Triple H and Charlotte Flair Comment On Intergender Matches in WWE AT SXSW

Mar 10, 2019 - by Steve Gerweck

Triple H was asked by a fan about when inter-gender matches would happen in WWE after they planted the seeds with Nia Jax in the men’s Royal Rumble this year.

He responded with:

“So, this is one of the things that is baffling to me,” Triple H said. “Why does inter-gender need to happen? Why? Because the women aren’t good enough to have their own thing going on and to compete against themselves, and dominate, and win, and main event, and put on better performances — they need a guy to do that?”

The fan responded that he wants to see the “first female World Wrestling champ,” and after Triple H responded with, “You’ve already seen it happen,” the fan clarified that he didn’t mean the Divas or women’s wrestling, but the overall champion, to which Triple H said, “So you feel like, in order for them to prove themselves, they need to do that against a guy?” The fan responded that if he wanted the women to “take a step up” and Triple H jumped in and asked, “Why is that a step up? Why is that a step up? To do it against a guy is a step up? So by definition, they are a step down?”

The fan responded that women aren’t on the Mount Rushmore of wrestling and to get on there, women need to fight men. The crowd found that comment to be a bit sexist and Triple H asked if anybody else wanted to take that one.
Charlotte Flair jumped in with her thoughts.

“Coming from a female talent, I have no — I could care less about wrestling men. Because I think that it’s harder to tell a story when it’s female talent vs. female talent.

Yeah, you can get a cheap reaction wrestling a guy, ‘Oh, I slapped him’ or he hits me, but that’s not hard. That’s not entertaining. That’s an easy reaction. Versus having to tell a good story.”

Stephanie McMahon then said let’s move on to the next question.

Triple H also took a question on WWE having “well funded competition” for the first time awhile.
