Pro Wrestler Joey Ryan Proposes to Girlfriend Mid-Match — Then Goes for Pin! (VIDEO)

Not every big story in professional wrestling has to do with WWE. In fact, some of the best stories take place on the independent circuit, as evidenced by the latest viral stunt by internet sensation Joey Ryan. Just two short months after he made headlines with a ridiculous crotch slam during a match in Japan — a move which got him an endorsement deal with YouPorn, of all things — Ryan is now popping the question mid-ring!

During an intergender match with girlfriend Laura James for Finest City Wrestling in San Diego, Ryan took her by surprise with a sudden marriage proposal. Although it’s not that surprising Ryan popped the question, we doubt James expected it to happen in the ring, much less during an actual match. And yet, even after James said “Yes!” to the proposal, Ryan remained the consummate scoundrel, immediately going for the pin on his now-fiancee! This was just amazing, whether you’re into pro wrestling or not. Considering how the engagement went, it’s hard not to wonder how they’ll top this for the wedding. Congratulations to the happy couple! Watch the video below:
