Former WWE Producer Calls For An End To Intergender Matches

Former WWE producer Lance Storm wants to see an end to intergender matches.

He cites the bouts need to stop in response to the recent #SpeakingOut movement on social media, where male and female workers spoke out about alleged abuse they hae endured.

“I see some discussion on inter gender wrestling matches again. In light of #SpeakingOut I think these matches have to stop. I’ve heard from so many women who were uncomfortable doing these but felt obligated to to get booked because these matches were accepted ‘norms’,” Storm tweeted this morning.

Storm understands a worker could get heat for canceling an intergender match.

“For every inter gender match that happens in a top company with professional conduct there are dozens of women who agree to be booked in a Women’s on a multi show loop that gets there and finds out the other woman didn’t show up (maybe was never booked) and now she has to Agree to do intergender matches and be the only women on the tour or lose all the booking and risk heat from canceling. There is then pressure to share a room because everyone else is doubling up. THIS HAPPENS,” Storm added.

ROH wrestler Session Moth Martina had a different perspective.

“I think we should be allowed the choice to have an intergender match if we want to. Hopefully in a safe environment where no woman or man will feel uncomfortable in that situation again,” she tweeted in reply.

Storm responded, “Explain to me how to make that happen at the Indy level, and I’m with you.”
