The pro wrestler was ready to get down on one knee too! He asked fellow wrestler Laura to marry him in the middle of their bout…and right after his girl pinned him!
As he’s huffing and puffing, Joey gets down on one knee and says to Laura, “We’ve been talking about this so much that I feel like this was the only way to surprise you. Laura Claire James, I love you with all of my heart.” Before actually popping the question, he pulls out the ring, which makes the whole room go crazy — and makes Laura immediately say yes! Too sweet!
Although the crowd was loving the battle between Laura and Joey, clearly they loved the proposal even more. The fans screamed louder than ever when Joey asked Laura to marry him, with some even chanting “Holy s—!” and “She said yes!” Needless to say, it made for one eventful proposal!
But the excitement wasn’t over once Joey put the ring on Laura’s finger. While the bout between them became awfully romantic with the proposal, Joey clearly had some unfinished business with his now-fiance, because he pinned her right after their celebratory engagement makeout! Looks like even love doesn’t overpower winning for Joey!
Even though Joey took Laura down, it was actually quite the hilarious way to complete unique proposal. Plus, he joked that he needed the winnings from the match to help pay off the ring, which made it even funnier! It was a perfect way for two wrestlers to get engaged — congrats, Joey and Laura!
