There is also the fact that her two biggest matches in her career she's botched the finish.

WM30 was in the women's title match and the finish was supposed to be AJ grabbing her hand and make it look like Naomi was tapping out, instead Naomi tapped out all on her own.

Then biggest moment of her career and she botched her finisher because she rushed it and Alexa couldn't get into place in time. If Naomi landed 4 inches more to the left, probably would have broken some of Alexa's ribs.

She was also involved in that incident in '15 when she pinned Charlotte when that wasn't the finish.
You're racist for bringing up facts!

And this isn't the only forum where the few Naomi fans out there scream racism... it's the only defense they have since it is obvious Naomi is an untalented wrestler that can only botch her way through matches and fumble through a promo. "Feel the glo..." yeah, we feel it... hard not to when you are a nuclear meltdown level of disaster.

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

I'm happy Naomi finally got her chance to be recognized as a champion. Some of the criticism levied against her is that she's a botch machine while Alexa is praised for being green as grass. I like Alexa but she's not some standard of wrestling that the belt no longer has value because she lost it.

If you replace Alexa with Nikki Bella, and I'm sure you know my feelings about the Bellas, I would still be as pissed. The only worse champion you could find would be Eva Marie, Dana Brooke, or Nia Jax. The belt has lost value not because of who lost it, but because of the blackhole of talent that now wears it.

Nikki is another talent that gets more hate than credit. She's not Luna Vachon but she can have a credible match and has improved. The same holds true for Naomi. She's not polished but her botches are used against her as though others have crisp matches.

The only thing outside of Naomi's control is creative. I wish she would've had a real feud with Alexa before getting the belt. But the WWE likes to play hot tag with its championships. She's probably losing by the next PPV. Or even tonight. So, all this backlash may be moot.

First, the others have far fewer matches filled with botches. Second, there is a botch then there is Naomi levels of botch... rewatch several of her matches and you see massive and embarrassing botches. Just this last match she missed simple spinning elbows, kicks, lariats, and her finisher TWICE. That isn't a bad night... that is an awful night that is routine for Naomi.

She is an embarrassment as champion.

Race may have somthing to do with it, but the main problem in my opinion was the lack of buildup. Naomi wins like 2 mathes against Bliss and she is now Womens Champion. It felt weird. It was a filler feud that most people were expecting Alexa to win so she could move on to something else and then Naomi wins out of nowhere. There was no build and it made zero sense. Naomi isnt over at all.

A botch is a botch. When the others you believe are so much better than Naomi are flawless in every match, your criticism will hold more weight with me.

Almost everyone on the roster is better than her... Dana Brooke and Eva Marie are the only ones that botch more egregiously than her. This is the same woman that botched her WM match finish for crying out loud.

The fallout is like a nuclear meltdown in here lol

I would say pure rage may be a better word than hate

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

Why the fact that she is black has to be mentioned at all? She botches a lot, she can't talk to save her life, she has no character, she has no charisma and "Feel the glow" is really stupid and it makes no sense.That is why some people don't like her not because she is black.
