Is WWE Ready For A Woman To Win A Male Championship Again?


WWE is no longer in the envelope-pushing swing of the Attitude Era, but while the mainstream acceptance of the promotion may be at an all-time high, it only takes a few PR nightmares to put the company’s name back in the gutter.

So is WWE ready for a woman to win a man’s championship? Honestly, it’s hard to say.

There are plenty of reasons as to why they should, and plenty of reasons as to why they shouldn’t.

Ultimately, this will come down to the decision of one man, Vince McMahon, who is no stranger to intergender wrestling himself, having faced his daughter Stephanie at the 2003 No Mercy Pay Per View.

On a personal note, I can’t see it happening. WWE has spent years building up good publicity, a tall order considering some of the company’s murky past.

But for as much good PR as the company has, they are always a scandal or two away from the WWE brand being back in the mud, and intergender wrestling will no doubt be frowned upon for its connotations to male-on-female violence.

Simply put, WWE would need to do a lot of explaining before every match as to why an intergender match is acceptable.

With backlash from non-fans, and no doubt backlash from fans who don’t want to see a woman with a men’s title, this would in my view be a case of too much work for not enough payoff.

Do you think WWE should bring back intergender wrestling, and which woman would you like to see hold a men’s title?
