Second, as stated above, women can - and have - come out on top over men. Decisively, at that. And third: I know for a fact that there are some ladies out there that could stomp men flat any given day of any given week (like Kharma
I believe that intergender wrestling shouldn't be a flash-in-the-pan gimmick match; it should be more mainstream. I see it as a huge potential draw - because I don't know of any other physical sport that allows men to directly compete against women. I understand the risks some people see in it: not as much as women getting hurt as much as people worry that it sends a negative message... but I also believe that this sends an equally positive message: women can compete, survive, and thrive - not just in wrestling, but in any and all aspects of life. And why not? Last time I checked, men and women are human. Equals. They don't just deserve a chance to prove that... They have that chance, because frankly I fail to see what makes most men believe that it is their opportunity to give.
Damn, I'm long-winded...
