If you are a video game enthusiast, then the name Richard Tyler Blevins – otherwise known as Ninja – would have definitely rung a bell just now. Richard has been noted as such a superlative gamer and streamer that even Business Insider described him as “the most popular video-game player in the world right now” in the title of a 2018 interview. That interview was actually granted to them by Ninja’s Wife Jessica Goch (now known in the media also as Jessica Blevin). As you can see, there’s more to the gamer and his wife that you never knew—facts that you can’t find anywhere else.
See Why Jessica Goch’s Husband Ninja is Considered Such a Big Name Among Gamers
There is a reason why big media houses like Business Insider would want to interview Jessica as we have seen. That reason is tied up with whom her husband is. It’s something similar to what may happen to a wife of an NFL star: the WAGS kind of stuff.
Well, to put it differently, gamers may well be taken for the electronic version of the traditional athletes in terms of fame and fortune as well as their raison d’etre. So, in line with the WAGS phenomenon of the traditional athletic realms, gamers’ wives and girlfriends have also begun to attract unique attention of their own. And just as it is with the wives and girlfriends of EPL, NBA, NFL and MLB stars, the fame enjoyed by the women in a gamer’s life tends to be proportional to the level of prominence the gamer has garnered.
