I have been a big wrestling fan since I was a child and I decided to follow some of my favorite female wrestlers on Instagram, I was strolling through Mickie James' insta and saw the highlights from the match. As soon as I saw her opponent, something told me to look deeper into them. And come to find out it is a TIM that she was fighting. He goes by the name Giselle Shaw and it trips me out that he is not fighting the men but the women.

Any thoughts on this?

I'm not a wrestling fan, but my husband is, so he tells me tidbits of news and history often. So feel free to ignore my comment if you want lol.

I am firmly against any male competing against women in physical sports. Since the WWE is scripted, they probably think that this is "safe". But the men still get hurt when a stunt goes wrong, so the women are still at risk.

I wonder if anything will change now that Stephanie McMahon is CEO.

(Unrelated, I would love to see Orange Cassidy perform live. AEW has been to arenas near me but I'm not comfortable going out to such a large crowd, because my kids are still little and I don't want to get them sick.)

WWE has never employed a TIM, they've only done an occasional joke match where a smaller man tries to cheat by entering the women's division and a woman beats him easily. I suspect they never will, I think they understand that dealing with a controversial political issue means half the audience stops watching.
