Re: Crowd reaction to Divas match.
The same people who chant "boring" are the same ones who don't even pay attention to the match. Just because it's Eve and Layla (WWE Divas) they automatically dismiss them as terrible in-ring workers which was not the case the tonight.
Then again, what do most wrestling fans even know about ring psychology these days? Slow paced and methodical is boring to these people. Eve working Layla's ribs, Laya's babyface comeback but landing on the ribs causing her to lose the match isn't entertaining and doesn't have them emotionally invested. No, what they prefer is chops and kicks and elbows and Kudo Drivers. Because that folks, is awesome. If a woman could do a Kudo Driver she is an amazing wrestler. If all she does is work a body scissors, boring!
Can you blame them though? The Divas matches have been on decline for a while now. Even if Eve vs Layla was better than a typical divas match, overall Divas matches have gained a bad reputation over the last few years that it will take a lot more for people to give them respect. A few months ago we had Kelly vs Brie Bella on PPV. Most people just don't take Divas matches seriously anymore, even if the match itself isn't that bad. That is just the way it is now.
