not entertaining. That’s an easy reaction versus having to tell a good story.”
This is a very interesting stance for Charlotte Flair to take. Perhaps WWE will drift closer to having intergender wrestling on the card, but in the meantime it looks like they will keep with their current formula.
WWE has a lot of things they need to consider when making a decision like this in regards to what their sponsors will think. If the fans demand it, then they might soften their stance, but there is a reason why WWE promoted a match between Dean Ambrose vs Nia Jax only to cancel is a very short time later.
