Re: Why the weird backlash over Naomi's title win?
People have just gotten it into their heads that certain wrestlers are undeserving of anything and that because they personally don't like them, they're objectively shit. Cena in the mid 2000s, Roman now. It has nothing to do with Naomi being black. Ember Moon is generally popular with NXT fans so I'm not sure why she's being used as an example. Any complaints are usually about her lack of character and build up, not her skin colour.
It's simple fanboyism. Some fans are elitist twats and any perceived injustice against their darling leads to a shitstorm. Right now, it's cool among these people to think Naomi is the worst thing ever and how dare she go over their perfect little princess Bliss. I'm not a fan of Naomi personally but I have no real issue with her winning the championship. She's been around longer than Bliss and worked as hard as anybody else.
I'm really not seeing this massive skill gap between the two women. You have some guys acting like Ellsworth just went over Austin clean. They both suck in the ring.
