An intergender match between Eli Drake and Tessa Blanchard has been booked for Impact’s WrestleMania weekend show, United We Stand, on April 4 in Rahway, NJ. The show will also air on fite.tv.
On Twitter, Eli Drake said that he won’t participate in the match, but it’s probably part of a storyline since he has wrestled women on indie shows recently.
You couldn’t have hit the nail more directly on the head.
Although that said, I will not participate in a one on one intergender match. https://t.co/Hv5MydU8P6
