Apparently, racism is the answer to alot of questions these days.



It's cringe-worthy at this point.

Re: Why the weird backlash over Naomi's title win?

Well, I think it was obvious that they gave her the title as "here you go, Wrestlemania will be in your hometown and we don't have any black champions during black history month" So, it feels kind of cheap, and it's also solidified by the fact that she botched the finish of the match with a move she does all the time.

No. That is not correct.

Naomi is simply in the talent range of Eva Marie, Dana Brooke, Kelly Kelly... you know, women that should never have had or ever get a title run. Even the Bellas are better than Naomi...
Ok, maybe you arent racist.

You are just blind. Naomi isnt a great wrestler by any means, in fact I would say she is pretty bad. But Alexa Bliss is terrible too and you loved her title run.

Cant hate on one person for botches and bad matches and like another. Thats hypocritical.

Race has something to do with it. Also the way she portrays her character. I've never been a big fan of hers but she worked her butt off to get to this point. Just compare the effort she puts in compared to Cameron.

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.

Alexa is great on the mic. Naomi is not.

Alexa is passable in the ring. Not great and obviously green, but improving and not fucking up the same shit after 7 years. Naomi is still terrible, still misses her moves because she is sloppy and reckless, and botches her own finish and had to rely on the more green wrestler to salvage the botch.

Yeah, Alexa is clearly as terrible as the talentless waste of a roster spot that is Naomi. Fuck sake, I've ripped into Naomi for a while now because she has never improved and is still the botching, untalented person she was years ago.

Thanks for the wonderful memories Ultimate Warrior... happy you got to be recognised as the legend you are before you went. Rest in peace

The lack of story or build up to it. There was a better option in a triple threat between Alexa, Mickie and Becky.

Alexa has a lot of marks behind her. Naomi is one of the last relics of the old guard.

Good point. She seemed shocked when she got the "You deserve it chants." You know that bothered a lot of people who feel she isn't worthy enough for that title — or even that chant...
