While I’m not a fan of intergender wrestling, and probably never will be. Mixed tag matches do present a different dynamic, and overall feel. Jocephus announced that his team members will be female, in the match against Crimson’s team. I’m not excited about this, but it did get me thinking. What would set the NWA apart, in the world of tag team wrestling? Mixed tag team wrestling is special attraction in the Anglosphere. Teams have one man, and one woman. Man tags in, the woman tags out. You get the idea.
Trios is becoming popular in the United States because of promotions like ROH, and AAA’s Lucha Underground. So, why not take advantage of the rising popularity? Both of these things are fresh, in the eyes of the English speaking public. The only promotion that, I’m aware of that does have a mixed tag team championship is Lucha Libre AAA. So, this could get international interest as well.
How would it work? One man, and two women in each team. The standard mixed tag rules apply male wrestlers have to tag out, or get disqualified. The NWA could also apply the two out of three falls rule like CMLL does. Kingdom of Jocephus versus Cody Rhodes, Brandi Rhodes, and Santana Garrett. Think about it. If you support this idea, you should try to get Mr. Lagana to read this.
