Re: Why the weird backlash over Naomi's title win?
I mean, while I'm male and a confirmed Blissfit (I even kept tweeting it at her in the hopes she'd pick up on use of that pun and now she's using it) but all the female friends I have are also Bliss fans and genuinely weren't happy about Naomi winning because 'Alexa's amazing at what she does and it makes no sense for her to lose to Naomi, this is bullshit'.
My best friend and I only really bother with SD infrequently and when we do watch, it's because we only really like Alexa because the booking for others we like has been shit enough to make us not give a shit about them. I spoke to her yesterday and she wasn't happy at all with the EC results and I genuinely get the feeling we won't be watching this week (though we've not discussed watching SD tomorrow yet, we normally watch on Wednesdays on a streaming site because I have Sky Sports but she doesn't and we can only manage to get through the shows by watching together so we can mock the bullshit and discuss something else during a boring match/promo, which happens 85% of the time at the very least. Anyway, I wouldn't be surprised if we mutually agreed to skip this week's SD, purely based on Alexa losing the title to Naomi).
It feels like a few people here and a lot of people on Reddit have this weird fetish where because Alexa happens to be an attractive woman, they have to pretend she's not very good as a talker, actress or wrestler and then try to justify it with ridiculous reasoning while those same people pretend that Trish Stratus got over and is a HOFer due to talent rather than looks (she was basically dogshit in the ring but woe betide anyone who was actually watching while she was on the roster speaks the truth to these kids who only know of her thanks to the WWE propaganda machine, post-Trish retirement).
Then again, popular things tend to be hated by a minority of vocal neckbeards just to be contrary so Alexa Bliss seems to fit that to a tee, judging from some of the comments I've seen mostly on Reddit but also spilling over to this place too.
