Transgender Wrestler's State Championship Win Sparks Controversy After He Was Forbidden To Wrestle Against Boys!

Critics are up in arms over a transgender wrestler's undefeated season due to the fact that he's only allowed to wrestle girls.

Mack Beggs, who has been transitioning into a male and taking testosterone for more than a year, won the state championship match of the girl's 110-pound weight class.

According to the Forth Worth Star-Telegram, parents aren't thrilled by the Texas teen's stellar 55-0 season, calling him a "cheater" for playing in the girls' tournament while so "beefed up."

Girls in the tournament have forfeited rather than face the 17-year-old on the mat, and the controversy reached a peak when Mack clinched the championship on Saturday.

While some people are upset that the trans teen is competing with girls, everyone seems to agree the situation isn't the Trinity High School student's fault — as he says he'd rather wrestle against boys.

But due to state league rules, athletes are required to compete per the gender listed on their birth certificates.

Parents are especially upset by the league permitting Mack to use testosterone as a

Ryan Phillippe is getting his mojo back!

The Shooter star appeared on WWE Smackdown on Tuesday and was graciously welcomed in the ring by wrestling pro Mojo Rawley.

Though no smackdown ensued with Phillippe in the ring (he could at least have ripped his shirt off or something…), the 42-year-old said he was living out his "boyhood dreamzzzz" when he posted a clip of the moment on his Instagram.

While his stint in the ring may have been uneventful, Phillippe found himself instigating some serious post-match drama backstage between Mojo and Curt Hawkins — who confuses the Cruel Intentions actor with Mark Wahlberg! Ha!

(See Curt, Mark only hooked up with Reese Witherspoon in the movie Fear — Ryan's Reese romance was IRL.)

The USA Network star wasn't the only one to enjoy his time in the ring — his 13-year-old son Deacon went wild for his dad in the audience, capturing the "AWESOME" moment on IG!

Way to go, Ryan — next time, we just hope you get tossed around a little bit instead of just standing there and looking pretty. LOLz!

Ch-ch-check out clips and pics from the actor's smackdown experience (below)!

These poor, poor coaches…

Two wrestling coaches with the Mongolian national team literally ripped off their clothing in protest of a bad call during an Olympic match that ended up handing the bronze medal to Uzbekistan's Ikhtiyor Navruzov on Sunday.

Navruzov had been wrestling against Mongolia's Mandakhnaran Ganzorig, and with about seven seconds left in the match, the Mongolian wrestler started celebrating after what he felt was a very clear win for the bronze.

Only… the judges didn't see it that way.

Officials decided to penalize Ganzorig for what they felt was fleeing and not engaging in those final seconds, a decision which made the score 7-7. After the Mongolians protested the call, and lost, Navruzov was given another point, and in turn, the bronze.

Byambarenchin Bayarra and another Mongolian coach went crazy in response, stripping off their clothing and yelling at the judges, eventually getting all the way down to their underwear and refusing to leave the mat.

The moment quickly went viral, with all kinds of tweets and reaction to it occurring in real time this afternoon (below):
