Why the weird backlash over Naomi's title win?

While most normal people were happy for Naomi finally winning the title, there were some groups of people across the internet (pretty much all dudes) that were having mental breakdowns over her win like she was 2007 Cena or something.

Apparently, these people are getting so heated about this because Naomi shouldnt be champion due to occasional botches and apparently not being great on the mic.

What I want to know is why that shit didnt stop any woman in the past but suddenly now its a big problem for Naomi? Alexa Bliss winning the title after just a few weeks, despite not having had a single above average match in NXT or Smackdown was fine, but Naomi finally winning the title after more than half a decade of work and being passed over for women half as talented, is a horrible thing?

Im usually the last person to say this but I think Naomi is suffering from the same thing that makes Ember Moon a "terrible" choice to be NXT womens champion, and the same thing that makes Kofi Kingston "midcard level talent" despite being better in the ring and on the mic than most main eventers.

If Naomi looked like Bliss or Becky people would be declaring her one of the best womens wrestlers of all time and completely ignoring all botches and mistakes.
