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.
