There's no better place for wrestlers to get engaged than "in the ring."

San Diego wrestler Joey Ryan proposed to his girlfriend, Laura James, in the middle of a match this past weekend … and she accepted.

Ryan and James both wrestle for San Diego-based wrestling promotion Finest City Wrestling.

In the heat of battle, Ryan surprised James by popping the question in the center of the ring.

While she was distracted, Ryan pinned James to earn the victory.
