Joey Ryan was recently interviewed by “Vulture Hound”. During the interview, he discussed why equality in wrestling is so important. Here are the highlights:
On Why Equality In Wrestling Is Important:
I mean it’s definitely something I’ve lived by my whole life, whether it’s in wrestling or in any other part of the world. Not only in inter-gender but sexuality or race, I try to treat everyone as equals and I try to promote everyone as equals. The more I got into wrestling, I noticed a lot of the promotions didn’t treat female wrestlers equally and a lot of them got misused or mishandled. Especially seeing it with Candice [LeRae], seeing her struggles, it really opened my eyes on stuff that needed to be said in wrestling.
On Bar Wrestling:
In the industry, the more is the better. With Bar Wrestling, I wanted to create an environment where you don’t have to necessarily come to every show and you don’t have to follow the storylines. You can just come, relax and have a good time. The show starts, it ends and usually there’s no carry over to the next one. That was important to me because I do a lot of shows where there are a lot of storylines and a lot of characters. In the indies, there’s no TV, you can’t follow it, you can’t watch or DVR it. So I just wanted to create a show where the show begins and ends that same night.
