If it made sense in the storyline between two women for a B&B match then sure (highly unlikely) - otherwise not interested, it won't achieve anything other than get a few thirsty basement dwellers tuning in for one show and degrade the entire women's division in the process.

They've just signed Scarlett Bordeaux, the only point to Scarlett, the only real contribution she makes is that she is ABSURDLY gorgeous.

So why not. Scarlett v Mandy in a Bra and Panties match would be fantastic.

I am of the opinion that the Attitude Era had a better womens division than what we currently have. There was variety, and wider appeal. You had your T&A like your Sable's, Torrie, Stacy, etc. you had your serious female wrestlers like Jazz, Ivory, etc and you had those who could blend both sides of the coin in Lita, Trish, etc.

Thesedays its this weird sort of half assed attempt to make them all appear strictly like serious pro wrestlers, even when someone like Charlotte is walking around with every single plastic surgery procedure known to man performed on her and the fakest looking tit job of all time.They still allow the sexy stuff, but pretend its not there.

Yes.

The only thing is that it should make sense.

1) Either it's a storyline in which such match fits. And it's not that difficult. Mandy Rose\Alexa\any hot diva shaming someone who is either not good looking or uptight.

2) As soon as women involved can say no. I hated when Impact fired Eli Drake for refusing to wrestle Tessa. I think everyone and anyone should be able to refuse work a match or fued if they are not comfortable. Sure dont abuse it or otherwise company will rightfully fire you, but there should be a healthy way of refusing to work something that you hate.

The porn argument is straight up gay. What's wrong with throwing in some sexy ladies? Last time I checked Mandy Rose and Alexa Bliss haven't done porn. I'd be down for a bra and panties match.

Do all you "go watch porn" guys cover your eyes during cheer leaders routines too?
Lol what a dweeb... theres a difference between women wrestling and ladies doing bra and panties matches. Women wrestling is actually a part of the show because theyre “competitors”, the latter is exclusively used to sexualize them which is why people say go watch porn if thats what you want.

No matter how you try to spin it, theres nothing cool about objectifying the women on the roster like that. Fuck the good old days where guys like you watched wrestling with a bottle of lotion within arms reach

I'm a red blooded male, I like seeing sexy women. Just because I'm enjoying sexy women doesn't mean I'm jerking off to them. I like seeing cheerleaders when I attend sporting events, so do most of all the other straight men there. Do we all whip it out and start beating it? Is that why you're scared to see sexy women? You can't control yourself?

And big newsflash, if you don't think the women are sexualized already, you're fucking clueless. Throwing Lana and Many Rose in a bra and panties match isn't going to "set women's wrestling back" when you still have your Becky Lynchs and Charlotte (plastic everything) Flairs.

It would just be a fun little spectacle that most men who aren't on a diet of soy milk and gluten free quiche, would enjoy.

It's hard to imagine who on the roster would be willing to go along with with it, what is in it for them? Sexual degradation just for some TV time? Being officially recognized as a pretender good for nothing more than eye candy within what is now a pretty respected division? It's a character demotion for every woman on the roster and they're not exactly going to be championed as heroines for bringing it back, they'd draw far more criticism than praise as symbols of regression.

Ultimately if they actually changed the rating to make them possible then surely bringing back blood would be a much higher priority on fan's wish lists, no?

The UFC has serious female fighters and they also have sexy ring girls in bikinis between rounds. Some of the ring girls like Arianny Celeste or Brittany Palmer are more popular than a lot of the fighters. Nobody seems to have a problem with it.

I don’t see why people would think that model wouldn’t work in the WWE as well. They cater to similar audiences. Despite what the SJW’s would like you to believe, sex still sells. And beautiful women still enjoy showing off and feeling attractive, if you don’t believe that, go check out Instagram.

To me there’s room for both. You can have your Charlotte’s, Sasha’s & Becky’s of the world completing strictly as wrestlers and you could have people like Alexa, Mandy & Scarlett who are better suited for divas matches that focus on their strengths, which is their appearance.

Considering most of the women’s roster post much more revealing content voluntarily on their Instagram accounts for free, I highly doubt they’d be opposed to it in a scenario where they get paid.

Two things

What if Alexa Bliss and other women don’t just want to do that they like wrestling and entertaining not stripping for your pressure.

Why would WWE or AEW do it when stuff like that doesn’t help with pr or sponsorship deals in this day and age of television whether you like it or not.

