I have to admit, people finally on Twitter and social media waking up to Joey's predator and hypocritical ways to where mainstream wrestling won't touch him is like a Christmas present to me this year.

Finally, people know how shit he is as a wrestler, a character, and as a person. :drose

Feels like AEW is already trying hard to be this progressive, all inclusive company and he's just bitter he wasn't signed. Doesn't matter one way or the other for me but at one point, I want Joey Ryan VS. Bobby Roode in a white briefs and baby oil match.

I don't agree with either one these arguments and honestly find it odd there's this huge debate over IG matches as if they're somehow new to the industry - I mean, one of my favourite matches from the Attitude Era was IG...

This question of IG matches really doesn't need to be a big deal. If TNT's rules don't accommodate them then Khan could just say that rather than throw shade on them as a whole. I get why Joey would take exception to Khan's stupid statement since they're his bread and butter but then his counter is equally as stupid. (Also he's probably the worst to ever happen to IG wrestling, there are so many people who would be a better choice to speak up for IG wrestling than fucking Joey Ryan)

These guys dragging some bullshit morality debate into it just irritates me, not everything needs to be taken so seriously - pro wrestling gimmick matches for one.

Out of curiosity what brought you more joy this week, most of the forum shitting on Seth or Joey Ryan?
Seth for sure :rusevyes

Joey sucks and most people know it. But seeing the majority of this place and reddit realise what a fucking goof :Cocky is, is one of the most cathartic things I've ever experienced

Lucha Underground IG matches worked because it was a fantasy world where you has dead man wrestling, time traveling space men, dragons, Lizard people, power gauntlet, immortality necklaces etc.

I will say for all the vitriol Ryan is getting - Young Bucks seem to like the guy and keep him part of BTE complete with dick flip garbage.

I think he took Tony's response too literally. Intergender might be in vogue on the indies right now, but I don't think it has any mass market appeal. Some people can get over that hump knowing wrestling is a work, but a lot of people just viscerally don't like the image of a man beating on a woman even in a worked environment. It's one of those things when I see it, my mind just goes to those really uncomfortable PSA's about domestic abuse, and I don't want to be confronted by depressing things like that when watching pro-wrestling.

Didn't AEW actually offer Joey a deal but he turned them down? At least there were reports of that, who knows if it was true though. Either way, Joey just sounds like an idiot here no denying that.

Not it's WWE who offered him a deal but AEW never tried to hire him.

IG matches make wrestling look fake as fuck, the moment you got a woman in there getting offense on a jacked guy whos much bigger than her and could break her like a twig its fucking ridiculous. Eli Drake refused to face Tessa Blanchard and thats one of the reasons he's not there at Impact anymore, cause its a disgrace to the business, look at how jacked and big Eli Drake is, could you imagine him in there selling and letting Tessa's skinny ass get offense in on him?

Theres nothing faker in pro wrestling than when a woman has a competitive back and forth match with a man.

Joey Ryan can take his dick gimmick and Schick where he molests women in the ring and fuck off, can't believe this clown is allowed to be a pro wrestler.

Yeah, LU really handled it well. I understand AEW's stance though, they are trying to be a successful mainstream company with sponsors and a network to answer to. IG wrestling is just too controversial

Still, the Nyla Rose thing is hilarious to me. If I didn't know better I'd think Khan was working everyone, saying no IG wrestling in AEW while having an IG match every time Nyla is in the ring.
