• The Sandman Says Women Main Eventing Shows Is Wrong, Chris Jericho Reacts
Impact Wrestling star Jordynne Grace noted on Twitter that ECW Legend The Sandman said to her that women main eventing wrestling shows is “wrong”.
Below is what she tweeted:
“Hey remember that time The Sandman came up to four women about to main event to tell us that women main eventing is “wrong” and “any male wrestler with any sort of experience would agree”?
Was this in 1998?
No, it was tonight. December 2019.”

This led to multiple wrestlers, including current AEW World Champion Chris Jericho, standing up for the female wrestlers:

Gross. I hope he stuck around to see the match and eat his words.

Most of the women wrestlers are pulling off more innovating & exciting stuff then the ever before.
Can’t tell you the amount of times I go watch a Stardom match & want to retire cos their matches are INSANE!
Let’s not interfere with progress, everyone keep killing it https://t.co/dbHTDSTZuG