Good point but the difference is the separation from talent and eye candy. They're not having their fighters do bikini matches. And even if WWE hired Nitro girls like WCW had ans then used them in a sex object type role It's just bad pr waiting to happen.

1.) If they don’t want to do it, then don’t do it. I’m not advocating forcing anyone to be a diva, I’m saying it should be an option. Girls like Mandy Rose or Scarlett Boudreaux are never going to be able to get over on their wrestling abilities, at least it’s highly unlikely.

You don’t think they’d jump at the chance to get over for their physical appearance instead. Even the serious women’s wrestlers like Sasha & Charlotte post all kinds of revealing content on their Instagram accounts. Nobodies forcing them to do it. Or are they wrong for “objectifying” themselves.

2.) Again, having Ocotgon Girls isn’t hurting UFC’s sponsorship deals. They got a big tv deal with ESPN who is owned by f’n Disney. The only people that have a problem with sex is the twitter cancel mob, the rest of the world is fine with it.

With the ratings being what they are, WWE should be open to anything and everything that may get people to watch.

Why though? It wouldn't really enhance the product, there are far too many places now for titillation, and most of the matches aren't much better than half the garbage matches now.

I actually think the women's talent has taken a major step back the past 10-15 years. I don't even think most of the Divas today could pull off sex appeal.

I dont think Bra & panties matches is the way to go simply because the talent level is at an all time high. That being said, having women wear gear thats more...revealing I dont think is out of the question. You dont think if Bayley comes out wearing shorts like Alexa or Toni that a few more people wont pay a little more attention to her? You dont think if Alexa or Charlotte's boobs got a little more revealing that a few more eyebrows wont be raised? That a few more clicks wont be made on websites? You can be edgy without being trashy.


Bayley has to be the first woman in wrestling history to wear in ring gear that doesnt accentuate her curves.

For what we can practically see everything we want of every divas body anyway. Only thing it would do is serve as a way of turning divas into sex symbols
Women's wrestling has come a long way, let's not go backwards.
That's what Porn is for.
Pornhub is that way ->
You could just look up wrestling porn and find much better results than any Bra & Panties match in the WWE.
There's better porn out on the internet.
Unnecessary, go watch porn if you're that desperate.
The "go watch porn" argument is dusted off frequently because it's incredibly intellectually lazy and simplistic.

By that rationale, sex appeal has absolutely no place in any entertainment medium that isn't porn.

Cheerleaders in sports? Fuck it, because porn.
A stupid show like Baywatch, one of the most popular shows of all time? Fuck it, because porn.
Sex (or sexually suggestive) scenes in movies or TV shows? Fuck it, because porn.
Hooters girls? Fuck it, because porn.
Maxim and similar magazines, both paper and online? Fuck it, because porn.

Now, I'm not necessarily arguing that all or any of these things are inherently good, and I'm not necessarily saying WWE should go in that direction, but to say that they shouldn't exist because of the proliferation of online porn simply doesn't make sense and doesn't align with consumer preferences. Sex sells, and if WWE announced a bra & panties match between any two of their top 10 most attractive performers, I guarantee it would be a ratings bonanza, albeit likely a fleeting one.

Ultimately, it's about WWE's target demographics and how desperate they are to pop ratings and attention. No matter whether you love or hate modern women's wrestling in WWE, the numbers prove that it has a relatively low ceiling vis a vis appeal to casual viewers. That said, it's also worth considering whether the short-term benefits of having the hot women strut around in thongs would work long-term. Like, the kind of fan who would tune in for tits & ass...is that person sticking around the following week when there isn't another match like that? It's possible, but it feels unlikely.

So, in short, I'm not sure those kinds of matches would be productive, and they clearly don't align with either WWE's corporate identity or the limp-wristed, social-justice-driven society we get to enjoy in 2019.

But would I enjoy 'em? Fuck yeah, and my lady would watch 'em with me.

Well it's not coming back... There's zero reason to bring them back, they didn't draw in 2002 and they won't draw in 2019. That's not why people watch wrestling..

That's painting with a very broad brush and overlooks a variety of strong points in my previous post. Would a very occasional bra & panties match somehow bring WWE to the promised land? Of course not. Could they pop a rating if used sparingly? Absolutely. To broadly state that "that's not why people watch wrestling" can't be supported by facts, simply because it's been so long since WWE presented a segment like that. There's simply no way of knowing whether it would draw an audience, so to simply dismiss it out of hand is both foolish and not in line with the facts.
