Joey Ryan has the whole world talking after beating Danshoku Dino with his penis… in a pro wrestling match. I wish I was lying but that’s exactly what happened during their match in Osaka, Japan. Here’s the video that has gone viral:
I thought wrestling was fake until I saw this video

After the video went viral, including being highlighted on ESPN, Ryan spoke to VICE Sports about it:
I have to give credit where credit is due—Danshoku Dino, who I was wrestling in the match, he plays a very unorthodox character, very homoerotic to say the least. Part of his offense is to inappropriately touch and grab opponents for the thrill of it, or maybe to throw them off their game a bit. He speaks very little English, but wrestlers can usually speak wrestling, so we understand something. So we're going over the match and he says 'Maybe I grab, maybe you no sell, because American cock so big and so strong.' So it was kind of his idea. We both play sexual characters so it fit with us.
We both employ a lot of comedy in our wrestling, we try to keep wrestling fun and light-hearted as much as possible. That was maybe the most ridiculous part of the match, but it wasn't the only ridiculous part of the match. There were a lot of interactions that were just as over the top.
I think there was a little bit of buzz going into us wrestling as far as our characters and our personalities... The Japanese audience maybe expected us to do something like this. Although it may be shocking to see, I think they expected us to maybe raise the bar comedically, as it were.
