A few months ago, indie wrestler Joey Ryan was celebrating the viral success of a video clip and a new endorsement deal with YouPorn. Now, he’s celebrating an engagement, too.
On Saturday, Ryan was wrestling an intergender match against his real-life girlfriend, Laura James, when he surprised his opponent – and the fans in attendance – by dropping to one knee and asking her to marry him. And like all good heels, he made sure to knock out the referee before making his move.
With the ref unconscious, Ryan scurried to his corner, reached into a bag and pulled out a ring – “We’ve been talking about this so much that I feel like this was the only way to surprise you,” he said, as James smiled and the crowd chanted their approval. “Will you marry me?”
James said yes and the two embraced in the middle of the ring. Then, noticing that the referee was beginning to stir, the dastardly Ryan quickly rolled up his new fiancée for the pin.
“Listen, first and foremost, I’m a professional. I need that winner’s share of the match purse,” Ryan told James. “But, yeah, let’s get married.”
Ryan, as you probably remember, rose to fame late last year after a video of him using his penis to flip an opponent became a sensation, a clip that earned him the title “King of Dong Style” and a sponsorship from YouPorn Sports. He’s also just shown up in the second season of Lucha Underground, playing an undercover cop with an epic mustache. So, yeah, things are definitely looking up for the indie vet. All hail the power of the penis.
