Intergender matches are rarely seen in WWE today. The last one, after a long time, was between Randy Orton and Alexa Bliss at Fastlane. But it barely involved any physical interaction between the superstars.

Throughout WWE history, we've seen intergender matches where men and women superstars clashed in the ring. Top superstars in both divisions took to the WWE ring to settle their differences.

Among the most memorable intergender matches in WWE history is the one between Chyna and Chris Jericho at Survivor Series 1999 for the Intercontinental Championship, where The Ninth Wonder of the World emerged victorious.

Also, WWE fans will never forget "The Battle of the Sexes" at Armageddon 2003 between Trish Stratus & Lita and Chris Jericho & Christian. The two ladies fought bravely despite losing.

Today, WWE fans might want to witness more intergender matches between current superstars. Such matches would be even more eye-catching now that WWE women play a leading role in the company.

Here are five intergender matches we want to see in WWE.

#5. WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns Vs. Sasha Banks

Roman Reigns is the current WWE Universal Champion while Sasha Banks is the former SmackDown Women's Champion. They both compete on the blue brand.

The two WWE superstars have competed before in the same ring as partners. They took on Rusev and Charlotte Flair in a mixed tag team match on RAW almost five years ago. Their in-ring chemistry led them to victory that night.

When Reigns teamed up with Banks, they were both champions. The Tribal Chief was The United States Champion while Banks was The RAW Women's Champion.

In an interview with GQ Magazine, The Boss challenged The Big Dog to a match to prove that she is the number one in the company.

"I would love a singles match against Roman Reigns. Just to show that I really am the number one in the company," Sasha Banks declared.

#4. Braun Strowman Vs. WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Nia Jax

Braun Strowman is one of the largest WWE Superstars today. Standing at 6 ft 8 and 385 lb, he's a force feared by many.

Likewise, Nia Jax is also one of the largest superstars in the women's division. The powerhouse stands at 6 ft 1 and 272 lb. She too is one feared among her peers.

Strowman and Jax seem to have more in common than just being the largest and arguably the most feared in their respective divisions.

The two WWE Superstars have won a major title once in their careers, both at WrestleMania. Jax was crowned RAW Women's Champion at WrestleMania 34 after defeating Alexa Bliss. Strowman became the Universal Champion at WrestleMania 36 by defeating Goldberg. Both also have two tag team titles to their names.

A clash between The Irresistible Force and the Monster Among Men would be one to capture the eye of the WWE Universe. Jax has already proved she does not mind mixing it up with the boys in the ring when she participated in the men's Royal Rumble match in 2019.

Whom would you bet on in this clash of powerhouses?

#3. WWE Superstars Becky Lynch Vs. John Cena

Former WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch has been away from the ring ever since she announced her pregnancy following the Money in the Bank pay-per-view last year, and dropped her belt to Asuka.

John Cena, too, has been absent from WWE since his appearance in a cinematic match against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36. However, a match between him and Lynch upon their return would be something that could make the WWE Universe lick its lips.

The two have crossed paths before on SmackDown. Lynch took to the ring to confront a returning Cena in 2019. While Cena waited in the ring for "some man" to interrupt him and give him a reason for being on the blue brand, as he said, he got The Man. Lynch cut a promo on the 16-time World Champion.

"How does it feel that you were expecting a man to come out here, what you weren't expecting was The Man? Now, here you say you feel like you are back where you belong. Well, it's not that simple anymore because, in 2019, I wasn't just aiming to overtake charlotte on the posters and billboards, I was aiming for you, too, John. You see you have been on every single WWE marquee for the last 16 years, you personify what this company is... mmm... check that... was. It is time for someone new to step up, step in, and fill your shoes and there is only one person for that job and I think these people would agree with me that that person is me."

Before Cena replies, the two were interrupted by Zelina Vega and Andrade. It led to a mixed tag team match between Cena & Lynch and Andrade & Vega. The match witnessed some heat between Cena and Lynch. She threw Cena out of the ring by the end of the match before forcing Vega to submit. She then stood face to face with the WWE legend, refused to shake his hand, and imitated his famous You Can't See Me gesture.

Do you think The Man can take on Super Cena?

#2. Charlotte Flair Vs. WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is arguably the best superstar in WWE history. His daughter, Charlotte, is just fighting for the same status in the women's division. Flair is a 16-time World Champion while his daughter is now a 13-time Women's Champion.

Charlotte has been following in her father's footsteps while the latter helped her during different stages in her career. However, the two have had their differences on several occasions.

The latest clash between Ric and Charlotte came in the weeks before the Elimination Chamber when Flair Senior helped Lacey Evans defeat his daughter. Charlotte confronted her father and asked him to go home. He eventually did, after Evans announced her pregnancy and took a leave from WWE.

Throughout the years, Ric has been humiliated and even slapped across the face by his daughter in WWE. These years of tension could make for a good storyline that would see Flair return to the ring to take on his daughter, with the winner declaring him or herself the best of the Flairs.

#1. Dolph Ziggler Vs. Mandy Rose on WWE

The storyline between WWE SmackDown Tag Team Champion Dolph Ziggler and Mandy Rose gained a lot of attention last year. Ziggler and Sonya Deville conspired to drift Rose away from Otis and date Ziggler. Although they succeeded for some time, Rose discovered their plan, which led to a Rose costing Ziggler his match against Otis at WrestleMania 36.

The storyline continued after WrestleMania but focused on the relationship between Rose and her best friend, Deville. The two ladies clashed on SmackDown in a singles match and in a mixed-tag team match that involved Otis and Ziggler. It all came to an end when Rose defeated Deville at SummerSlam in a "Loser Leaves WWE" Match. Rose later moved to Monday Night RAW.


The end of the storyline saw Rose get her revenge from her best friend, but not from the man who played her. A match between the Golden Goddess and The Showoff would be a good chance for her to do so.
