The women's revolution is in full swing right now as the ladies of WWE recently made history by being the first female Superstars to wrestle in Saudi Arabia. The women of NXT have also recently been announced as the first to appear inside the WarGames structure, in a match that will take place on the eve of Survivor Series, with eight women given the chance to steal the show.
The women of WWE can only go so far when they are stuck in their lane, so it's time for the company to allow ladies to step up and fight the men. The likes of Shayna Baszler, Ronda Rousey, and even Nia Jax would be able to defeat several men on the current main roster, so why not give them the chance?
Intergender wrestling was once a huge part of WWE, with the likes of Trish Stratus, Lita, and even Maria Kanellis competing against men in the past, so here are a few reasons why it's time to bring back intergender wrestling.
#5 The women's division is no longer a challenge
Presently, many of the women in WWE have already proven that they have the kind of background that would suit wrestling males. Shayna Baszler has already dominated the women's division on NXT over the past year and now it's hard to see anyone being able to defeat The Queen of Spades for her NXT Women's Championship, which means she could be unbeatable on the main roster.
Baszler has an MMA background, which indicates she would be able to wrestle many of the men and could be seen as a heavy favorite against a number of them. Baszler isn't the only woman who could come out of the women's division and wrestle men since the likes of Ronda Rousey, Rhea Ripley, and Nia Jax could also make the step up.
