There aren’t too many firsts in wrestling any more, but I’m pretty sure this one is.
In the middle of their intergender match, Joey Ryan paused to propose to his girlfriend Laura James – who also happened to be his opponent.
Three things I love about this video. (1) I’m a romantic, so I love original wedding proposals. (2) The ref sells his injury all the way through the proposal. (3) The finish. I won’t spoil it, but it’s lovely.
Congrats, Joey and Laura. Someone cue up Jim Johnston’s “Together.”
