Charlotte thinks intergender wrestling in WWE should be ‘once every year, a novelty’

During an interview with Shan & RJ on 105.3 The Fan, Charlotte had this to say about intergender wrestling in WWE (via Wrestling Inc):

“So at first when I was asked that question, ‘Do you want to wrestle the guys?’ I’m like, no, because I just think it’s harder storytelling-wise. I mean, it’s easy to wrestle a guy. It’s easy entertainment, it’s an easy — it’s whatever. It’s harder to tell a good story when you’re wrestling all female talent. But I thought Nia looked like a star and killed it on Sunday, and she added a lot to the men’s Rumble. She really did.

”Now I don’t think they could have just thrown anyone in there. I think a lot of it was Nia’s presence, her size. She could handle it. So now I don’t know, maybe it will open the doors, but I don’t think it’s something that should be every week. I think it’s something that has to be once every year, a novelty. Or else it takes away from the special uniqueness of it. I don’t want to see that every week. I’m sorry, I don’t.”

This comes after Nia Jax stole R-Truth’s spot in the men’s Royal Rumble and actually managed to make a splash. As Charlotte said, she “killed it” and “looked like a star.” At the very least, she looked like she belonged.

The very next night on Raw, WWE teased Jax mixing it up with Dean Ambrose. It’s hard to tell if this is a change in direction and signals the promotion being willing to actually book intergender matches or if it was a one time thing to drive interest. Charlotte believes it should only happen on rare occasions.
