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.

I could careless one way or the other since I'm not a women's wrestling fan and only watch SD once in awhile, but I think it's because she's not really good at much.

What backlash? I doubt anyone cares enough about women's wrestling for there to be any significant backlash.

For me it was the lack of buildup or storyline. She just shows up, and wins in a mediocre match.

Completely ignoring everything they've built in the last few months, which, while wasn't great, at least it was something.

That can't be true. She's talented and flawless. People clearly only dislike her because she's black.

Shes boring, generic, botches a lot, kinda ugly too, no mic, probably got the title for a Total Divas angle shit.

Undertaker is a selfish, arrogant, broken down old has been who can't give it up, who doesn't give one shit about the next generation of stars and helping the company that made him thrive. It's always all about him.

No one cared until Naomi won. Then suddenly the Smackdown womens title became the most prestigious title in the company and it became a travesty a bla- I mean bad wrestler like Naomi held the title.

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

O look... the race card. It has nothing to do with her being a shit worker in the ring and on the mic and being that for 7 years. Nope.

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...

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