Let’s bring lingerie matches back but only if the men get to compete too. Oh, and bring back mud wrestling matches. Actually, I could see WWE today doing the mud wrestling match for shits & giggles. HHH knows all about this match.

I wouldn´t be against it. Of course, it shouldn´t happen just because Bra n´ panties, but a storyline could perhaps result in that type of match... It could even be a story involving 2 not so talented females, a match like that is never gonna be 5* anyway.

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.
As expected you just came with more shit that made you sound like a dweeb. Comparing female wrestlers to cheerleaders doesnt make sense. Women in the WWE are more like actual players on a sports team than cheerleaders. Hot blooded male? What the fuck does that even mean... i just dont see the point of sexualizing wrestlers for no reason. I watch wrestling for wrestling, not nip slips.

And what the hell is up with you and soy?

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..
How about Sable segments during the Monday Night Wars? Bischoff stated many times that people were tuning specifically during Sable’s segments. She did evening gown matches with Luna that were a draw.

You don’t think they’d have similar results with Scarlett Boudreaux filing that role?

I would guess a very small portion of the male viewiership is watching womens wrestling for the actual wrestling.

But then again the male 18-35 demo is the lowest in history at the moment.

I would say no. Bra and Panties matches are pointless and only ever served as a gimmick for extremely hot female wrestlers to show of their bodies because that was all they were good for really. The likes of Sable, Torrie Wilson, Stacey Keibler etc come to mind. Today's female wrestlers are more about the wrestling aspects of things and don't seem geared towards that type of thing.

I can't imagine a lot of females in WWE wanting to do it either. Maybe someone like Scarlett Bordeaux would do it, but Becky, Charlotte, Bayley, Sasha Banks? Not a chance.

No. It would be awkward and cringe worthy. We have access to an infinite amount of porn now we don't need to get out rocks off to female wrestlers in their underwear.

They might do it in 2020, if it were Nia Jax vs. a man.

Most of the women already wrestle in pretty much bra and panties anyway

No.

What the hell is the point of it? It's not gonna do anything for WWE except give them headaches because you know there is going to be fucking outrage if they pull that shit. That's also gonna be a huge step back for the women given everything they've done with them for the past few years.

This is a show about wrestling. Not tits and ass. Let's see some wrestling and look for the smut somewhere else.

We won't get it back because the hardcore wrestling nerds will find it offensive (beta males) and the mainstream casuals will complain too because little Timmy had an erection while watching fake wrestling.

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. 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.

Bullshit

Sex still sells in this era so they should atleast consider it. And it's not like they are completely naked. Most of the men wear less.

As with a great many things in life, I would suppose it would depend on the context and presentation.

As much as I love seeing women in panties, I think we don't need to go back to this. Of course, all of the teenage virgins living with mum would be thrilled, but those of us who have been with real women can live without seeing it. This is wrestling, not Playboy. If you want to see naked women, look at porn. Just my two cents.

The 'go watch porn' argument is so lazy. It's the act of stripping each other and anticipating which girl you're going to see in their underwear that is what's entertaining. It's a brief 10 minute sexy distraction in a 3 hour show that desperately needs some sex appeal. It would pop ratings and everyone knows it. The negative publicity is only from left wing outlets which cry about everything to the point where people are crying out for stuff like this, the millions of casuals that left want to see some attitude and sex back in wrestling.

If it was up to me I would create a Bra and Panties division of 7 hot as fuck women that are amazing at talking and cat fighting and have the belt defended once a month.

There you go everyone's happy, marks have their women's wrestling and casuals have their sex appeal.

Don't tell me that a show broadcast late at night can't have women in bikinis but I turn over the channel and some woman is getting kidnapped, raped and murdered? They are both fictional TV shows, why is wrestling held to a standard that no other show at that timeframe is held to? And people wonder why the ratings have plummeted since they stopped doing this sort of thing.
