I guess she isn’t a fan. Wrestling is in a weird place when it comes to athletics. While it is certainly an athletic field, it is not exactly the same as traditional sports. The endings to wrestling matches are determined in advance and that is something that a lot of people are not going to like. It seems to be the case with a more mainstream athlete who appeared on a recent wrestling show.
One of the bigger stories taking place in AEW at the moment is the rivalry between Dan Lambert and the American Top Team mixed martial arts fighters and the Inner Circle. Several mixed martial artists have appeared in the angle, including Kayla Harrison. However, in an interview with Jim Varsallone, Harrison has said that she will not be back, saying that fighters who keep going back to wrestling are “yahoos” and described wrestling as “so stupid” and “so silly”. Harrison made one appearance in the angle and did not return.
That’s a rather hard no. Check out how the angle has gone so far:
Opinion: This is the kind of thing that you are going to see every now and then because not everyone is into wrestling. To Harrison’s credit, she did appear once, didn’t like it, and is staying away. If she has no interest, at least she is staying away instead of taking multiple checks and then bashing the industry after. Fair enough and it leaves more space for the people who are having a good time.
